Verschollen - World War I U-Boat Losses by Dwight R Messimer.


Verschollen - World War I U-Boat Losses by Dwight R Messimer.

Until now, finding reliable information on U­boats lost during World War I required fluency in German and a great deal of time. Not only was little information available in English, but German sources were also difficult to track down and provided the barest of facts. Long in the making, this new reference fills the needs of both researchers looking for accounts of lost submarines and readers who enjoy action and adventure stories. It examines in detail each of the 203 U-boats lost during the war. Fluent in German and at home in war archives, Dwight Messimer offers for the first time individual narratives of the men who survived the sinking of their boats, including the dramatic stories of several who escaped from sunken wrecks, and one who managed to bailout as his submarine plunged past the one-hundred-foot mark. For boats listed as verschollen, or lost with­out a trace, the author includes available expla­nations for what happened, and when they con­flict he analyzes them for accu.........

 During a patrol on 6th July 1918, Christiansen spotted a British submarine on the surface of the Thames Estuary. He immediately turned and put his Hansa-Brandenburg W.29 floatplane into an attacking dive, raking the submarine C.25 with machine gun fire, killing the captain and five other crewmen. This victory was added to his personal tally, bringing his score to 13 kills by the end of the war, even though the submarine managed to limp back to safety. Christiansen survived the war and went on to work as a pilot for the Dornier company, notably flying the giant Dornier Do.X on its inaugural flight to New York in 1930. He died in 1972, aged 93.

 Looking slightly the worse for wear after her journey south to the Falkland Islands in 1982, the P&O cruise liner <i>Canberra</i>, requisitioned as a troop carrier at the outbreak of the conflict, is shown in the midst of an attack by Argentine Mirage aircraft in San Carlos Water during May.  Believed by the Argentine pilots to be a hospital ship, <i>Canberra</i> herself was never targeted, but her proximity to other ships of the British task force meant that she was constantly in danger.
