    WWI, the Germans lost 178 U-boats, with almost 5,000 men killed, this equaled a casualty rate of over one out of 3. So, they went from a 1/3 loss rate to a 3/4 rate the next time around. Apparently, the Allied technology could, indeed, solve problems.

    Amazing pics, thanks for this. Takes a very special sort of person to serve on these things.

    I've been on board 2 decommissioned subs, and it's always clear how tough and well disciplined you'd have to be, especially for long periods of time.
