Gibraltar[edit]

Does anyone know if the drama during the Gibraltar dash depicted in the movie Das Boot, or something similar really happened to this submarine? Is it in the novel and if yes, are there any differences from the movie version of the event? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.137.118.241 (talk) 13:48, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Yes, it is in the novel. It's a long time since I read it, so I can't really remember if there were any big differences on that part, I can't remember any. Andrimner (talk) 20:00, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
According to the german wikipedia article the story with Gibraltar is real and happened on the 7th patrol. Here the english article differs a lot from the german. Obviously on this patrol there was a lot of confusion with the assignment to several battle groupings, which may be the cause for different historic views. However, Mr.Buchheim (the war correspondent, who wrote the book) published another book with his pictures and gave several interviews, describing the backgrounds. So, the general events depocted in the book and the movie are fairly accurate, only that the real boat wasn't destroyed at the end of this patrol. The movie is close to the book, but director Petersen had another intention than Buchheim. Buchheim never really was satisfied with the movie. There are a lots of details obviously not real but added for drama. The book is closest to reality, no wonder, Buchheim WAS there, even if didn't intend to write a documentary. His focus mainly is on the "sicial" aspect: life of a bunch of men under extreme pressure in a submarine. The movie is a lot more about cruelty and senselessness of war in great detail (no wonder the director's cut is several hours long). BTW: The stories in the subsequent novels are along reality as well. --79.229.159.9 (talk) 21:13, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Deaths[edit]

Final sinking has double asterisks and is noted as "all hands lost", but the table says 0 deaths and the intro also mentions no loss of life. A knowledgeable editor should clarify this contradiction, please. -- Veggies (talk) 21:08, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
