History

The 8th Flotilla was founded in June 1941 under the command of Kptlt. Wilhelm Schulz, which also commanded at this time the 6th Flotilla in Danzig. In the last months of war some flotilla boats were in combat against the Soviet Navy in the Baltic.

Its history ended in January 1945, when the flotilla was disbanded.
