A little U-96 History

U-Boot U-96 (Type VIIC) was a German submarine that served during World War II. It was commissioned on August 14, 1940, and was one of the most successful submarines of the German Kriegsmarine, sinking a total of 27 ships during its service.  U-96 was built by the German shipyard German

iawerft in Kiel, and was launched on September 1, 1940. It was commanded by Kapitänleutnant Heinrich Lehmann-Willenbrock, who would later become famous as the captain of U-boat U-96 in the movie “Das Boot”.

U-96 was armed with 14 torpedoes, one 8.8 cm deck gun, one 2 cm anti-aircraft gun, and two 53.3 cm torpedo tubes at the bow and one at the stern. It had a crew of 44 men.  During i

ts service, U-96 was involved in several successful missions. On its second mission, it sank the British tanker MV Scottish Standard, and on its fourth mission, it sank the British tanker MV Conch. In May 1941, U-96 participated in Operation Rheinübung, which was an attempt to disrupt British convoys to the Soviet Union. During this

operation, U-96 sank the British aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal, and also damaged the battleship HMS Malaya.

U-96 continued to operate successfully throughout the war, until it was fi

nally sunk by British aircraft in March 1945, near Bergen, Norway. Of the 44 crew members on board, 25 were killed, and the remaining 19 were taken as prisoners of war.  U-96’s success in sinking enemy ships made it one of the most famous German submarines of World War II, and it has been the subject of numerous books, films, and documentaries.
