“The German U-Boast campaign against American shipping in the waters of Bermuda is an obscure theater of the Second World War which is now told in great detail and comprehensively… A simply fascinating and impressively informative read from cover to cover, "U-Boats off Bermuda: Patrol Summaries and Merchant Ship Survivors Landed in Bermuda 1940-1944" is an extraordinary and unreservedly recommended addition to both community and academic library World War II Military History collections.” (Midwest Book Review)
“Wiberg successfully tells the engaging story of the oft-overlooked merchant crews who were a crucial part of the Battle of the Atlantic. His writing informs and, as he attempted to do, inspires empathy in the reader for the officers, sailors, and passengers aboard the U-Boat victims as well as with the U-Boat crews themselves. As the first comprehensive book on the subject, Wiberg has opened a new chapter in scholarship while allowing others to follow and flesh out other stories of Bermuda’s small but important role during World War II.” (Naval Historical Foundation)
From the Author
This book was a joy for me to research and write since I have been sailing to and from Bermuda - over 30 times - since age 18 in the late 1980s. It a group of islands of rare enchantment as well as isolation and its people are blessed with the kind of natural maritime savvy unique to distant island communities. This book is the second of a trilogy and as such ties the other two - U-Boats in Bahamas and U-Boats in New England together. The Bahamas book laid a foundation for the massive sinkings - over 130 vessels. Bermuda focuses more on the counter-attack by aircraft as well as the creative rescue of over 1,200 Allied sailors and passengers. New England will focus more on groups of saboteurs and U-boat victims from the fishing and schooner fleets. These books are a pleasure to compose, and I hope that readers enjoy them as much as I did creating them! Remember the over-riding theme is that each books presents a massive oceanic battlefield of World War II, utilizing previously censored original source material, for the first time in coalescent detail.
