New: View Attack Narratives

U-Boats in the Bahamas is the website for the latest book by Bahamian-American author Capt. Eric T. Wiberg, Esq. It focusses on patrols by eighty-nine German and four Italian submarines which patrolled a large area called the “Greater Bahamas region” between January 1942 and the end of 1944. This million-square-mile area extends eastwards from the east coast of Florida (Key West northwards to Savannah, Georgia), out to a line connecting Bermuda and Anegada in the northwest Caribbean. It includes the entire north coast of the Greater and Lesser Antilles, including Cuba as far west as Havana.

This is part of a larger effort to document the maritime war in the Bahamas as a colony 1939 – 1945 when HRH the Duke of Windsor served as Governor and resided in Nassau most of the war with his wife the Duchess of Windsor (Wallis Simpson). The book-length threatment should be completed by the end of 2011. Meanwhile extensive research is made available to the public free of charge including PowerPoint presentations, maps, lists of thousands of crew on various vessels, hundreds of convoys, data on ships attacked and submarine patrols, and articles published on the topic. In the Fall of 2011 all of the hard-to-find original “Survivors Statements” – primary resources – should be ready to upload onto the site. The researcher is a maritime attorney who grew up in the Bahamas and has operated over 100 vessels to, from, in and around the islands over the years. Please sign the guest book, Click Here!
