  4. Feral .... If you or your readers ever get to Chicago, I highly recommend a visit to the U-505 at The Museum of Science and Industry. The 505 was captured at sea by a US Navy task force a couple days prior to D-Day. The capture provided a wealth of materials, including acoustic homing torpedoes and two enigma code machines.

  6. Thanks guys. I've been inside the U-505. I went while attending the 50th anniversary event of D-Day. A friend of mine and I had driven up from Alabama. While there we met a a veteran who was the Chief Engineer on the USS Chatelain. He was pointing at a video monitor and telling his wife "that is me right there". He was the second man in from the boarding party. He was very nice and shared several stories about the capture. We got our photo made with him in front of the sub. Uber kuhl is all I can say!
