Embossed label of the previous owner, a noted military collector. From the DJ: From the details revealed here, we learn that by mid-1942 just a handful of U-boats had succeeded in sinking more Allied tonnage along the East Coast than the entire Japanese navy could claim in the Pacific. Told in a fast-paced, narrative style, the story focuses on the action in the treacherous seas off the coast of North Carolina, known for centuries as the 'Graveyard of the Atlantic' and dubbed 'Torpedo Junction' by the brave men who fought there in WWII." From The Journal of Military History: "The best account to date of America's early war against the U-Boat."--

An excellent account of a sorrowful episode for the USA and example of bad leadership and an excellent opportunity for the German U.boaters to hone their skills. A well-told story with abundant detail.
As a North Carolina native, I never dreamed all this activity took place off the cost of our state. A well-researched and detailed account of WW 2 during 1942 and 1943. Written well to hold interest and give the facts.
