Trivia

The U-20 set was the original U-96 set used in Das Boot (1981). The Type U-19 of World War I and Type VIIC of World War II had similar internal dimensions. See more »

Goofs

The U-20 is shown to have four forward torpedo tube doors. However, it should only have had two as the Type U-19 only had two torpedo tubes; the interior correctly contains two torpedo tubes. See more »

Crazy Credits

Adrian Topol's character name is pronounced Voegele in the German dialogue and is spelled this way in the accompanying English subtitles. However in the credits it is spelled Vogele. Correct German spelling uses either "ö" (o with an umlaut) or else "oe". See more »

pretty good

If you want the best info on it read the book Dead Wake. excellent in the details. makes you think you where on it with the detail info on passengers. used the war diary from the german sub commander and he reviewed the books and pics from the sinking. he obtained some very recent info from the British secret service who knew where the sub was but didint tell the ship. a sad bunch of unfortunate circumstances.
