Der Handelskrieg mit U-Booten

By Spindler; Arno
(The Trade Warfare with U-boats)
1932, Mittler & Sohn Verlag
book is in German language

Descripton: These books cover only operations against enemy trade ships. For operations against warships, see Gayer, Albert. These books are the most important source for this topic. Very well researched, covering every patrol and including a lot of data.
These books were very rare. At present you have to pay for volume 4 & 5 some 500 DM in Germany, but the problem is not mainly the money, the problem is to get a copy!
