A three page article article from YANK that tells the sorrowful tale of the sinking of a proud ship:

"The baby flat-top LISCOME BAY was sunk by a torpedo from an enemy submarine on the day before Thanksgiving of 1943. The LISCOME BAY was on her first battle assignment, covering the occupation of Makin in the Gilbert [islands]...The torpedo struck a half an hour before dawn and it was still dark when LISCOME BAY sank."

The ship went under in less than twenty-four minutes; up to that time it was the U.S. Navy's second largest loss since the sinking of the ARIZONA at Pearl Harbor. Only 260 men survived.
