The LACONIA Incident!
Sharkhunters Member WILLIE GRAP (213-1986) served as a crewmember of U-506 for many patrols, including the one on which they, along with many other German & Italian submarines, raced to aid U-156 (Hartenstein) after the sinking of the LACONIA. What was it like for a U-boat designed to carry 55 men at most to have nearly 200 on board, including women and children? WILLIE tells about it.
U-Boat Up the Mississippi?
Did any German U-boats go up the Mississippi River at any time during the war? Many rumors have been told, disputed and told again. Hear what WILLIE has to say about it – fact right from the guy who was there! This is more great first-person history.
