5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Ned Middleton HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 9 Jan 2009
My day-to-day work comprises mostly of researching ships sunk at sea. It's what I do. For me, therefore, this book is an important addition to my own private library - if only because I will refer to it probably once every two years or so. That said, I must confess to something of a disappointment.

In another work entitled "British & Commonwealth Merchant Ship Losses to Axis Submarines 1939-1945," this author produced a 5 star book which included the WW2 fates of over 1,400 ships, 40 b&w photographs, glossary, impressive bibliography and ship index.

In this case, it seems he has simply copied out a list of ships sunk by U Boat during an earlier war and rearranged that list alphabetically by shipping company. There are no photographs and one painting of a U Boat at work is included as an end paper.

As I say, ships are listed alphabetically by shipping company. Each narrative comprises 3 short lines which include; Name of ship, tonnage, year built, date lost, location, U Boat involved, sometimes the final known position and numbers of crew lost. All ships are then listed again in an index.

Useful for people like me but not a book anyone is likely to read.

This book is good for me because I would like to find out about the ships that went down in the war and about the owners
