Mr. Kurzman talked about his book, No Greater Glory: The Four Immortal Chaplains and the Sinking of the Dorchester in World War II, published by Random House. On February 3, 1943, the U.S. Army troopship Dorchester was torpedoed in the northern Atlantic. Among the passengers were four chaplains. As the ship went down, the four men distributed life jackets to others onboard, and gave away their own when the supply proved insufficient. In the book, Mr. Kurzman chronicles the lives of the chaplains, beginning with their enlistments in the armed forces. He includes information about their families and careers. Following prepared remarks, the author responded to questions from the audience. close
