U-BOATS DESTROYED: German Submarine Losses in the World Wars. This book summarizes for each loss the U-boats pennant number, commanding officer, location, and whatever details are known about the loss.
In both world wars, the German navy suffered the loss of 1,000 submarines by air and seaborne attacks, by surface vessels and Allied submarines, in tough head-to-head encounters, chance meetings and after extensive chases and hunts. This book summarizes for each loss the U-boats pennant number, commanding officer, location, and whatever details are known about the loss. 288 pages.
The German submarine was a threat to Allied shipping as the underwater war evolved in World War I, and then reached its peak in the early years of World War II. In these wars, one thousand German U-boats were destroyed by air and seaborne attacks, by surface vessels and Allied submarines, in tough head-to-head encounters, chance meetings, and after extensive chases and hunts. This single-source reference is the first to offer a complete record of the Kriegsmarine submarine losses in both world wars.
The product of years of extensive research, it shows what action brought the end of each vessel and adds information on the submarine, its commander, location, survivors, and casualties, plus other background information. This approach clearly demonstrates that the impact of the German navy's submarine fleet was so great that the study of the means by which the threat was removed has become an integral part of understanding sea warfare in the twentieth century. Written by one of Britain's leading naval writers, this unique reference presents a wealth of data in one easy-to-use volume.
