German U-Boat Losses During World War II
Ok I admit I am somewhat of an anorak with a passionate interest in naval history, well we are an island after all, and during war if you want to beat the British you have to cut them off at sea first. The U-Boat was the principle weapon for the German’s in their hope of defeating Britain whether through starvation or breaking their morale.
I also admit that I am a collector of postal history and primarily feldpost and the sister branch in the Kriegsmarine so I love to drink all the information up. German U-Boat Losses During World War II has all the information I could ever require from all the U-Boats ordered and those that were completed between 1935 and 1945 and then there is the Loss Register.
The U-Boat building list gives the dates ordered and where they were built along with their corresponding U-Boat number and what design type they were. The Loss Register is comprehensive, with who was the commanding officer, when it was destroyed. It also has the coordinates of where the U-Boat was what destroyed it and the name of the ship or place that destroyed the U-Boat.
This is an excellent book for those that are interested in naval military history in World War II and this is an excellent tool for all researchers.
