BeschreibungDuring the first several months of U.S. participation in World War II, our East Coast was menaced by German's u-boats. The submarines were sinking an average of a ship-a-day and they had suffered no loses. But at midnight on April 13, 1942, the U.S.S. Roper discovered the U-85 recharging its batteries off the coast of North Carolina. The U-85 was the first U-boat sunk in American waters. The Roper would have been the most celebrated destroyer in the U.S. Navy had it not been for the captain's next order. In Time Will Tell, Ann Davis reveals the truth about the burial of twenty-nine German sailor's in Hampton, Virginia's National Cemetery. Why were they buried at night though with "military honors?"
