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.

Disappointing Aug. 19 2015
By J. Moore - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I thought this would be the be-all, end-all book about the Type VII German U-boat. Unfortunately, it is far from that. Many of the pictures I have already seen in other books, so was disappointed already with the book. The narrative also has a decided anti-German bias, which is no doubt due to the author being Polish. Understandable perhaps, but out of place in what is supposed to be a reference book.
The computer generated U-boat models are nicely done, but I would have preferred to see some color profile views. If you are looking for an all-in-one encyclopedic reference on Type VII U-boats, this is not it..

This is the best technical reference I have found but is lacking in ... April 29 2015
By Bob D. - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I purchased this book because I have a strong interest in WWII and because I wanted technical information and color information for model building. This is the best technical reference I have found but is lacking in official color information.
