A War Time, c.1941 Signed Kreigsmarine Knight's Cross Winner Photo; Endrass

Black and white photo, matte finish, obverse signed, name tagline in the bottom right corner inscribed "Kapitänleutnant ENDRASS", reverse with postcard-style backer, manufactured by Hoffmann Munich, inscription in orange pencil, 90 mm x 139 mm, surface spotting, extremely fine.Footnote: Lieutenant Engelbert Endrass (March 2, 1911 – December 21, 1941) was a German U-boat commander in the Second World War. He commanded the Type VIIB U-boat U-46 and the Type VIIC U-567, sinking twenty-two ships on ten patrols, for a total of 118,528 tons of Allied shipping, to become the 23rd highest scoring U-Boat ace during the war. He was also a recipient of the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves. It was Germany's highest military decoration at the time of its presentation to Engelbert Endrass. In September 1941, Endrass left U-46, which would become a training vessel, and a month later took over U-567. On his second patrol he was killed on December 21, 1941, when U-567 was sunk with all hands by depth charges from the British sloop HMS Deptford and corvette HMS Samphire, northeast of the Azores.
