Wreck of U-boat in Hitler's 'Lost Fleet' Found in the Black Sea, the U-23


From the February 3, 2019, Ahual  "World War II submarine from Hitler's 'Lost Fleet' found in the Black Sea."

It was the U-23 found 40 meters deep and 4 kilometers off Agra.  It was one of six German submarine sent to attack Soviet ships in the Black Sea.  The U-20 was found off Turkey in 2008.

These submarines were carried some 2000 miles overland to get to the Black Sea.  In two years time they sank dozens of Soviet ships. losing three of their number.  At first they were stationed in Romania until August 1944 when that country changed sides.  The three remaining subs were then stranded.
