While commanding U-960, Heinrich had two war patrols in the Arctic Sea, operating against the Murmansk Convoys, two more in the North Atlantic.  During his war patrols, he sank five ships including a Soviet minesweeper, a Liberty Ships (SS SUMNER I. KIMBALL) named for the founder of the United States Coast Guard - and the American destroyer USS ELLYSON.

The most remarkable feat during Günther Heinrich's time commanding U-960 was the fact that this was THE LAST German U-Boat to successfully transit the "Gates of Hell".....the Straits of Gibraltar.  All other German U-Boats making this attempt after U-960 were either destroyed or driven back.
