Osprey Special Editions (Military) : Wolf Pack : The Story of the U-Boat in World War II
Germany's World War II U-Boat fleet represented the elite of their naval personnel. In terms of technology, training, tactics and combat successes, the U-Boat Waffe was far superior to that of any other combatant nation. In this comprehensive book, the wartime development of the U-Boat is traced along with the experiences of typical U-Boat crewmen, from recruitment to combat. The author examines the operational tactics of the U-Boat fleet, as well as describing the massive bunkers that housed them. 'Wolf Pack' contains material taken from Fortress 3 : 'U-Boat Bases and Bunkers 1941-45', Warrior 36 : 'Grey Wolf : U-Boat Crewman of World War II' and New Vanguards 51 and 55 : 'Kriegsmarine U-Boat 1939-45 (1) and (2)', with the addition of a new section on wartime tactics. Text by Gordon Williamson.
