U-505 is a German Type IXC U-boat built for N**i Germany's Kriegsmarine during World War II. She was captured by the U.S. Navy on June 4, 1944.In her uniquely unlucky career with the Kriegsmarine, she had the distinction of being the "most heavily damaged U-boat to successfully return to port" in World War II (on her fourth patrol) and the only submarine in which a commanding officer took his own life in combat conditions (on her tenth patrol, following six botched patrols).One of six U-boats that were captured by Allied forces during World War II, U-505 was the first warship captured by U.S.
