WWII U-boat diving depth, source needed

I am looking for a published source, hopefully in English but if not in another language, that discusses the issue of how deeply U-boats could and did dive during World War II. A reference book I consulted indicates that the most common types of German submarines during World War II could dive to 150 meters (492 feet). What would be interesting to read is an analysis of how deeply German subs actually dived, and how Allied escort vessels responded to German attempts to stay below Allied counter-measures. If someone is aware of one or more published sources, I would appreciate it if they would post a message to the forum giving the full citation information.

Thanks,

Mark C. Jones
