Today we think of the Great Lakes as a calm and tranquil haven. Fierce

storms may occasionally roar across the waters but they are a rare

occurrence, the aberration of natural violence rather than that of man.

However during World War II the Great Lakes were a boiling cauldron of

naval activity, most long forgotten by the public. With the passing of the

Greatest Generation memory is lost leaving up to historians to tell the true

story of this remarkable period.  This presentation pulls back the blanket

of mystery long thrown over the Inland Seas during the Second World War.

Pay special attention to what could have happened at the Soo Locks!
