BO MAHER (221-1986)
United States Navy
BOB was the Fire Control Petty
Officer aboard USS BORIE (DD 215) during the famous battle between
their ship and U-405. In this battle, both ships were lost,
the entire German crew was lost and about 1/3 of the American crew was lost.
BOB tells in great and vivid detail about this battle in our CD-13
which is available to Members at $15 or non-Members at $20 with shipping on $5
in the USA or $10 anywhere else.
A scan of our Membership Roster some years ago showed that BOB lived not far from OTTO GIESE (45-1984). OTTO had been the II.W.O. of U-405 but was transferred off to go to Commanding Officer's School just before U-405 departed on her final Feindfahrt (war patrol) so, since out motto is "Yesterday's Enemies are Today's Friends" we put the two former enemies in contact with each other.
