4.0 out of 5 stars Special interest only 28 Oct 2012
The book lists all German u-boats made and lost/capture during the war. No fancy pictures, just facts, a few good maps in the end to illustrated some of the places they went down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference book. 11 Mar 2011
An excellent reference book which you will not regret buying.
History like rust never sleeps and Dr. Niestle has since its publication has identified other boats, but as it stands you will not find a better or more complete source on the fate of German U Boats 1939-1945.

5.0 out of 5 stars Basic Reference Material 6 Sep 2004
By Eldon Curtis - Published on Amazon.com
This book consists almost entirely of tables and charts, so it doesn't exactly make compelling reading. Nevertheless, it provides a complete listing of all U-boats built or contracted for World War II, as well as detailed tables, by vessel type, of all U-boat losses. While a handful of boats have now been found to have been lost in different locations than what was believed in 1961, Niestle's work remain a primary reference source for any submarine scholar. If you want a great story about a U-boat, read Das Boot. If you need to know where U-652 was sunk, by who, and how many men were rescued, this is the book you're looking for.
