RARA-AVIS: James Lee Burke

A question for Burke readers, and any others who are interested. At the beginning of Dixie City Jam, Robicheaux describes a WW II German sub that rests at the bottom of the Gulf, off New Orleans. He then relates how German subs used to lie waiting at the mouth of the Mississippi for cargo ships to come down the River; they would then torpedo these ships. Does anyone know if this is true. Did this actually happen during the war? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks, Len Engel
