RAIDER ATLANTIS * - 7 PAGES

8)ARCHIVAL FOOTAGE *



In his long career Atlantis used innumerable and ingenious disguises to catch its victims by surprise. ATLANTIS did an extraordinary journey, sailed for almost two years without returning to Germany, 161,000 km in 602 days, went to the Pacific Ocean and operated in the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans, sank 22 merchant ships with 144,000 tons until being sunk on 11 November 1941 by the British cruiser Devonshire, south of St. Helena Island. It was commanded by Sea Captain and War Bernard Rogge, a gentleman of the sea, made a point of saving the passengers and crew of the sunken ships and dined with the captains of these ships in long conversations about the war, the life, the families and the History. The passengers and crew that he captured were sent to Germany by captured ships, with very few losses.
