U-Boat 977

£9.99

Product description

Hardback with blue cloth covers, it has gilt titling on the spine. The text is in good condition, however the boards are very worn and faded. The volume contains a preface by the Admiral of the Fleet the Earl of Corr and Orrery, a foreword by Nicholas Monsarrat, the front end paper has a plan of U 977 and the rear end paper has a map showing its voyage in 1945. There are also black and white illustrations.
U-Boat 977 escaped to Argentina from Norway, where it was based, at the end of WWII. At one stage it was submerged for 66 days. The commander of U-Boat 977 tells of his earlier career as well as his last wartime command, and tells of the journey to Argentina after the surrender in 1945 - thus creating the rumour that he had taken Hitler there.
