NotesNotes: At the start of the war, Hitler's U-boats were directed solely against Merchant Shipping in an attempt to disrupt British trade. During January 1940 Hitler ordered his U-boats to attack any and all vessels in enemy waters. He issued warnings to neutral shipping that their safety could not be guaranteed. The British navy was initially overstretched, but soon began an intelligence campaign to predict where U-boats would be, in order to warn ships of their presence.
