HITLER'S BATTLESHIPS - Paperback

2007, ISBN: 9781557503633

Hardcover, ID: 454604146

UK: Cassell, 2007. Paperback. Very Good. 5" x 7.75. p/b 563 pages, condition is very good. The thrilling wartime novel that inspired Wolfgang Petersen's Academy Award-nominated, blockbuster film! Written by an actual survivor of Germany's U-boat fleet, Das Boot is one of the most exciting stories of naval warfare ever published, a tale filled with almost unbearable tension and suspense. In autumn 1941, a German U-boat commander and his crew set out on yet another hazardous patrol in the Battle of the Atlantic. Over the coming weeks they brave the ocean's stormy waters and seek out British supply ships to destroy. But their targets travel in well-guarded convoys. When contact finally occurs, the hunter quickly becomes the hunted, and a cat-and-mouse game begins as the U-boat hides deep beneath the surface of the sea. Soon, claustrophobia becomes an enemy almost as frightening as the depth charges exploding around them. The release of this supremely gripping, merciless intense story commemorates the 60th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II., Cassell, 2007, 1992, ANNAPOLIS, NAVAL INSTITUTE ,US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6X9, VG./VG condition, v, 194 pages, illustrations, bibliog., index. ------------------------------------------------------------------The battleships of Hitler's navy challenged the enemy in the arctic blizzards of the Barents Sea and gave battle amongst the freezing mists and ice-floes of the Denmark Strait. They prowled the convoy routes of the North Atlantic and pushed beyond the Equator on raiding sorties that took the swastika ensign from the inshore waters of Brazil and Uruguay to the coastline of West Africa. One, the Admiral Scheer, even penetrated as far as the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. They sank the battlecruiser Hood and the carrier Glorious. They destroyed an impressive number of merchant ships after firstly ensuring that the passengers and crews were safe. And they humbled Britain's naval pride by breaking through the Dover Straits in broad daylight against all the odds. Churchill considered them to be a greater danger to the Empire's sea borne wade than the lurking menace of the U-boats. Yet despite their tactical victories, the strategic threat they posed to the Allies was never fully appreciated by the Nazi leadership. And it was the misfortune of their crews that they were led by a Fuhrer who once admitted: `On land I am a hero. At sea I am a coward'. Indeed at one critical point in the conflict hitter even demanded that the big ships should be demilitarised and scrapped. The Kriegsmarine's battleships fought a long, hard, and chivalrous war. The Graf Spee sailed for her combat station a full ten days before Hitler's tanks rolled into Poland. And the LUTZOW was still firing her guns at the advancing Russian coops four days after the Nazi dictator committed suicide in his Berlin bunker. Yet not one of Germany's heavy ships was destined to survive the conflict. Two were sent to the bottom by the guns and torpedoes of the Royal Navy. Three fell victim to the bombs of the RAF, and two were scuttled.
