Best Kept SecretsCaptured Nazi Flag - Annapolis, MD

in Best Kept Secrets

Did you know that there is a Nazi flag on display at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland? I didn't either until I saw it inside Bancroft Hall. The story behind it is quite compelling and involves a German U-boat in north Africa.
