1939-1945: Gripping U-Boat Combat in
the Icy North Atlantic
The most desperate battle of WW II is about to begin.
Between September 1939 and May 1945 Germany launched over 1,000 U-boats into
combat against the Allies. These submersible war machines prowled the stormy
seas, striking without warning as deadly phantoms of the deep.
As the commander of a U-boat you stalk the enemy in the icy
waves of the North Atlantic in a battle where the hunter quickly becomes the
hunted. Attempt to strangle shipping lanes and outmaneuver convoy escorts.
React as technological advances, such as sonar and radar, wreak havoc with the
mission of your submersible torpedo boat. Dive deep to avoid attacks from the
sky. Measure your success in tonnage sunk. As the sounds of depth charges and
twisting metal explode in your ears you will discover why the creators of Red
Baron and Aces Over Europe consider this their best simulation ever.
Exclusive video interviews with six leading German
U-boat Aces including Otto Kretschmer, Erick Topp and Reinhardt Hardegen.
Listen carefully as they divulge their strategies on how to successfully
command a U-boat.
Digitized speech available in English or German - a
simple toggle allows you to move between languages.

historical overview, WWII video library, submarine capabilities and tactics,
