I always kinda wondered why more escort carriers wern't sunk in the atlantic. The submarine is a deadly enemy of these little flat tops...why didn't the u-boats attack them much? or sink more? The only answer i could think of was 1. the freighters and tankers were more of a priority (but would the u-boat captains pass up a shot at one?) 2. The carriers were well escorted (however the tankers and freighters were also well guarded and they were still being sunk up until 1945.) Does anyone else know anything?
