U-505 | On-Line Activities

At the height of World War II, the U.S. Navy captured a German U-boat submarine prowling off the waters of Africa. The American efforts to capture the U-505, and the German struggle to prevail instead, illuminate the human experience of duty, courage, and survival during wartime. This site features two games and an interactive timeline about that fateful day: * Find the U-505: As an American sailor, use cutting-edge (for 1944) technologies to track down the U-boat. * Command the U-505: As skipper of the U-505, use your wits to attack the Americans and evade capture. * Capture! An interactive timeline featuring oral histories by the men who where there.
