Recent developments on this section
March 15 2008
This section was opened to all uboat.net visitors having previously been exclusive to the Conning Tower.
22 Dec, 2007
Added 3 new functions to the patrol pages; Events during the patrol, Attacks on the boat and finally Men Lost during the patrol. This gives a much clearer view of the patrol and events during it.
July 5, 2007
Opened our new "Prior patrols of U_boat commanders" database. You can access this information from any U-boat patrol page (if we have information on that patrol). There you should see the commander for the patrol and each known officer (and his role, like IWO).
Oct 13 2004
Opened the huge Daily positions project within these patrol pages. Right now the database consists of 129059 entries of which 114115 have full daily positions (lat, long). They are linked from all U-boat patrols, search pages and elsewhere where they can be of assistance. The positions are always shown as a "map" link where you can find details on the patrol in question.
Special thanks to the Libary of Contemporary History in Stuttgart for their invaluable help on this project.
