I found a thread here with some very nice photos thanks for that, and any additional suggestions are very much appreciated. It must have been tough duty in those old boats, looking at the exposed con station on the conning tower, and imagining what the quarters must have been like with that stage of technology, it must have been very hard. I wonder if there are any good accounts written by officers or crew of that era. I suppose the mortality rate was less than in WWII, i wonder what the overall figures of total number of boats and total number of ships sunk might me. They had some spectacular successes for sure, but it sounds like the convoy system did the trick for the allies in both wars.

If you're looking for crew accounts, try this site. A lot of copyright expired texts from the era you are interested in such as this:

http://www.archive.org/details/WasJe...bootWissenMuss

I did a quick search of 'uboat' for you:

http://www.archive.org/search.php?qu...iatype%3Atexts

The problem you may have is any accounts will be in German. But you'll only get out of it the same effort (searching) that you put into it.

I dont mind the german part, i can do some and my father can help with some too. He did not want us to learn it but he is fluent and was there during the war.

I had three cousins who were U boat skippers in the WWII but they went down with their boats.

thanks for that ...i tried a search and found that one thread and will keep working on it. thanks for that link for references. It is a remarkable era to read about the early days of the U boats in Germany, it sounds like they worked very hard on the research and many of the boats in actual service were actually semi experimental it sounds like.

You can obtain a very detailed plan of the S.M. U-Kreuzer U 139 Kapitänleutnant Schwieger from Christian Schmidt in Germany.

Johnny Herbert is shown in the Benetton B195.  Herbert took a deserved victory at his home British Grand Prix at Silverstone, beating the Ferrari of Frenchman Jean Alesi into second place by more than 16 seconds, and ahead of fellow briton David Coulthard in the third placed Williams.  He also claimed victory at the Italian Grand Prix at Monza.  Along with Michael Schumachers nine victories, Herbert  helped Benetton win their first constructors championship in the 1995 season.  The Formula One Benetton B195 was designed by Rory Byrne and Ross Brawn for use in the 1995 Formula One season by Benetton.  The B195 was almost identical to the B194 but for a change of engine supplier from Ford to Renault V10 engine, the same type the rival Williams team was using.  With his first two Formula One wins under his belt in 1995, Johnny Herbert won just one more race, winning at the Nurburgring at the European Grand Prix in 1999, racing for Stewart Ford.  He retired from Formula One in 2000.

Half Price! - £40.00
David Coulthard made his Grand Prix debut at the Spanish Grand Prix in 1994.  Only an electrical problem with his Williams Renault stopped Coulthard finishing 3rd in his first ever Grand Prix.  This performance was enough to confirm his potential and earn a drive for the 1995 season.  Winning at Estoril, on the podium at Interlagos, Magny-Cours, Silverstone, Hockenheim, Hungaroring and T I Aida, placed him third in the championship in his first full Grand Prix season.  Coulthard moved to McLaren for the 1996 season proving on many occasions that he could match the pace of team leader Mika Hakkinen, who has a reputation as one of the fastest.  For 1997, Coulthard took over the mantle of Britains No.1 driver and was well qualified to do so.  Winning at Melbourne and Monza, second at A1 Ring and Jerez.  Fourth in the championship prior to Schumachers exclusion.  Coulthard drives with a balance of flair and aggression which earned him considerable respect.  After nearly fifteen years as a top flight driver, Coulthard has now retired from driving, leaving a remarkable legacy behind him.  Twice winner of the British Grand Prix in 1999 and 2000, he has represented Scotland and Great Britain at the highest level of motorsport for well over a decade.
