Romance of the Italian U-Boat
To celebrate its 29th year, in this issue of Portland Magazine, the editors have reprinted some classics from their archives, along with new graphics and updates. This article first appeared in November 1995 and related the story of three Italian U-boats that were assigned to Portland harbor in 1943. Ten Italian crewmembers met and married local Portland women. Includes an update about the Vortice, after she returned to Italy.
