FirstRead

 

This 60-page A4 ‘bookazine’ consists of a glossy card cover adorned with a trio of very useful photos - two in colour, and a main body of high quality glossy paper that allows superb photo reproduction, none of which have apparently been published previously.

 

 

Photos are all of a good size.

The text and captions are in German and English and consists of a series of chapters covering interesting boats, operations and personnel such as:

  1. U-403 - with  a’Rushing Wolf” on the conning tower, some 30 pages of pictures, maps and descriptions of actions in the Baltic area

  2. U-449, with a Sea Devil Emblem and a couple of others with unknown emblems, and

  3. a series of photos which have stories attached to them, both personal and military.

 

Conclusion

 

All-in-all, an interesting mass of information that will inform and intrigue the modeller and historian of the dreaded U-Boats and , if this is your thing, then it comes recommended. .

Highly recommended.

Thanks to Start Verlag for the sample
