U-Boat Commander: A Periscope View of the Battle of the Atlantic
by Peter Cremer
Out of 820 U-boats that participated in the Battle of the Atlantic, 781 were destroyed in action; out of 40,000 men, more than 30,00 lost their lives. These horrifying statistics on the survival rate of the German wolf packs in World War II are at last given meaning in this true-life thriller by famed U-boat ace Peter "Ali" Creamer. One of just three senior submarine commanders to survive, Cremer conveys the realities of the war as few writers can.
