The Enemy On Our Doorstep
Bell Islander Steve Neary was 17 years old when U-boats attacked shipping off Bell Island. He witnessed the brutal aftermath first hand.
He provides a riveting account of the attacks using reports of the people involved, including seamen on the stricken vessels, and those who took part in the rescue and cared for the injured and killed. He includes excerpts from the logs of various vessels including those of U-Boats U-513 and U-518, and excerpts from the Board of Inquiry.
This well researched and well written book recounts the story of the only North American community to be directly attacked by German Troops in World War II.
