As new hardback in slipcase,with 5 folding diagrams in a seperate folder'The U-Boat War in the Alantic diagrams 1-32'.After WW2,Fregattenkapitan Gunter Hessler (a son in law of Donitz) was given free access to the war diaries and other primary sources of the German Navy to write a history and analysis of the U-Boat offensive in the Alantic.It covered many aspects such as general stratategy,signals intelligence,tactics and weapons,adopting a largely German veiwpoint.It also investigated Allied countermeasures and the responce of the U-Boat Command.Written at the request of the Admiralty,the 3-volume work was classified material never availabe to the general public. This facsimile edition of the volumes,with a fresh introduction by Lt Cdr Andrew Withers,is a valuable addition to the published history of the war,and contains information available nowhere else.Corrections and explanations have been added to the original text-incidents puzzling Hessler can be better understood,for example,now that we have the full story of British Intelligence Work in deciphering German Signals.For students of military,naval or intelligence history The U-Boat War in the Alantic is a unique account,not least because the many charts and diagrams allow the record of each U-Boat to be traced,including its deployment on any particular day.
