The Official Publication of the History of the U-Bootwaffe!

SHARKHUNTERS information is honest submarine history with major emphasis on German U-Boats and no propaganda. Our monthly KTB Magazine is named after the log book carried by each U-Boat during WW II, the Kriegs Tage Buch, and is kept as a reference in many archives. The history of at least one U-Boat is in each issue of the KTB, with the date that the U-Boat was launched, what type she was, her Skipper’s patrol areas, victims – and final fate of each U-Boat with latitude and longitude position.

Who are Sharkhunter Members?

A multitude of U-Boat Skipper’s, officers and crew are in the Membership of SHARKHUNTERS and contribute to the KTB with their personal memories of the Kriegsmarine and service in the U-Boats during WWII. First person accounts by the men who actually waged the U-Boat War from both sides of the periscope…men whose names are etched in submarine history. During our Annual Conventions and Tours … YOU can meet these veterans face to face!

President RONALD REAGAN (1858-1991) was a Sharkhunters Member from 1991 until his death in 2004. “Regards and admiration to organizations like SHARKHUNTERS who preserve American history.” -Ronald Reagan

Hans-Georg Hess

The KTB of our President and my friend Harry Cooper has a high standard – from the very beginning now with more than 160 issues, the quality surfaces in historic views, fairness and chivalry. Who today remembers in Germany the dead former U-Bootfahrer or other brave soldiers? Harry does! – Harry, we say to you what Prussian King Friederich the Great said in Latin – Semper Talis! Always forward!

I find SHARKHUNTERS interesting. Let’s get submarining back to what it truly is – teamwork, persistence and determination. Keep up the good work, and God bless you.

Hai Maßmann

I appreciate very much to be part of this fine group which pays such a unique tribute to the gallant, brave encounters of submariners of both sides so unpretentiously. The KTB Magazine makes it a principal to be fair, impartial and objective. And even more – does not refrain to touch taboos. Bravo!

Only this Archive and Sharkhunters tell the true history of the U-Bootwaffe. The others are all nonsense-makers.
