OneTubeRadio.com is running its first ever contest. The winner will receive a copy of the book U-Boats Against Canada: German Submarines in Canadian Waters by Michael L. Hadley.
During World War II, German subs operated in Canadian waters, as far up the St. Lawrence River as 172 miles from Quebec City. They sank ships, laid mines, and even set up a secret weather station in Labrador. My earlier post about that weather station was based largely upon this book. The book is very well written. It reads like a novel, but is extremely well researched with extensive footnotes.
The book is out of print, but you will receive a used copy (a former library book from Wheaton, Illinois) in excellent condition. To enter, simply follow these two steps:
- “Like” us on Facebook. Just click on this link and then click the “Like” button on top of the page. (If it says “Liked,” then you already have this step taken care of.)
- Go to the contest announcement, which appears on that same Facebook page. I’m thinking of a number between 1 and 100. Post your guess as a comment to that Facebook post, and whoever is closest will be the winner. In case of a tie, the first guess wins.
The contest ends at 11:59 PM Central Time on April 25, 2015.
