To verify this hypothesis unpublished Italian, German and Spanish primary sources have been consulted. From information gathered from these sources, it can be seen that Italian submarine patrols in the waters of the Canary Islands were largely unfruitful, but that their main ports concentrated most of the Italian vessels that had taken refuge in the eastern Atlantic and that their potential for supplying Italian submarines deployed in the south Atlantic did not go unnoticed.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/47020||ISSN:||0025-3359||DOI:||10.1080/00253359.2014.901701||Source:||Mariners Mirror[ISSN 0025-3359],v. 100, p. 186-197|
