Publisher Summary
Taffy of Torpedo Junction

Back in print

A longtime favorite of several generations of Tar Heels, Taffy of Torpedo Junction is the thrilling adventure story of thirteen-year-old Taffy Willis, who, with the help of her pony and dog, exposes a ring of Nazi spies operating from a secluded house on Hatteras Island, North Carolina, during World War II. For readers of all ages, the book brings to life the dramatic wartime events on the Outer Banks, where German U-boats turned an area around Cape Hatteras into 'Torpedo Junction' by sinking more than sixty American vessels in just a six-month period in 1942. Taffy has been enjoyed by young and old alike since it was first published in 1957.

In 1942, thirteen-year-old Taffy, living with her grandfather on Hatteras Island, inadvertently helps capture Nazi spies responsible for passing information to offshore German submarines engaged in torpedoing American ships.
