U-boote 1935-1945

by Dalliès-Labourdette, Jean-Philippe
(U-boats 1935-1945: The history of the submarines of the Kriegsmarine)
L\'histoire des sous-marins de la Kriegsmarine
1996, Histoire & Collections
ISBN 2908182424
Hardcover, 144 pages, with 16 pages in colour, format 24 x 32
This book contains many excellently reproduced photographs, many of which were new to me, including some good shots of U-boat pens. There are also some pretty good U-boat color profiles, several pages of U-boat and Flotilla insignia (all in color), and a very nice full-color 8-page section on German war art featuring U-boats and U-boat men. Also included are a full-color photo feature on U-bootwaffe uniforms and equipment, and a section on U-boats in the movies.

While this book is overall a very good value, is a good read for the most part, and offers many excellent photos and illustrations, it does suffer from poor editing. There is an inexcusable number of typographical errors, misspellings, and incorrect English.
