Too little has been written to date on Germany's "Schnellboote" in the Second World War. Known by the Allies as E-Boats (Enemy Boats) the S Boote played havoc on Allied naval operations in the English channel and elsewhere.

Histoire & Collections is very similar to Osprey in my viewpoint, essentially a very good French publisher that puts together photograph heavy books packed with information on a very specific topic. This book is all that, and is superbly constructed with high quality paper and binding.

That said, this is indeed a translation type of book, so there are a fair number of awkward attempts at English sentences. I'm ok with that, because honestly it does not diminish the understanding or education

This book is worth the price if only because it covers a topic that is almost never addressed: the small vessel engagements that were commonplace and fierce on along most of Europe's coastline during the war years. However, it immediately becomes clear that this book was not originally written in English, and the poor translation and syncopated writing style detract from what could be a rare gem of a tome.
