Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Weather Station Kurt (Wetter-Funkgerät Land-26) was a fully automated weather station erected by a German U-boat crew in Northern Labrador, Newfoundland in October 1943. The installation was the only armed German military operation on land in North America during the Second World War.Weather in the Northern Hemisphere predominantly moves from west to east. This gave the Allies an important advantage. The Allied network of weather stations in North America, Greenland and Iceland allowed the Allies to make more accurate weather forecasts than the Germans. German meteorologists had weather reports sent by U-boats and weather ships, such as the Lauenburg, operating in the North Atlantic. They also had reports from clandestine weather stations in remote parts of the Arctic and readings collected over the Atlantic by specially equipped weather aircraft.
