THE MATHEWS MEN: SEVEN BROTHERS AND THE WAR AGAINS HITLER'S U-BOATS ~ WILLIAM GEROUX --> REVIEW
Getting schooled again. It seems every time I read a book like this, I wonder where I was in high school when I should have been learning this stuff.
This is the story of the Merchant Marines and how the majority of them came from Mathews County with many of them never to return again. Fathers, sons, brothers and friends alike signed up and transported items up and down the coast as well as to far away places and the Caribbean to keep the Allies supplied
Many times the ships were torpedoed by the German U-Boats that hung out in wait to sink and American Ship.
I found this book fascinating.
