Otto Kretschmer, the so-called 'wolf of the Atlantic', is one of the most interesting characters of World War II. He was responsible for bold, daring raids and sinking ship after ship - until his capture in March 1941. The Golden Horseshoe by Terence Robertson has been the standard work on Kretschmer but Lawrence Paterson (author of around 10 other very readable World War II titles) has set a new standard and tells the full story of his life, including his capture and death in 1998. This is an extremely good and interesting read, profusely illustrated (with many photographs I haven't seen anywhere else) - highly recommended.
