Oh I get it - you think the Germans were all set on a total war economy and going all out with the maximum production they already could for U-boats.

It means this is about U-boats and I am not, it would seem, supposed to bring aircraft into the discussion.
Somehow I cannot find comfort in the idea that contemporary planners got it all wrong to be concerned about German capabilities and that it was never really a close run thing. The Germans simply had not a chance.

So all the people who were concerned about winning the U-boat war should have really been more relaxed because it was evidently a foregone conclusion that the Allies would win it.

That is your view - you want to complain that you have kept pointing things out - my reciprocal take you see as a negative whiles yours is a positive. I doubt this is going to be helpful.
