I read this 3 years ago,and this is a super, illustrated book about a much-neglected period of German Naval History.The depth of research is very good, the illustrations are superb, including rare photographs of Wrecks of famous ships like "Scheer", I think it is an essential addition for anyone interested in German Naval History, or of World War Two.The companion to Hitlers Naval War by Cajus Beeker --By David I.

He gives you a good impression of the overwhelming force deployed by the Allies at the end of the Second World War. --By Michael Knight
what a book. read this and the other two books in the trilogy and you find it easy to understand how germany lost the war --By robert michael lowe

For example, he gives an exceptional account of the activities of the minor surface units the German navy had in the Mediterranean.
I wish he would write such detail on the other years of the war. I would gladly buy those books and read them right away.
