The steel coffins was the name given to the U-boats of the Kriegsmarine by their own crews. Their fatalistic view of the war was certainly justified; it is estimated that seventy-five per cent of the 39,000 men who sailed in the U-boat fleet paid the ultimate price as the tide of war turned inexorably against Hitler’s Germany.
This is the illustrated history

Overview

The steel coffins was the name given to the U-boats of the Kriegsmarine by their own crews. Their fatalistic view of the war was certainly justified; it is estimated that seventy-five per cent of the 39,000 men who sailed in the U-boat fleet paid the ultimate price as the tide of war turned inexorably against Hitler’s Germany.
This is the illustrated history of the U-boat war from the perspective of the men who sailed into battle in the service of the Third Reich. Drawing heavily on the accounts of the last remaining survivors, ‘Wolf Pack’ traces the grim story of the rise and fall of the grey wolves. The memories of the brief days of the “happy times” of superiority and success were soon replaced by the stark terror of the enfolding nightmare as the realisation dawned that the hunters had become the hunted.

Oh, um, hello. You probably don't know me, but I'm Karma's sister. I drop in every now and then. I came to give you this. *she paws a charm connected to a necklace forward.* I know the Evil Within has you in its sights, and this is a protection charm. Those with evil in their hearts cannot hurt the wearer of this necklace. *she pauses, blue eyes flickering to the side briefly.* Yes, I was with the kitnappers club. Only because I...I had love there. *she looks down, then back up.* But anyways. I can assure you I only have the best of intentions. And Karma...he's a good cat. He just doesn't realize it. But I have a warning for you;his loyalty is his strength, yet his weakness. He's still loyal to Evil Within. *without another word she backs out, then disappears into the night.*
