This unique book is the most comprehensive oral history of the U-boats of the Great War. Lowell Thomas introduced the world to many of the great pioneering submariners like, Hersing, Steinbrink, Hashagen and the most successful submarine commander of all time, the remarkable von Arnauld. Their stories relate how the U-Boat War was nearly won, then lost. This conning tower view of the great struggle for supremacy of the shipping lanes remains today as fresh and exciting as the events it relates.
The enduring popularity of this great classic of naval conflict lies not only in its fascinating content, but also in the readability of Lowell Thomas' journalistic approach. These two features combine to make what many believe to be the greatest submarine book ever written!
