The Battle of the St. Lawrence: U-boats attack special edition will be mailed out in August 2022.
The next issue in the award-winning series Canada’s Ultimate Story is Battle of the St. Lawrence: U-boats attack.
It is 1942, and the U-boat war that has been raging in the North Atlantic spills into the Gulf of St. Lawrence and onto the river itself. For three years, submarines dispatched by German Admiral Karl Dönitz have been attacking the high-seas convoys that are the lifeline of the war effort overseas.
Now the underwater killers seize on new opportunities to attack ill-defended shipping all along the eastern seaboard into the Caribbean. They include transports sailing down the St. Lawrence and out to the coast from Montreal and Quebec City.
For the first time since the War of 1812, lives are lost to hostile action in Canadian waters.
