Suwannee Links

Click on a link below to go to the web page containing the information described.

The video "Moment of Impact" is based on interviews with men from the Suwannee, and relates to the kamikaze attacks and their aftermath. The "Suwannee Interviews" are the complete individual interviews used to create "Moment of Impact."

The three links titled "Kamikaze Strike" are to videos of the October 26, 1944 kamikaze attack on the Suwannee. The same video clip is available in three different formats to accommodate different video players. You will most likely need a high speed internet connection to view any of these. The MP4 file may take a couple of minutes to load. There is no audio. Take care in showing this to anyone who was aboard the ship, as viewing it could be pretty traumatic for someone who was there when it happened.
