Interesante aproximación a la historia del arma submarina alemana durante la Gran Guerra. Excelentes fotos pero en esta ocasión, a diferencia de otros títulos de la serie, las ilustraciones son algo pobres. Buen resumen del desarrollo de los diversos tipos de submarinos y sus distintos cometidos a lo largo de la contienda. Hubiera sido deseable una descripción más larga y precisa de su uso operativo, su destino tras la guerra y sus diferencias respecto a sus homólogos ingleses, por ejemplo.
