Preparing for my first voyage

I am Lieutenant jr. Jurgen Trompetespieler. While preparing to embark on my first patrol as a uboat commander I thought it best to record the experiences of myself and the crew of U-599.

It is March 1942 and the war in the Atlantic is in full swing withthe Americans now devoting their full attention to producing and shipping men and materials. My job will be to do what I can to stop them before reaching the British Isles. But first things first; the crew roster must be sorted out and provisions stowed.
