History

The 5th Flotilla was founded again (see page on the previous combat flotilla with the same name) in June 1941 under the command of Kptlt. Karl-Heinz Moehle, who commanded the Flotilla until the end of the war. Korvkpt. Moehle was sentenced in 1946 for 5 years in prison, because the Allies accused him to give the Laconia-order to the new U-boat commanders before they went out on patrol. He then spent more than 4 years in prison.
