Kriegsmarine Officers Pic

Recommended Posts

Picture of Admiral Donitz with his flotilla commanders and successful U-boat captains

 

Wonder how many of this group survived the war.

Photo was possibly taken at the Marineschule Mürwik (near Kiel). Of 40.000 U-Boot men, 30.000 never returned. This is recorded at the Marine Ehrenmal in Kiel-Laboe

The nearby U-Boot is an original from the war, preserved and can be visited and boarded for a small entry fee.
