The fireball climbed into the night sky. The date was August 14, 1945, the day World War Two ended. Depot Harbour, the source of the inferno and explosion, had once been a thriving deep-water port... More > on Georgian Bay. Its massive wooden grain elevators were visible for miles. By 1945 the place was in decline, on its way to becoming a ghost town. In a warehouse across a narrow strip of water from the elevators lay hundreds of tons of cordite, an explosive intended for the war. How did the fire start? What secrets were incinerated in the white-hot flames? Hal Watson, a middle-aged teacher at a decaying school on Parry Sound, knows the answers. Flammable is a story of love and death far from the battlefields but touched at every turn by the tragedies and triumphs of two world wars.
