U-869's final fate discovered

Posted on: 23 Jul 2005 at 17:59.

A new article has been brought to my attention that does a very convincing job of explaining the actual and very elusive fate for the U-869. According to this she was sunk on Feb 11, 1945 by American destroyer escorts screening convoy CU 58.

More into can be found on the US Coast Guard site describing the incident.
