U-118 Surfacing Under Attack

U-118 Surfacing Under Attack

Here we see the Type XB Minelaying Submarine U-118 coming to the surface just as she was being attacked by a TBF Avenger being flown by Lieutenant Junior Grade W.S. Fowler, USNR of USS Bogue (CVE-9). Fowler drooped four Mk17 Mod 2 depth charges and was the second Avenger to attack. The submarine remained on the surface under heavy attack until she was finally blown in half, with the loss of all but sixteen of her crew.
