Kapitän Loewe was born 3 January 1909 in Kiel and he was in the Naval Class 1928.  His one and only U-Boat command was U-505, but he was successful with that boat, sinking some 8 ships.  After several war patrols in distant waters, Loewe was promoted and command of the boat was turned over to another Skipper.

Captain Loewe was quite helpful to Sharkhunters, giving us many photographs and a great deal of information about the war patrols of U-505, the only enemy Man-O-War captured on the high seas by the U.S. Navy since the War of 1812.  The boat is now on display in Chicago.

Captain Loewe began his 'Eternal Patrol' 18 December 1984.
