Full Description:

Teddy Suhren's U-564 is among the most famous in the illustrious history of Germany's U-boats of World War II, and Suhren himself ranks in the top tier of U-boat commanders, admired both for his extraordinary successes and his infamously anti-establishment attitude. This photographic history of Suhren's U-564 patrol in the summer of 1942 provides new insight into the submarine's trials and successes. The photographs, taken by an onboard war correspondent, show the U-boat in action in the Atlantic and Caribbean, as the Kriegsmarine teetered on the verge of its ultimate downfall. Found in U-564's concrete pen in Brest in 1945, the photographs remained in a shoebox under a bed for nearly sixty years, but now, through the painstaking research of Lawrence Paterson and the Royal Navy Submarine Museum, they are presented for the first time in this unique history of the boat, her crew, and their illustrious and much-loved commander.

Lawrence Paterson is a member of the Royal Navy Submarine Museum's Archive Group specializing in U-boat and Kriegsmarine research, past president of the Brittany Marine Research Society.  He is also the author of First U-Boat Flotilla, Second U-Boat Flotilla, and U-Boats in the Mediterranean.
