Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. German submarine U-42 was a Type IXA U-boat of the German Kriegsmarine that operated during World War II. U-42 was ordered by the Kriegsmarine on 21 November 1936. Her keel was laid down on 21 December 1937 by AG Weser of Bremen as Werk 947. She was launched on 16 February 1939 and commissioned on 15 July 1939 with Kapitänleutnant Rolf Dau in command of the vessel. U-42 had a very short career, being sunk while still on her first war patrol. During her service with the German Kriegsmarine, U-42 conducted only one training patrol and one war patrol, during which she damaged one enemy vessel for a total of 4,803 GRT (Gross Register Tonnage). Both of U-42's patrols took part as a member of the 6. Unterseebootsflottille (6th Flotilla). On 13 October 1939, U-42 was sunk southwest of Ireland. Out of a crew of 46, 20 survived and 26 went down with the submarine.
