February 20 @ 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
1942 – “The War at Sea.” German U-Boats bring the Battle of the Atlantic to shores off New Jersey. Roaming freely along the eastern seaboard they attacked and sank scores of defenseless and unprotected merchant ships, often withing sight of land.
This lecture, presented by Robert Stead, will highlight the anti-submarine tactics and strategies employed to turn the tide of battle and defeat the U-Boat threat.
