Now in paperback, Hunt and Kill offers the first definitive study of U-505. Chapters include her construction, crew and commanders, combat history, an assessment of Type IX operations, naval intelligence, the eight fatal German mistakes that doomed the ill-fated boat, her capture, and final transportation and restoration for posterity.
The contributors to this fascinating volume—a Who's Who of U-boat historians—include: Erich Topp (U-552, Odyssey of a U-boat Commander); Eric Rust (Naval Officers Under Hitler); Timothy Mulligan (Neither Sharks Nor Wolves); Jak Mallmann Showell (Hitler's U-boat Bases); Jordan Vause (Wolf); Lawrence Patterson (First U-boat Flotilla); Mark Wise (Enigma and the Battle of the Atlantic); Keith R. Gill (former Curator, U-505, Museum of Science and Industry), and Theodore P. Savas (editor, Silent Hunters: German U-boat Commanders of World War II; author, Nazi Millionaires).

The reader gets to second-guess the many critical,split second decisions that were made under the most intense,chaotic,situations a submariner has to face.The different writers bring you right in the middle of both sides of the battle.From the building of U-505 to Captain Gallery's inside info that put him right on top of U-505.It is like you are right there. Great reading!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
