Please know that the February 9th presentation is fully booked. There are currently no more seats available. We can only take standby reservations in the event of a cancellation.
Please join us on Friday, February 9th at 7 pm for our next monthly presentation at Buckalew’s. Our speaker will be K.A. Nelson, author of the nonfiction book “Killing Shore: The True Story of Hitler’s U-boats Off the New Jersey Coast.” K.A. is a Philadelphia-based wreck diver and Marine Corps veteran.
Exhaustively researched, Killing Shore‘s main narrative centers on eleven ships attacked by U-boats off the Jersey Shore and portrays each incident from multiple perspectives: victims, attackers, rescuers, and civilians ashore. K.A. Nelson reconstructs these events from a dramatic “seafarer’s-eye” view while weaving them into a single overarching narrative about why the Battle of the Atlantic came to American waters and how the U-boats were ultimately defeated there. The story’s conclusion presents the later lives of the surviving characters—all real people—and their descendants, in addition to the legacy of shipwrecks off the Northeastern US.
Available for pre-order from Amazon and other retailers, Killing Shore will be released on 15 April 2024 by Brookline Books (Casemate Publishers). To contact the author or learn more, visit www.KA-Nelson.com.
Complimentary hor doerves and happy hour drink prices are available starting at 6 pm, and the talk will begin at 7 pm, as is usual. Reservations are required, and a $10 donation will be collected at the door to offset our expenses. Active members will have until February 2nd to reserve a seat for this presentation, after which date non-members may reserve any remaining seats. Please note – This presentation will fill the room and there will be a waiting list.
