About the Author

Jak P. Mallmann Showell's first book (U-boats Under the Swastika) is one of the longest selling naval books in Germany and his second (The German Navy in World War Two) was named as one of the outstanding books of the year by the United States Naval Institute. His research is based exclusively on original documents such as logs, personal accounts written shortly after the events and interviews. His reviewers have named him as being 'the respected authority'. Jak has been awarded the Silver U-boat Badge by the German Submariners' Association in Munich. He has also presented lectures at special Battle of the Atlantic weekends and has helped with the production of TV and radio programmes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another fine work from accomplished U-Boat author 30 April 2014
By M. Casale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Jak Mallmann Showell is likely the most accomplished and knowledgeable author when it comes to writing about the German Kriegsmarine in WWII. This book I think is one of his better works and the though the long range U-boat missions have been spoken about in some of his other books, its definately a topic that should be expaneded into an entire book. Almost the first half of the book contains a few chapters that expand on the role, strategies and life for sailors serving in U-Boats on long distance patrols. If you have read much on U-Boats some of the points you probably know already but I still found a number of details that I dont believe I had ever read about before. The second half of the book focuses on the story of a few of the long distance boats that survived and Showell goes into nice detail of the crews experiences battling not only the allies but of boredom, the heat and their long confinements among other things. As usual Showell has placed great photos throughout the book of pictures that the majority of which I had never seen before. Its great that he seldom uses the same photos in multiple books. I find sometimes his opinions regarding the war sometimes odd but overall his interest in the topic and willingness to investigate and explore the subject in my opinion makes him one of the great authors turning out WWII related books over the past 30 years. If you like reading about U-Boats I believe you would probably enjoy this latest work by him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely gives you a different point of view 9 Sept. 2015
By DIEGO VELASCO BATARCE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book gives you a different view of the life this people had inside this u-boats, it provides you with a lot of information and details that you couldn't possible imagine. It's written by the son of a u-boat's Captain of the second war, hence it's very accurate.
Sometimes you can feel that it tends to be a little too detailed on aspects like the crew's daily style of life, losing the big picture in basically what military history lovers may want to read. However, it's excellent if you like to share old war stories with your friends.

The book brings forward, the very great difficult these men must have had to face during their time at sea, in their very cramped boats, and poor living conditions.
