Long Trains Roll: A fictionalized version of espionage (Nazi Saboteurs at Horseshoe Curve During WWII)Library: Greensburg Hempfield Area Library
In June of 1942, four highly trained Nazi saboteurs came ashore in Long Island, and tried to move inland to the assigned targets across the eastern seaboard. Hitler saw this potential terror attack as a most important propaganda tool.
Horseshoe Curve proved so vital to its military in moving troops between the Midwest and east coast that it was fenced off and under 24-hour military guard until 1946.
Join Ken Serfass as a PRR trainman who combines the history of railroading, World War II and politics of fighting terrorism.
