    Welcome aboard mate! Its nice to see that you also read "Shooting the War" among other great books. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I met all the survivors of U 181, which Giese was second watch officer on.

    Did you know that at least 4 Knights Cross Recipients served on that Uboat at the same time! There were also a few more KC Recipients on that Uboat but at other times.

    As soon as things can be ncoordinated between Otto and myself, there will be a nice section on this site with many photos of U 181 and crewmembers. I also will have service records and other info as I get it from the vets.

    Anyway, I hope to see you here often and glad you like the site too. Take care--Carl. ;) [​IMG]

    Most accounts from non-expert witnesses contain errors. I give Sajer's story the benefit of the doubt, an honest attempt to put memories to paper. In combat, any tank shooting at you looks like a Konigstiger. [​IMG]

    A true story, a coworker of mine, after being fired upon, stated that the assailants weapon was a 12 gauge. Only a .22 rifle was found at the scene, later proved to be the suspects weapon. :D
