Volume three reveals the fate of the ninety-two German U-boats that passed through Lorient from August 1942 to August 1943.

GERMAN U-BOAT ACE ADALBERT SCHNEE

by Luc Braeuer

An account of the Patrols of U-201 in World War II. Few commanders symbolize the evolution of the German U-boat arm as does Adalbert "Adi" Schnee. In 1940, he commanded three Type II U-boats, U-6, U-60 and U-121, in which he registered his first successes in the Atlantic. From the beginning of 1941, he was appointed commander of U-201, the first Type VIIC U-boat allotted to I Flotilla. Seven patrols took him to the coasts of America and Africa, and he would receive the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves, with 15 ships sunk in mid-Atlantic. in May 1945 he carried out a combat mission in the latest Type XXI U-boat, U-2511.
