CONVOY: NORTH ATLANTIC


She was a body of water where many voyages were made to funnel much needed cargo to Britain for the War effort, but also lurking beneath were Germany's greatest concentration of U-boats.
This is the story of some of those vessels, crews and convoys and how they weathered that mass of water.

This is a "TWO PART" article.....in the beginning of the article I've provided a brief history of convoy and its origins.

The article is a rather long one but it provides the reader of just how it was out there in the mid Atlantic....cold...and as every crewman had to deal with those ungodly conditions....as well as knowing...the lurking of the U-boats was a very real and "a going to happen event"....just when are they going to strike?

If you'd care to give it a read....just click the links below:



Hope you enjoy the article
