5.0 out of 5 stars Great author and fantastic read! 3 July 2016
By Jack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The level of detail outlined in the narration of events that took place during the 1940s is admirable.
Writing so well put together , it felt as though the events unravelled yesterday.
As i continue to read about the u-boats in the Bahamas i am realizing Mr. wiberg is obviously very thorough in his research, is adept in descriptive narration and documenting events past and present.

In addition,Mr. wiberg is definitely gifted and has undoubtedly perfected this skill over time,one can only wonder what other materials (ledgible or film) we may be given the opportunity to enjoy.

Thank you Eric and i look forward to reading more or viewing your work in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Newly researched (and including primary source data) accounts of WWII as it played out in and around the Bahamas!! 1 July 2016
By Joseph Kent Post III - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An extensive and deeply researched survey of all WWII waterborne warfare in the Northern Caribbean. A very interesting basis of knowledge for Caribbean travel especially the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos. This comprehensive work includes Allied and general shipping and maritime traffic as well as u-boat traffic and positioning.

This is a fascinating read for divers, sailors and history buffs - or all three.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating History with Excellent Insights 7 Aug. 2016
By Claire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a beautifully researched and exciting story about the Bahamas during World War II. Wiberg carefully outlines the little known events of that area. It is a marvelous read for those of us who love history, but entertaining for the general reader. Can't wait to read, Wiberg''s next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Although clearly a great resource for those looking for statistics about scale of ... 1 July 2016
By QuichePopcorn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am by no means a student of maritime history so I relied on the recommendation of a friend who extolled "U-Boats in the Bahamas;" describing it as a piece of exhaustive historical investigation imbued with personal narratives of the individuals who survived (and perished) in the Caribbean theater during WWII - which, she also mentioned, is a chapter in WWII history slightly underserved.

Although clearly a great resource for those looking for statistics about scale of ships, tonnage sunk, submarine routes & strategies in this area, at this time, I was more drawn to the citations from personal logs which, for me, bring history to life by introducing the reader to: a young, surviving eye-witness of U-Boats off the coast, an Italian commander who asks the survivors of a ship he had just torpedoed if they needed anything, or the efforts of the local Red Cross to offer cigarettes, clothing & shoes to allied mariners who found themselves without a ship.

Great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A previosuly neglected corner of the Battle of the Atlantic 17 Aug. 2016
By Gustaf Wachtmeister - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
With "U Boats in the Bahamas", Eric Wiberg truly comes of age as a writer and historian. This extensively researched work covers a slightly forgotten part of the Battle of the Atlantic, the outcome of which was certainly crucial for the outcome of WWII in Western Europe. In doing so, the author covers a void in the written history of the war. And Wiberg succeeds in keeping the readers' eyes firmly fixed on the pages, with all the skills of a seasoned historian and narrator. For all those interested in the WWII history of the Bahamas and the Caribbean, this book is an important contribution, with a fascinating attention to various events and individuals. With this work, history buffs may only ask themselves to what subject the author will devote himself next - and look forward to the result.
