U 679

Postby Juha Tompuri on 14 Jan 2013 19:42

Hi,

Any information (or hints from where to look for info) about the U 679 would be appreciated.
Starting from it's armament.
I know about the earlier Soviet claim about sub-chaser MO-124 sinking it by depth charges, but it seems to be incorrect according to modern research.


Regards, Juha

Did you see this? http://www.forum-marinearchiv.de/smf/in ... n.html#new
Btw uboat.net have error about U 679 and their arriving in Libau.
Best source for boat is Ultra-Iterceptions (DEFE 3/475-499 and maybe 521-525)

Thank you very much igorr,

Yes, I had checked that forum, but somehow missed that thread there (maybe because being at the top of that U-Boat section there !)
Thanks for the hint.

Regards, Juha
