The shipping lanes off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina were prime hunting ground for these feared sea hunters. As the war raged on, however, Allied destroyers using the newly invented sonar and radar began to hunt down and destroy the U-boats as they moved in to attack. There are six U-boats resting on the seabed near Cape Hatteras, known to mariners as the Graveyard of the Atlantic. Of the 280 young German sailors who undertook these dangerous missions, only 40 survived to be taken prisoner. What might have happened if survivors from a sinking German submarine were able to land on the eastern coast of the United States?
