The targets of this German U-boats were mostly merchant ships that transport supplies by the United States of America to Great Britain during the war.

The German U-boats became one of the most popular weapons of the 2nd World War because of the damage that it can do even to ships many times larger than its size. Although it was an effective war instrument it had technological drawbacks that were not addressed at that time.
