Re: U-Boat Losses in World War II

Does anyone know the max range of the Type XXI u-boat while submerged at max speed? About how long would the batteries last when it was going all ahead full?

U-Boats in the Black Sea

I understand that in 1942 the Germans shipped six? Type II u-boats via canal and rail to the Black Sea. How effective were they in operations and what was the ultimate fate of these boats?
