February 17th, 1945

Journal,

 

I’ve settled into a routine serving out here in Prussia, on the edge of the Baltic Sea. Just yesterday, I myself fired on a ship and sank it. My boat has not had many hits, but this mission was successful. Not long ago, my aunt was traveling on a German merchant marine ship through the Baltic Sea when it was sunk by the Russians. Hundreds of women and children were killed, my aunt included. It felt good to sink one of the Russian ships in return. The Russians have very few countermeasures against our U-boats. They are not much of a Navy. If the war was fought only at sea, we might have a chance of winning. I am not sure how the rest of our forces are doing in this war. I just hope it is over soon.
