Korvettenkapitän REINHARD HARDEGEN (102-1985), Sharkhunters Member since 1985, sank the first ship in American waters during Operation Paukenschlag (Drumbeat) and so is known as the Drumbeater, and he is also the only surviving Drumbeat Skipper.
Did he really see New York City from his bridge? What did he think of Großadmiral Dönitz? What did he think of his fellow Skippers? What makes a good submarine Skipper? These questions and others are answered as Captain Hardegen relives his memories of his time in World War II.
