General notes on this boat
This boat is apparently resting in the nerve/mustard gas zone and is off limits to divers forever it seems.Read more about the Schnorchel and see list of fitted boats.
Men lost from U-boats
Unlike many other U-boats, which during their service lost men due to accidents and various other causes, U-718 did not suffer any casualties (we know of) until the time of her loss.
