WW II comes to Virginia

William Geroux has written what appears to be an interesting book about U-Boat activity off the coast of Virginia: The Mathews Men: Seven Brothers and the War Against Hitler’s U-Boats.

As I recall reading at various times there was a lot of U-Boat activity along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts in the early years of WWII. The U-Boats were aided by the fact that black out regulations and enforcement were very lax, allowing the U-Boats to see ships silhouetted against the coastal lights. U-Boats also operated in the Gulf of Mexico.
