Hello Karl Good points you got there, but just a few of my thoughts on the subject: In "Das Boot", during racing towards the convoy position, they come accross a DD, the captain orders to dive and initiates attack procedures against the DD, reaching the point of opening bow caps... I think this cons...

Hello Matthias :!: Many original plans of German KM ships were kept in Berlin in the Naval Institute there (the actual name of the institute escapes me right now). In 1945, EVERYTHING was taken by the Russians and shiped back to Moscow. In 1990, after Germany was re-united, a train carrying a "speci...

Plus there's a Greek singer with the exact name :D I agree with the British names all the way, most impressive names indeed. The Greek navy has a mix of names a...

After the lunch we had with the survivors, we had the opportunity to talk with them and one of them specifically told me that they got rid of the anchors and chains after the Denmark Stra...
