U-Boats in the Mediterranean, 1941-1944 by Lawrence Paterson

Book Description

Between September 1941 and May 1944 the Germans sent 62 U-boats into the Mediterranean. To get there, the boats had to pass through the Straits of Gibraltar the British-held entry point, where nearly a third of them were sunk or forced to turn back. Of the U-boats that made it into the clear, calm waters of the Mediterranean, not one of them ever made it back into the Atlantic: They were all either sunk in battle or scuttled by their own crews. U-boats in the Mediterranean looks at the perilous history of German submarine operations in the Mediterranean, where, despite their ultimate fate, their strategic impact was dramatic. "
