      Torpedoed The True Story of the World War II Sinking of "The Children's Ship" (Book): Heiligman, Deborah: "A true account of the attack and sinking of the passenger ship SS City of Benares, which was evacuating children from England during WWII."--Provided by . Torpedoed! Historian Diana Preston presents findings about the Lusitania and draws on recently discovered interviews to bring the drama to life. Book Reviews History. Recommended : Diana Preston.

      Torpedoed is an exemplary title of nonfiction for middle grade readers. The information is accessible and well-documented, and the writing is straightforward and attention-grabbing. No doubt this title will be recognized as an important, notable addition to World War II history, however, I do not feel that it is remarkable or meets Newbery. TORPEDOED THE TRUE STORY OF THE World War II SINKING OF “THE CHILDREN’S SHIP” ABOUT THE BOOK Amid the constant rain of German bombs and the escalating violence of World War II, British parents by the thousands chose to send their children out of the country: the wealthy, independently; the poor, through a government.

    What I didn't like about the book: Heiligman overuses several repetitive phrases. They started to annoy me. Black and white illustrations of the children aboard the ship after it was torpedoed but before it sunk were supposed to show the confusion and action, but they were not well-drawn and actually detracted from the story, in my opinion.   Torpedoed The True Story of the World War II Sinking of "The Children's Ship" (Book): Heiligman, Deborah: A true account of the attack and sinking of the passenger ship SS City of Benares, which was evacuating children from England during WWII.
