From the beginning of the war Carl-August Landfermann served only in some reserve courses. After a few months in a Navy anti aircraft unit since October 1939, he changed in March 1940 to the U-boat force.

After 5 months on U-146 he became in March 1941 the leading engineer (LI) of U-38, which he left in January 1942 after 3 patrols.



The new position for Karl-August Landfermann was on the newly commissioned U-181 under the command of the famous Kptlt. Wolfgang Lüth. He took part in the incredible 205 day patrol of U-181 in summer 1943 and supported the great successes of the boat with great technical achievements. Two weeks after returning from that patrol he got the Knights Cross



From October 1944 he was an instructor in the Agru-Front (Ausbildungsgruppe Front = training group front) where the new U-boats received their technical and dive training. After the war he spent some 4 months in captivity.
