"The German Navy was a force to be reckoned with during World War II (WWII). German submarines or unterwasser boats (U-boats) were on a mission to destroy merchant vessels carrying supplies to allied forces in order to hinder their war efforts. Aided by intelligence reports on the location, destination, and speed of merchant vessels, the U-boats would search the seas for victims.

Sometimes they were organized into so-called "wolf packs" and hunted in North Atlantic waters in groups. Other times, in geographically spread out regions where wolf packs were not feasible, a U-boat would hunt by itself…"

Thanks for sharing.

I wasn't aware of this one, and the attack on that small convoy, though I know there were a lot of them off the US Eastern Seaboard during the war.

I was also surprised to see one of the escort vessels was a reverse-lend-lease, Flower class corvette transferred to the USN from the UK. I didn't know that ever occurred.
