Men Who Sailed The Liberty Ships Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Tue, Aug 7, 2012 -- 11:01 PM

This program pays homage to the merchant seamen of WWII, civilians who volunteered to sail the prefabricated cargo vessels known as "liberties." Performing many of the war's most hazardous duties, they suffered some of the highest casualty rates, but when these non-military men returned home, Congress denied them benefits for injuries and society overlooked them in victory celebrations. This program combines personal stories of war at sea with photographs and archival film footage to provide a firsthand account of what it was like performing one of the war's most dangerous jobs.
