Worthy Addition June 4 2012
By Michael Dunham - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The book is well bound,a nice quality of semi-gloss paper.Abundant photos,excellent drawings,lots of color art devoted to primarily different conning tower/weapons arrangement;hull illustrations,too,but I would have liked more addressing the hull itself,particularly those areas normally immersed.Excellent text does a complete history of the U Boat,both descriptions of the boat as well as operational history,particularly the nice listing of Boat#,Captain,area of ops,ops,and fate of the Boat.
It will also serve as an excellent source for modelers,a number of photos are new to me,and the artists perspectives in the illustrations will serve builders well. Highly recommended for both the U Boat enthusiast as well as folks just wanting a "one volume" work covering the immortal Type VII.

Gift for Dad Feb. 18 2014
By Ralph Bernard - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my dad, who is a WW2 German Navy veteran. He loves it and says that it will take him almost a year to research all of the photos. He was on U-603, a type VIIC.
