Full Description:

Between September 1941 and May 1944 the Germans sent 62 U-boats into the Mediterranean. To get there, the boats had to pass through the Straits of Gibraltar—the British-held entry point, where nearly a third of them were sunk or forced to turn back. Of the U-boats that made it into the clear, calm waters of the Mediterranean, not one of them ever made it back into the Atlantic: They were all either sunk in battle or scuttled by their own crews.

U-boats in the Mediterranean looks at the perilous history of German submarine operations in the Mediterranean, where, despite their ultimate fate, their strategic impact was dramatic.

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 and Second U-Boat Flotilla.
