The Submarine with the Strangest Flag Ever Flown?

Military History

Plunging into the frigid waters south of Iceland on the hunt to intercept Allied Convoy HX1 145, the crew of U-570, helmed by Kapitänleutnant Hans-Joachim Rahmlow, found themselves caught in a living nightmare. The German sailors faced a barrage of malfunctions: poorly calibrated diesel engines that sent shudders through the sub’s steel spine, a broken air compressor that suffused their cramped quarters with fetid air, and dead hydrophones that left them as good as blind in the abyssal depths.
