This photo gallery attempts to capture the epic struggle of the U-boat force during the Battle of the Atlantic. During the war, German U-boats sent over 2900 ships and 14 million tons of allied shipping to the bottom of the sea, nearly cutting off the vital supplies of food, fuel and raw materials of Great Britain.

The USS Reuben James torpedoed in the early morning hours of October 31, 1941. 115 of her 160 crew perished, including all officers. She was escorting convoy HX-156 when the incident occurred. Mistakenly identified as a British destroyer, she was attacked by KL Erich Topp of U-552. Although not the first US ship to be torpedoed before the war, the Reuben James was the first one sunk.
