Huddled with a knot of shivering boatmates, we endure the anguish of young Rudy Wieser as his stricken boat, U 1195, slowly fills with freezing water and chlorine gas, and 19-year-old Franz Neumayr, who survived the sinking of U 1063 with 16 colleagues. Then there is the tragic quintet of British boats lost in these waters. We read of the last patrols of L24, M2, and M1, and, perhaps most poignantly, of HMS Swordfish.
