IRON COFFINS: A Personal Account of the German U-Boat Battles of WWII, by U-Boat Commander Herbert Werner. An emotional rollercoaster, this is ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING ACCOUNTS OF SUBMARINE WARFARE IN PRINT.--CLEARANCE SALE--

Click to EnlargeBy Herbert Warner, U-Boat Commander. After nearly strangling England in 1941-42, German U-Boat was crushed by the Allies in 1943-45, and 28,000 out of 39,000 men in German subs disappeared beneath the waves. An emotional rollercoaster, this is one of the most exciting accounts of submarine warfare in print, and equal in intensity to the famed movie Das Boot.

The Battle of the Atlantic was one of the most savage and strategically significant campaigns of World War II. Herbert A. Werner, one of the few surviving German U-boat commanders, served on five submarines from 1941 to 1945. From the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, from the English Channel to the North Sea, he takes the reader with him through the triumphant years of 1941 and 1942, when German U-boats nearly strangled England, to the apocalyptic final years of destruction, disillusionment, and defeat.

Page for page, this is one of the most exciting accounts of submarine warfare and what it was like aboard German U-boats that we are likely to be given. Poignant and first-rate.___Publishers Weekly

"[Werner's] vivid and intensely personal account of the hardships and horrors of U-boat life is well written and timely, much more than a military memoir with its message of the futility of war and the insanity of mass destruction and murder. Iron Coffins deserves a wide audience."___Library Journal
