World War II Off North Carolina's Coast

When people think of World War II, they think of Europe and the Pacific. Not the coast of North Carolina. But in 1942, German U-Boats were patrolling the waters just off the North Carolina coast. In fact, North Carolina had more U-boats off its coast than any other east coast state during the war. Kevin Duffus is a documentary filmmaker and author who's written the new book "War Zone: World War II off the North Carolina Coast."
