Please note that simply because we have no errata listing for a certain book does certainly not mean it's without fault. Also, a large reference book will have thousands of facts and some of them might be incorrect while a autobiography will have a much simpler dataset and thus fewer possible mistakes. As an example, Axis Submarine Successes has well over 90,000 factual entries where a simple mistake could have been made - so it's a hugely complicated and delicate book.

We are checking 6 errata reports in several titles right now. They will be published soon if confirmed. Add new Errata entry to the system.

NEW!
You can now subscribe to our weekly e-mail listing all the new errata information added to the database.

How do we check these things? We use our own uboat.net databases as the main checking point - if we are unsure (uboat.net itself might contain mistakes) we refer to certain first-level sources and primary data like the U-Boot Archiv in Germany. However the database effort that uboat.net has become has given us the chance to run a series of computer-checks on the data that has revealed many mistakes, fixed in uboat.net, still found in many excellent books.

Also, we not only check if the fact in question is correct, we also make sure it's indeed in the book as claimed (we might not have all the books in our hands and then we hold the errata for the title until we check the book). We do not want to report something faulty where there is no such thing.
