The book does quite well showing where the major operations took place and covers the major German attempts on Allied convoys and how the wolf pack attacks (as the book points out, this was an Allied term) developed in response to the convoy system. Focus is also given to the difficulty U-boats had in rough North Atlantic weather, the difficulty in finding convoys and the difficulties caused by increasing Allied capabilities in cryptography, radar and airpower.
As the title indicates, the focus is on wolf pack attacks, and thus the period 1944-45 isn't covered as by that time, the Germans had withdrawn from the Atlantic and were focusing as best as they could on British home waters. That means there isn't much on the impact of the schnorkel.
The book is best considered to be a sketch of the subject with plenty of graphics. I will say that I read this after having finished Clay Blair's two-volume work on the U-boat campaign, so that may make this work seem more bare-bones than it would be to a reader uninitiated in the subject.
