Editorial Reviews

Review

“…intelligently organized…well documented record…an interesting compilation…”
The Daybook Vol 10, Issue 1

“This book gives a very in-depth coverage of this famous boat, explaining among other things that she was by no means a failed U-boat and had a very interesting history and had many special events, such as being called ‘the most badly damaged U-boat ever to return to port’ by many. She was thus by no means a boat with a poor history only famous for being captured at sea...All in all this is probably the best single-volume book on the U-505 (and then some). It should give a very thorough history of the boat, and U-boats operations as such to anyone reading it. This book is thus much more than simply a story about one U-boat as in turn it covers so much side material affecting all boats. Highly recommended.”
Uboat.net: Naval Warfare Books

“Hunt and Kill: U-505 and the U-boat War in the Atlantic, edited by Theodore P. Savas, is not just another ‘How U-505 was captured’ story. Instead, it is a collection of chapters by some of the best U-boat historians writing today. Gathering them all together to write on this subject was a risky proposition, for many similar compendiums produce a disjointed and unfocused book of uneven quality. Theodore Savas, as an experienced editor and writer, has avoided these pitfalls by gathering the finest talent available and getting the best possible from each contributor. The various chapters fit seamlessly together and add substantially to the final product...If you are interested in U-boats or Naval History, Hunt and Kill: U-505 and the U-boat War in the Atlantic is a must have.”
Ubootwaffe.net: Kriegsmarine and U-Boat history

“After reading Hunt and Kill edited by Theodore P. Savas, I realized how much I didn’t know about this so-called “unlucky sub.” Thankfully, the book isn’t just another ‘How the U-505 was captured’ book or generic U-boat history. It is a rich compendium of chapters by some of the most well known U-boat experts around today.”
Tim Smalley, The Sub Committee Report
