This is an original picture book featuring men and vessels of the WWII U-Boat German fleet. A number of U-Boat themed publications were produced by during the Second World War, but to my knowledge, this is the only one that is a total picture book, with photo images on every page... This excellent item is an overview of the UBoat submarine Service, and does not specifically mention U-Boats by ID number, Captain or crew member names.
Although most of the photos were taken on board the uboat of Kptlt. It does give a page after page glimpse into the life of U-Boat crews and their vessels. The images begin with preparation for the voyage and leaving port.... On patrol, engaging the enemy navy, everyday crew life, etc....90 b/w pictures in photo gravure printing. Boards and spine worn, bumped and soiled, mild foxing to endpapers and title page, otherwise ok.
With nice period xmas gift inscription on front free endpaper. All pages are complete and tight in the binding. Approx/Measurements: 10-3/4" x 8-1/2" 1.1 lbs.
