Our monthly Magazine is called the KTB after the KriegsTageBuch (war log book) carried aboard all German U-boats. Our KTB Magazine is used extensively by many groups and is kept as permanent history in many archives:

  • National Archives – Washington DC
  • U-Boat Archive – Germany
  • Brazilian Navy Archives – Rio de Janeiro
  • Museum of Science & Industry – Chicago
  • US Naval Submarine League – USA
  • USS NAUTILUS Memorial – Groton
  • US Sub Vets of WW II – USA
  • US Navy Historical Center – Washington DC
  • Italian Submarine Archives – Milano
  • USS SILVERSIDES Memorial – Michigan
  • Library of Congress – Washington DC

This is the only Magazine of its kind in the world – shouldn’t it be coming to you? The stories in our KTB Magazine come right from the memories of the men who made this history – not from a researcher or librarian, but directly from the men who waged the Battle of the Atlantic.


…and be in Membership with these men of history – and many more. There are currently more than 7,700 Members in over 76 countries.

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!
