U-boats in Camera: 1939-45: Photographs from the International Submarine Archive, Germany by Jak P. Mallmann Showell

£6.99

Product description

This volume charts the life of a German U-boat from construction through to active service, and looks at commissioning, sea trials and the first patrol of a typical boat during World War II. This illustrated book also offers a glimpse at domestic life on board a German U-boat, focusing on what the ordinary seaman would have seen and experienced during his first weeks aboard a brand new boat. The author draws on the extensive archives of the German U-boat Archive and many of the photos that appear in the book are previously unpublished. Comprehensive captions describe in detail the many aspects of a U-boat at war, from the boat itself, to the crew and its personalities, life above and below the waves, and the weapons and radar with which it fought Allied shipping. This book affords an insight into this much-feared weapon of World War II, and should appeal to all with an interest in the armed forces of the Third Reich.

Hardback published in 1999 by Sutton Publishing in good condition. Binding sound and pages clean and unmarked. Some bumping to top and bottom of spine and the corners of the black cloth board covers are also slightly bent at the top with some small marks also to top edge of back cover. Gilt title on spine. Dustjacket in good condition for age, some small marks and scratches, a little worn and creased at corners, along top edges of front and back cover and at top and bottom of spine. 133 pages with clear and bright black and white photographs on nearly every page.
