Some of you may recognize my name as the author of articles in intelligence journals which center on U.S. Intelligence during WWII, POW camps in Korea and Manchuria (and OSS missions to rescue the inhabitants), and North Korea's nuclear weapons program.

Shortly, I will be writing an article on U-864 which some have speculated -- like U-234 -- was also carrying uranium. During my research, I stumbled on documents concerning U-234 as well. I learned, for example, that U-234 was a replacement for U-864, and that a third u-boat in the series never sailed from Germany to Japan when the war came to an end.

In addition, one document I have says that the uranium in U-234 was found in gold-lined cylinders, and another names that third u-boat, and yet another says that the Manhattan Project fully intended to use the uranium located in u-234 in their atomic program. How it was eventually used is not specified.
