26281. (DVD) War Zone – World War II Off North Carolina’s Outer Banks.

26281. (DVD) War Zone – World War II Off North Carolina’s Outer Banks. A film by Kevin Duffus. In 1942, the United States suffered one of its worst defeats of WWII, not in Europe or the Pacific, but along the nation’s eastern seaboard. Three hundred ninety-seven ships were sunk or damaged and nearly 5,000 people were killed. For six months, 65 German U-boats hunted merchant ships practically unopposed within view of coastal communities. The greatest concentration of these attacks occurred off North Carolina’s Outer Banks. “War Zone” features eyewitness accounts of lifesavers, merchant sailors and residents, and describes how life was altered when war was waged on Outer Banker’s doorsteps. Learn the truth behind decades-old urban legends of German spies, saboteurs and sympathizers. Viewers will marvel at the courage of a young mother who delivered her newborn son in a storm-tossed lifeboat off Cape Hatteras and how the event marked a turning point in the battle of “Torpedo Junction.” Most amazing is the first-hand account of the nearly calamitous first engagement between a U-boat and a U.S. Navy destroyer, and the sinking of the U-701, just 22 miles from Hatteras. “War Zone” is a story of infamy, irony, and innocence lost. 180 minute 2-DVD Set $19.95.
