The Robert E. Lee and the U-166-- Part 2

The U-166 was deployed as part of the German war effort to cut off Britain and other U.S. allies from vital equipment, supplies and personnel.  The U-166 met its end about 45 miles southeast of of the mouth of the Mississippi River.

The U-boats were the most effective German naval weapon in the Atlantic Ocean.  Quite a few Allied ships were sunk in the Gulf of Mexico and even more along the U.S. Atlantic coast.
