Default Friedrich Grade, Chief-Engineer of U-96 (Das Boot)

Our mission is to depict the U-Boat in the most historically accurate manner possible; not just the technology, but life on board. How are we working towards that goal? I'm glad you asked!
Last week we revealed that we've been collaborating with 104-year-old Friedrich Grade, ex chief-engineer of U-96 (the boat famously portrayed in the book 'Das Boot', and the 1981 film by the same name). He has been consulting with us on aspects of the boat, and life on board, which have been lost to time.

Our patrons have been aware of this exciting collaboration for some time; if you'd like to be the first to get similar insights, please consider becoming a patron at https://www.patreon.com/crushdepth

Also, don't forget to wishlist Crush Depth on steam https://store.steampowered.com/app/1...oat_Simulator/

He’s incredible at 104 - his responses are very witty and his memory is solid.

For non-German speakers, his quote above is: “Taking on such a project and consequently carrying it though is something I find admirable".
