The opening of The Wonder City’s second book takes place in November of 1942 about two months after Owen searches out Velma for her help. And for this opening scene we are no longer in New York, but the North Atlantic east of Newfoundland where the American battleship, the USS Cauldwell is patrolling the coast for German U-boats. It appears they may have found what they are looking for.
Courtney and I had a ton of fun researching this section since we got to spend some good quality time on USS Intrepid right around the time the space shuttle Enterprise was loaded on. All of the controls in this strip were designed after the controls in various control rooms on the Intrepid.
The battle at sea continues next week!
