    The patrol was exceedingly successful and accounted for three warships and a tanker. She was allocated to the Red Star Line and renamed Belgenland. She was given a superstructure four decks in height and a third smokestack. Almost immediately the military turned the seaport into a German naval base.

    It is extremely rare to have a totally authentic Russian account, which has been superbly translated into English. At this time, many troops were fleeing from the Austrian and German fronts, joining the local Moscow garrison upon their arrival in the city. Later, passes were given to women with children and families. The comparatively shallow waters of the Baltic were less than ideal for submarine warfare.

    Many of these were successful and Korzh witnessed numerous engagements and sinkings of German shipping. His extensive second patrol sank two freighters and returned safely after suffering heavy depth charging and a very narrow escape. An air of lawlessness threatened the once orderly city. That's where his mother's younger brother and his wife and son lived. On hearing that, Trotsky specified that soldiers of the Red Army should wear a similar, red, star. The Woits set out from their house intending to reach Schwerin, a city northwest of Berlin.
