Official statistics[edit]

There is a heavy bias in this article, the author is simply arguing here —Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.209.25.26 (talk) 20:34, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Original research and analysis[edit]

There sure is a lot of unsourced original research and analysis here. It makes sense, and I believe it, but it really needs to be attributed to something other than the over-active imagination of some WP editor. Rees11 (talk) 18:07, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Post-mortem books[edit]

How is it possible for a man who died in 1979 to have authored books in 1999 and 2006? Rees11 (talk) 18:11, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Quite possible mate, quite possible. For example, we can buy fresh editions of Newton's Principia Matematica despite his death in 1727...happily.--Darius (talk) 23:52, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Yes but he didn't author it in the years it was published, authoring! is writing, therefore the above poster is correct, it was not possible to author them in 1999 and 2006.188.220.186.57 (talk) 18:16, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Where was the sub?[edit]

In the Wikipedia article on U-530, the question is raised where was the sub for more than 2 months? U-530 surrendered in Argentina on July 10, more than a month before U-977. The article noted it did not take that long (May 5-July 10, 65 days) to cross the Atlantic in an U-boat.

How long would it have taken to get over the Atlantic? According to the above article, U-530 traveled from the Caribbean to France in 1943-1944 in 55 days (December 29, 1943 to February 22, 1944).

If a final post-war voyage of 65 days raises a question about where U-530 was, U-977's whereabouts for 103 days post-war seems like a significant issue. Its colleague, U-530, crossed the ocean in 55 days under war conditions. That would leave a month and a half (48 days) of unaccounted-for-time.

The article speaks disparagingly of theories the U-boat went to Antarctica. Yet the U-boat must have been somewhere. Perhaps it was just cruising very slowly (half speed). Until some authority is brought to bear on the point, it may not be reasonable to be skeptical of unorthodox ideas. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.94.241.240 (talk) 00:59, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
