“Where the German view of the sinking is available, in 113 cases, the detail is astounding. Also the index is very complete, not only referring to the warships and men that were sunk by these boats, but any crew that were mentioned in the text, rescuing ships, merchantmen involved in both attacks during the event or in rescues, those in the Gazetteer, and so forth. A book well worth hunting for.”—Starshell
