The U-862 was one of four German submarines sent to serve in the Indian and Pacific Oceans in World War II at the request of the Japanese. It was the only one that made it to Australian waters, where it instigated the largest submarine hunt ever in those waters. It sank seven merchant ships and shot down two aircraft before it surrendered in Singapore at the end of the war. This study is based on official records in Germany, Britain, North America and Australia and on interviews with surviving German crew and Allied navy and air crew.
