Completing a WWII novel that deals in part with the Battle of the Atlantic. Many folks don’t realize how close WWII came to mainland American shores. I first got interested in this subject years ago during my college days. With the UNC-Chapel Hill Scuba Club, I dived on several WWII shipwrecks off the Outer Banks, and many of those wrecks were victims of German U-boats. In this video, divers explore the wreck of the John D. Gill, a tanker torpedoed in 1942.
