WW2 Naval History in the News

A neat story from the CBC today

U Boat Found in Labrador?

  1. Looks like a possibility. I have read such stories of defection so maybe we have the real deal here ... Jeff

      There's lots of lore and anecdotes.

  2. A new game scenario forms: Wolf pack vs Ice Pack.

    I seem to recall stories of captured uboat crewmen with Newfie movie ticket stubs from Grand Falls or the like in their pocket.

      Given the terrain, rocks might be a bigger hazard than bergs. The first questio is how they heck they got there? and then why?

      There is a GQ scenario featuring Brits and Jerries dodging icebergs off the Norwegian coast, it looks fun but wouldn't translate too well to my Mediterranean fleets.

      Off topic, there are good scenario ideas off of Norway. If I expand beyond my current fleets, the Kriegsmarine forces there would be strong candidates (along with the French who could fight both the Brits and the Axis!).

      Cheers
