Hello, I have just posted a new British Interrogation Report for U-374 on my site at http://uboatarchive.net/U-374INT.htm On page 16 it has a description of the Marinestosstruppen Of course this description has to be taken with some reserve since the information is derived from German POWs but still it is an interesting perspective on this unusual unit.
