The brass caps of the U.S. Navy have acknowledged many times as to how different the annals of W.W. II naval warfare would read were it not for the officers and men of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutters and the vital roll they played to win supremacy in the battle of the Atlantic.

This article recalls a twelve hour period that was lived along a highly contested patch of real estate somewhere in the North Atlantic. The protagonists driving the plot was a Coast Guard Commander named James A. Hirshfield (pictured) and the men of his command on board USCGC CAMPBELL, a cutter of the Secretary class. Due to the fact that this article was subject to wartime censorship, the journalist wrote nothing as to when exactly this event took place, but we surmised that at some point in late '42 or early '43, six crews in Admiral Doenitz' U-boat fleet came across this cutter and were never heard from again.
