It is well written, and can be a little too detailed at times for the general reader. However, you just need to remind youself that each ship mentioned as sunk meant more merchant seamen going down with their ships.
In the end, the allies managed to win the U-boat war, but it was a close run thing. This book is an excellent addition for those interested in this theatre.
My test of a good book is simply 'did I regret buying it' and I certainly did not. An excellent buy.
739 U-boats were lost and 28728 men with them. This gives some idea of the scale of the U-boat operation which in 1943 came close to breaking the Allied supply lines. Thereafter it was slowly downhill for the U-boats, though even in April 1945 more than 100 of the new type XX1 boats were still in training.
I found the book interesting, though there was perhaps more detail than I wanted. However, readers looking for a very full record will not be disappointed.
