An excellent book chronologically detailing the story of the U-Boat 1st Flotilla and the U-Boat warfare of WW2. I borrowed this book from my grandfather-in-law with no real knowledge of the U-Boat warfare, but found the story fascinating, especially the swing of power as the U-Boats became the terror of the sea as the Reich's power grew to the rapid collapse of strength as convoy escorts strengthens and intelligence grew thanks to the Enigma decoding. A well written and fascinating book.

Born and raised in New Zealand, but now living in the UK. I've been interested in history, particularly WW2 history, since I can remember.
