Operation Drumbeat: The Fascinating Story of German U-Boats

Tuesday, Oct 16, 2012 from 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
After Hitler declared war upon the United States in December 1941, German Admiral Donitz enthusiastically launched a unique U-boat offensive against United States shipping off the East Coast. The campaign was initially called “Operation Drumbeat,” and sent waves of U-boats that ultimately sunk almost 400 ships at the cost of approximately 5,000 lives. Join Dr. Franz as he takes us into these U-boats, and introduces the human interest stories of both German U-boat commanders and American defenders from this dramatic and little-known story of World War II.

This event is free of charge and open to the public, however preregistration is required by contacting Mandy Goldenberg at mgoldenberg@hodges.edu or 598-6143.
