10:09 - U-boat commander updates
In a major update Rainer compiled a list of 172 death dates for German U-boat Commanders of WWII. See partial updated list. We also did a few other improvements (estimated/rough date to full date, minor spelling errors for 2 men ...). We often get e-mails asking if a certain commander is still alive today, this should answer some of those. Sadly fewer and fewer are alive today. Of the 268 still with unknown fate the youngest would be 90 years old.
