The HMT Rohna, a British vessel carrying American troops, was hit by a German missile in 1943 off the coast of Algeria, North Africa. The ship sank within one-half hour after being hit. Bomb damage, supplemented by heavy seas and darkness which hampered rescue work, resulted in a loss of 1,015 men, more than half of the total 1,981 American military personnel aboard.
