During WWII over 250 Allied warships from a dozen navies were sunk by German U-boats. This groundbreaking study of 110 vessels provides a detailed analysis of every sinking for which source material survives from both the Allied and German sides. Representing the first large-scale publication of U-boat war diaries in any language, the book offers a wealth of new information, including the circumstances of the sinkings, the technical environment, and the fate of the crews.
Daniel Morgan is a professional translator from a naval family. Bruce Taylor is the author of The Battlecruiser HMS Hood: An Illustrated Biography, 1916–1941. Morgan lives in England, Taylor lives in Los Angeles.
Praise for U-Boat Attack Logs
“In all I found this to be a highly enjoyable and beautifully laid out book. The authors have demonstrated a mastery of the primary source material from all sides of the conflict and have presented it in a way that will appeal to the professional as well as the amateur reader. This is perhaps one of the first books I’ve seen from these publishers and I’m very impressed. Very highly recommended.”
