ELITE 183: U-BOAT TACTICS IN WORLD WAR II

Details

At the start of the war German U-boat technology vastly out performed that possessed by the Allies and under the pressure of the war continual development helped keep pace with wartime needs and improvements in anti-submarine weaponry. But it was not just the technology that had to change. German U-boat tactics evolved over time. Used in a variety of roles from coastal patrolling through to the combined actions of convey-hunting 'wolf packs' the tactics used by U-Boats were diverse. This book analyses how the U-boats dominated the seas thanks to their innovative and daring tactical deployment and how the cracking of the Enigma code effectively hamstrung them greatly reducing their impact a problem that even their advanced tactics failed to solve.
