PETER HANSEN (251-1987)
Kriegsmarine, U-Bootwaffe …Abwehr
|PETER HANSEN was an officer in the U-Bootwaffe and made patrols aboard U-226 but during one action, he was shot up quite badly and spent the rest of the war on shore – but he was utilized quite heavily by the Abwehr in various functions. He personally knew Großadmiral Karl Dönitz and Admiral Wilhelm Canaris. He is an incredible source of previously unknown history of the U-Boat war and we run this formerly unknown and/or Secret information monthly in the “PETER’s PERISCOPE” section of our KTB Magazine.
PETER is a solid supporting Member of Sharkhunters and a good friend. The historical information that he adds to our files and to our KTB Magazine is priceless.
|PETER is now a well respected international author. His first book “Execution for Duty” covers the story of Oskar Kusch, a U-Boat Skipper who was court-martialled and executed by firing squad – because he removed Hitler’s photo from his U-Boat!|
