I just broke my personal record with a haul of 132000 tons, including 4 more carriers and a Brooklyn cruiser. My last action was against a mid-atlantic convoy where I sank a large merchant and a 24000 ton troop carrier, but was gutted to then happen across an ailing HMT Aquitania with no torpedoes left. I tailed her for a while but she sank before the weather allowed me the opportunity to fire my 6 remaining 105mm shells into her in the hope of getting the credit. It was a lengthy patrol too- 34 days.

Having just watched the remake of 'Das Boot' I have now adopted the von Reinhartz technique for avoiding destroyers when I disable a carrier that refuses to sink :03:




However I have discovered during my last mission that this strategy only works at night- I have just executed the maneouvre in daylight and the destroyers called in air support which ended up sinking the carrier while I was hiding under it!

U-53 VII-B Flotilla Wegener
 
Start date 8/1/39 Konisgsberg
Training- successfully sank all target ships as ordered. Returned to base. They've updated our Hydrophones, but not all the parts were available causing a delay. My men are eager to go to war but most are too green to realize.

Start date 9/7/39 War is here, the men are filled with excitement. Our orders are to patrol AO98 then transfer to Kiel. We do so and sink one Polish destroyer. On the way back to Kiel we find nothing.

Start date 10/3/39 (current now). Our orders are to patrol BE96. A very long first 'real' patrol that will turn these remaining boys into men.
It has been nearly three weeks at sea now and only 1 tramp steamer to our name early on in the Nord sea. There have been only a few contacts since then and very bad weather has caused the enemy to escape. As we approach our patrol grid finally here on 10/20/39 my crew is getting fatigued and bored. It is as if the sea is void of any ships. A full load of torpedoes constantly reminds the crew. Fuel is around 70%. I hope we find something soon to restore confidence.
