The True Story of the U-Boat That Escaped to Argentina

When it was first published in 1953, opinions were sharply divided between those who deplored the apparent extolling of a vicious form of warfare, and this who found in Heinz Schaeffer's account a revealing picture of the German Navy s training and methods. U-Boat 977 was the German submarine that escaped to Argentina at the end of World War Two. This epic journey started from Bergen in Norway, where in April 1945 it was temporarily based, and took three and a half months to complete. The final part of U-Boat 977 is Schaeffer's account of the journey to Argentina and lays to rest some of the more fanciful sorties that followed its arrival.
