KRIEGSMARINE ITALY 1943

Post by mngray » 16 Jan 2003 23:08

Does anybody know the command structure of the Kriegsmarine in Itlay in Aug/Sept 1943? Does anybody know what ships/boats/e-boat flotillas etc were based in which naval bases in Italy at that time? Any clues on any potential source-books.

Thanks

MNG

Interesting question. I am sure that U-boots operating in Mediterranean were based in La Spezia.
