Descripton: A detailed combat log of the entire Soviet Baltic Fleet submarine force from the first day of war till spring of 1945, including Marinesco’s S-13 sinking of a Gustloff and Steuben. Superb source of data, providing one can read Russian. More than 100 photos of boats and their captains, numerous maps and sketches taken from actual combat reports (e.g., a scheme of the German ASW barrier in the Gulf of Finland, a sketch with relative positions of a hunted S-4 with a plotted position and consecutive numbers for each depth charge thrown by a German subhunter(!), numerous torpedo attack plots).
