World War II on America’s Doorstep! U-Boats off the Mid-Atlantic Coast

  • Wednesday, January 10, 2018
  • 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • MacArthur Memorial Visitor Center Theater

The waters off the North Carolina coast serve as a uniquely accessible underwater museum and memorial to WWII’s Battle of the Atlantic. Since 2008, NOAA’s Monitor National Marine Sanctuary and partners have documented and surveyed this collection of WWII Allied and German vessels in order to protect these fragile historic resources for future generations, and to preserve the memory of the brave Allied service men and U.S. merchant mariners who fought to rid the world of tyranny. 

Please join us on January 10, when Tane Renata Casserley, Research Coordinator, Monitor National Marine Sanctuary (NOAA) discusses the danger posed by German U-boats during the Battle of the Atlantic, their effect on Allied shipping, and the naval adaptations and convoy system that finally ended the U-boat threat.
