The Burning Shore

While no longer operational, these WWII-era observation towers on Delaware's coast serve to protect the memory of the people who defended and protected our country.

Summer tourists to the Delaware shore have probably seen old concrete watch towers near some of the beaches there. Today we'll learn about why they were built -- to watch for the German submarines on the East Coast during World War II. Our guest: Military journalist Ed Offley, who has chronicled the German U-boat campaign and the toll it took of ships, cargo and human life along the eastern seaboard, from New Jersey to North Carolina.
