Book - 2018
Rate this:
Selected for the USCG Commandant's 2018 Reading List Never to Return is the harrowing tale of the torpedoing and sinking of a Coast Guard ship and the loss of 171 Coast Guardsmen off the coast of Iceland during WWII. The USS Leopold was a U.S. Coast Guard destroyer escort in a convoy of merchant ships carrying war materiel to England, on the lookout for the deadly U-boat wolf packs lurking in the North Atlantic. The Leopold was largely unarmored, lightly armed, and no match for the U-255's torpedoes. Never to Return is the story of gunner Sparky Nersasian and his shipmates' struggles to survive the Leopold's sinking.
