** First they hit a three-week storm. Then they fall afoul of a destroyer. [[spoiler:Then destroyers with ASDIC. Then aircraft with radar. Then their hydroplanes break, nearly sinking them. Then, after frantic repairs and just managing to resurface the boat before they are crushed/drowned/suffocated, they are sunk in port by an air-raid.]]

** To be fair, the chief of the watch was ''pissed'' and demanded to know the culprit in no uncertain terms. Werner, mortally embarrassed, beat it out of the torpedo room, after which you got a SmashCut, so you never really knew if he found out who did it or what was done to them.

** [[spoiler:The airstrike depicted at the end of the movie could not have taken place at that point in time late 1941.RAF planes would not have risked a low flying air raid against a heavily defended german naval base in 1941.The airstrikes that did take place almost always were against surface ships and from a highter altitude to avoid flak.This kind of air raid was more likely towards the end of the war.Unsurprisingly the real U-96 was sunk by an air raid but right at the end of the war.]]

** This may well be caused by the fact that the U-Boat service had to receive so many replacement (to replenish casualties they sustained which was growing to such massive amount by 1943), as the service loses men (especially old experienced ones) they will tend to get replaced by newer ones that are either heavily indoctrinated (due to being young enough to have gone through the Hitler Youth in the 1930s for instance) or more entrenched with the Nazi ideology. During the earlier part of the war, they probably are as apolitical as the other Kriegsmarine aspect, but as the staggering casualties mount, they get slowly refilled with men who are more aligned with the Nazi.
