VIRTUAL LECTURE

Torpedo Junction: The German U-Boat War on the American Coast
Presented by Ed Moore, docent at The Mariners’ Museum

FREE. Advance registration is required.

About the presentation:
After Pearl Harbor, the United States Navy was sent to slow the Japanese in the Pacific, leaving the Atlantic Coast undefended from the German submarine onslaught. From Maine to Miami in the Atlantic, from Miami to New Orleans in the Gulf of Mexico, a few Coast Guard Cutters fought to slow the sinking of hundreds of Allied ships.


Viewers are welcome to send Ed comments or questions, which he will answer following the presentation.
