The fluctuating fortunes of the German submarine war in World War II, the successes gained, the losses and bitter disappointments caused by Allied countermeasures, have rarely been so vividly described as in this classic tale of U-boat warfare. Tapping on the experiences of the boat commanders, chief engineers, and others who served, the author, himself a veteran of the German Navy, chronicles combat beneath the waves from the earliest exploits through the final days of 1945. Included are chapters on U-boat aces Muetzelburg and Lueth, U-74 and the Bismarck, the Caribbean theater, the Laconia incident, Doenitz and the Walter U-boat, daring escapes, and the break-up of the U-boat force. First published in 1957, this illustrated volume has entertained and informed a generation of U-boat enthusiasts. 42 photographs. Paperback. 6 x 9 inches.
