U-BOAT 352 DIVER Exclusive Olympus Dive Center Distinctive Specialty

The U-Boat 352 Diver Distinctive Specialty with OLYMPUS DIVE CENTER

U352 History & Knowlege Workshop & U352 Dive

In 1942, Operation "Drumbeat" saw multiple U-Boats right off the American Eastern Seaboard, where they wrought havoc on shipping so badly that victory during the war was in doubt. The U-352 was part of the 2nd wave of those boats. This U-352 Distinctive Diver Specialty, available only at Olympus Dive Center, tells the story of not just the fate of U-352, but of her life and her crew in the broader context of WWII.  U-Boat development, design, layout and employment are covered in some detail, as is her loss in May 1942.
