    - On June 7, 1944, the troopship USS Susan B. Anthony transported nearly 3,000 Army and Navy men on their way to reinforce paratroopers dropped behind enemy lines on D-Day.

    Suddenly, two explosions hit the Susan B. just off the coast of "Bloody Omaha" in an area marked safe for passage.

    Stephen Ambrose called it "the German Army's greatest success of disrupting the landing of American reinforcements.ö

    Our Deep Sea Detectives John Chatterton and Richie Kohler, travels to France, and meet the french leading underwater researcher, Bertrand Sciboz, to dive this wreck 60 years later in hopes of unlocking the answers to what sank the Susan B. Anthony, and the story behind one of the most daring and amazing rescues at sea.

    And what sank the ship? (The history channel link doesn't work for me)

    Software is like entropy. It is difficult to grasp, weighs nothing, and obeys the second law of thermodynamics; i.e., it always increases.
