Churchill is famously quoted as saying that the only thing that really frightened him during WWII was the U-boat threat. Doenitz postulated that it came down to a matter of tonnage. If he could just consistently sink more Allied tonnage than the Allies could replace, Britain must starve and sue for peace.
Statistically however, the Germans only managed to achieve this goal about a half dozen scattered months prior to the focus of the war being shifted to the Soviet Union.
What would have been necessary to have made Doenitz's dream the world's nightmare?
