Deadrise isn’t fictional. Deadrise is based off a real British battleship named the HMS Curacoa that was sunk by the Queen Mary in 1942 when she was struck and run thru by the ocean liner. The Queen Mary was on orders to not deviate from course even though that meant hitting and sinking the much slower battleship. The Queen Mary was also not allowed to stop or assist in picking up any survivors. The results was the deaths of many of the HMS Curacoa 460 crew members.
Very interesting! I had no idea. Thanks for letting us know. – Mike
