Robert Osbourne’s first hand account of the Bell Island Shipwrecks is as good as any one we have read. This article goes a little further than just shipwrecks though… learn about the history behind these shipwrecks and why they were destroyed. It’s a tale of U-boats, German attacks, iron ore, and the crucial role that a small island off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador played in the second world war. Have we piqued your interest yet? Good. If you want to find out more, you’ll have to read it for yourself!
