Fine in Fine jacket. With this book a master storyteller puts the reader in the midst of a deadly battle waged by German submarines right at America's doorstep. The devastating effects of this mostly secret, six-month-long attack on merchant ships in U.S. coastal waters will come as a shock to many. From the details revealed here, we learn that by mid1942, 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.
Very Good in Good dust jacket. 0870217585. Xviii, , 367,  pages, illustrations, cloth, DJ, very good. 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."--
