The World War II had its fair share of brave heroes and captured ships. Each boat has a story to tell and German submarine U-505 is no exception to this. This German submarine was secretly lurking along the West African coast to destroy the Allied and American warships. It's mission was interrupted owing to the attack of USS Chatelain ( USA warship ); the mass destruction stint of U-505 came to an end. Once, the war was over, U-505 was docked in Portsmouth Navy Yard; she was later donated to the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago. The relocation was a Herculean task, however it was successfully installed at the museum. Visitors can take a guided tour of it, the question and answer session at the end of the tour proves to be informative and interesting. U-505 is a perfect installation for all those who love history especially pertaining to World Wars.
