The Merchant Marines were some hardcore dudes!

CDR Salamander has a two parter on the trials of Convoy HX84.  Long story short?  You don't know what you don't know until someone tells you.

The story he paints is beyond awesome.  It's damn near incredible.  Those Merchant Marines were some hardcore dudes!  If what they did in real life was portrayed in the movies I'd swear it was a lie and done for dramatic effect. I'd probably walk out of the movie theater saying that no one would ever do anything so brave.

But they did.

Read it here but come back and tell me what you think.
