VIDEO: Sunken Nazi U-Boat in the Gulf Of Mexico

Posted July 17th, 2014 @ 4:31am by AMTB

A recent diving expedition in the Gulf of Mexico has produced stunning new images of one of Hitler's U-boats from World War II.

Did you have any idea the Nazis got so close to American soil? On July 30, 1942, a Coast Guard escort vessel destroyed the U-boat after it attacked and sank the SS Robert E. Lee about 25 miles southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi.
