Attacked at Sea - Michael J. Tougias & Alison O Leary
On May 19, 1942, a U-boat in the Gulf of Mexico stalked its prey fifty miles from New Orleans. The submarine set its sights on the freighter "Heredia".

Fast asleep in their berths, the Downs family had no idea that two torpedoes were heading their way. When the ship exploded, chaos ensued...and each family member had to find his or her own path to survival. (J 940.54 Tou)
