From day 1 i had no doubt that i had struck gold in getting this book. It's an amazing pool of knowledge about U-boot warefare in World War 2 as it was driven by the German Krigsmarine.
I use the book for the game Silent Hunter III (Soon Silent Hunter IV) and it has saved my skin many times to "play by the book"
The book covers how to operate your U-boot as the commander of the U-boot. It was originaly written by the german U-boot commanders in WWII during the war to help new commanders in their commands. With the capture of U-505 it fell into the hands of the US-Marine and were translated to English. The published book is the English translation of the book.
