I found this on U-boat.net, Fascinating, and look at what a depth charge can do

I'm amazed even 6 guys survived.

Has anyone seen NOVA's 2-hour program, "Hitler's Lost Sub"? It's a superb program, chronicling the discovery and exploration of a Type IX wreck off the New Jersey coast from the late 1980's to about 2000. The sub, as I recall, exhibits a bit less damage, near the base of the tower. It was attributed to a circular-run eel, since the boat wasn't under ASW attack when it sank. There's a book out about the whole exploit, but I can't remember the title.
