“U-BOAT!” (Volume III) continues the fascinating saga of the German U-Bootfahrer in World War Two plus some stories from the American side.
These stories come directly from the memories and video interviews with great Skippers like ERICH TOPP (118-1985) and the top Skipper, “Silent Otto” KRETSCHMER. You’ll also read about the U-Boat activities in the American back yard; the first cargo submarine; propaganda broadcasts; the “tethered goats” – there is even information about the secret mission of U-977………..and a bit about Antarctica!
This book is an extension of “U-BOAT!” (Volumes I and II)
