Publisher's Summary

The History and Bravery of the U-Boats. 

The brave men, and now women, who choose to serve on today’s submarines have to have a certain type of bravery that many do not possess. There is always the danger that the wrong move, a wrong turn, or mechanical failure will spell certain death for them. At times of war, this danger is even more amplified. Those who signed up for duty in the early submarines were more at risk than today’s military forces. This was the case for the German U-Boat crews. 

While there is little doubt that those who served the German forces were on the wrong side of the war, many of the men in the U-Boats showed a level of courage and cunning that few have shown then or ever again. The dangers of the sea were a real concern for these men. From faulty equipment to taking on enemy fire, there were several ways that these men could mean there’s watery death.

There were tales of bravery as well. Through this book you will learn about both tragedy and heroics that set these men both above and beyond the cut.

An average overview of the U-Boat war

This book provided an average overview of the U-Boat war, it doesn't go into any real depth though (or even into that many U-Boat missions, most of the time is spent talking about Preen, U-47 and his mission in Scapa Flow). I would suggest looking at other books as this one is only 3 hours long and not really worth the Audable credit, Narrator doesn't really suit the book either. My 4 stars are for the fact that it does a good job at giving an overview and does point you towards some other areas of historical interest concerning the Battle of the Atlantic.
