When U-234 slipped out of a Norwegian harbor in March 1945 destined for Japan, it was loaded with some of the most technically advanced weaponry and electronic detection devices of the era, along with a select group of officials. En route, word came that Germany had surrendered, and the boat's commander suddenly found himself with a rogue submarine, a precious assortment of cargo, and two Japanese naval officers still at war. This dramatic account of the voyage offers an intriguing look at the individuals involved.
"An absolutely riveting tale of Germany's desperate attempt in the last days of the Third Reich to smuggle Nazi scientists, tons of high-tech weaponry, and more than one thousand pounds of uranium to Japan via submarine." –Carl LaVO, author of Galloping Ghost
