Why She Sank


Author(s):
Abstract:
Eighty years after the USS San Diego exploded and sank in the North Atlantic, historian Russel Van Wyk found the confessions of a German spy named Kurt Jahnke. Jahnke confessed to the Russians that he was responsible for the ship’s explosion, and had led the diversionary activities of German intelligence in the United States from 1914 to 1918.
