Would Have Hated to Have Been in Charge of Valve Maintenance on That Boat

Photos from the interior of a Great War German Submarine.

Given the cramped conditions and small crews, it's a safe bet that most of the maintenance of the boats was done by sandcrabs between cruises.

(Sort of like what happens with the little crappy ships that the Navy is buying today.)

Have you read the Otto Prohaska books? Fiction, yes, but still well done. There are only 3, so it isn't a bookshelf worth of O'Brian books to slog through.

Otto is an officer in the Austro Hungarian navy.
