Synopsis

This book gives readers an unusual and authentic insider's view of wartime service in U-boats, based primarily on Werner Hirschmann's diaries, his remarkable photograph album, and historical documents. The author made four combat patrols in the Mediterranean and Atlantic, and included are his experiences on board a destroyer that escorted the "Bismarck" on her last operation, a Mediterranean U-boat patrol, an encounter and escape from American soldiers in the French port of Lorient, and his last patrol to north American waters during which his submarine "U-190" sank a Canadian warship. This illustrated memoir concludes with an appendix featuring never previously published close-up photographs of the Type IXC/40 U-boat.
