With the international success of the classic film Das Boot, U-96 is arguably the most famous of all German U-boats. Here is the true story of U-96, and its legendary commander Heinrich Lehmann-Willenbrock. In continuous combat from September 1940 to March 1945, follow the crew of U-96 from their bases in Kiel, Germany, as well as Lorient and St. Nazaire on the west coast of France, to intense combat against Allied shipping. During eleven combat patrols in the North Atlantic under Lehmann-Willenbrock, U-96 sank twenty-four Allied ships, eventually earning its commander the Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves. One of their patrols was documented by war correspondent Lothar-Günther Buchheim, which was later novelized and made into the film Das Boot. This biography of  Heinrich Lehmann-Willenbrock, and history of U-96 is based on the WWII captain’s log as well as the recollections of crewmembers.[AuthorName]By (author) Luc Braeuer[/AuthorName][AuthorBio]Luc Braeuer, born in Paris in 1970, is a computer engineer and officer in the reserve.
