Sinking of U-22

A Breakthrough for the Allies

Pictured above is the Kriegsmarines’ U-33 U-boat, which was forced to surface while engaged with the HMS Gleaner, a British minesweeper. As a result, the Allies confiscated a number of secret Enigma rotors, later used by codebreakers at Bletchley Park to crack German ciphers.

If you’re interested in World War II and historical fiction, be sure to check out my novels: The Torch Betrayal, available now by clicking here, and my upcoming sequel The Ultra Betrayal, releasing on June 9th.

    I have written a book “The Time of the Canton” that tells the story of the capture of U-110 which gave the first in tact Enigma machine. It tells to story of Capt. Lemp the skipper of U-30 and U-110. It deals with the sinking of the Swedish ship Canton off the coast of Ireland, and the rescue of the crew.
