Kriegsmarine U-Boats 1939-45 Volume 1
By Williamson, Gordon
Descripton: From the publisher: This, the first of two volumes on Germany's World War II U-boats, traces their development through the early U-boats of the Kaiser's navy; the prohibition on Germany having U-boats following the Armistice in 1918 and the subsequent Treaty of Versailles; the secret development of U-boats using a "cover-firm" in Holland; and culminating in the formation of the 1st U-boat Flotilla in 1935 with the modern Type II. The operational history section includes examples from the various U-boat types.
