Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Commander Waldemar Kophamel (August 16, 1880 - November 4, 1934) was a successful and highly decorated German U-boat commander in the Kaiserliche Marine during World War I.In his time as commander of U-35 and U-140 he succeeded in sinking 54 ships for a total tonnage of 148,852 gross register tons (GRT).U-boat is the anglicized version of the German word U-Boot [ˈuːboːt] ( listen), itself an abbreviation of Unterseeboot (undersea boat), and refers to military submarines operated by Germany, particularly in World War I and World War II. Although in theory U-boats could have been useful fleet weapons against enemy naval warships, in practice they were most effectively used in an economic warfare role (commerce raiding), enforcing a naval blockade against enemy shipping. The primary targets of the U-boat campaigns in both wars were the merchant convoys bringing supplies from Canada, the British Empire and the United States to the islands of Great Britain. Austrian submarines of World War I were also known as U-boats.
