First Sentence
During World War Two, if one single weapon in Germany's arsenal can be said to have come closest to winning the war for the Third Reich, it was without doubt the U-Boat. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
This volume of the Osprey Military series might be a bit of a disappointment for some. It mainly deals with the uniforms and equipment of the German U-boat crews from 1914 for 1945. For anyone interested in uniforms this book should be a good reference. Readers interested in the organisation, training and work of U-boat crews will have to look elsewhere. The illustrations by Darko Pavlovic are good.

Format: Paperback
It should be noted that, like many Osprey books, this book is written and illustrated for people who want to understand what soldiers of a specific nation and period looked like. People other than those making miniature models or designing costumes for cinema will find these books to be superficial and brief, but they are excellent for their intended audience.

Too much discussion of uniforms but none of who these men were Sept. 5 2007
By Yoda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Too much discussion/illustrations of what the crews wore (hence is an excellent reference for figurine and model builders) but almost none regarding the actual men themselves. No discussion of backgrounds, motivations, training, etc. One comes away knowing their uniforms inside out but not knowing one iota about the crews serving on these boats.
