Rate this:
Reaction to the publication of the hardcover edition to this book in 1997 was immediate and overwhelming with demand quickly overtaking the limited stock available. Now a paperback edition has been printed that easily matches the high quality of the original but costs much less. Designed for visual impact, the volume provides a brutally realistic portrait of U-boat life during a critical phase of World War II in the Atlantic. It includes some two hundred and fifty illustrations, half in color and many with full-page spreads, of a fascinating combination of photographs, paintings, and drawings that brilliantly convey the U-boat experience -- and help explain the mystique of the German submariner that persists to this day.
