  • S-Boote

    Too little has been written to date on Germany's "Schnellboote" in the Second World War.

Many of their captains were amongst the most decorated of any branch of the Kriegsmarine.

    Jean-Philippe Dallies-Labourdette is a noted expert on the Kriegsmarine in World War Two and was the author of the best selling (and now sadly out of print) U-Boote, published in 1996 by Histoire & Collections.
