Book gives an interesting account of WW!'s U-Boat activity from the German perspective. Well written and based on what seems to be reliable information. Just a bit generic. Didn't make me feel like "I was there" as occasionally authors can make you feel.

Excellent book from the German side of the war. Tells factual stories that they were sailors doing their job. Not the monsters according to British propanganda.
