Description - Nightmare at Scapa Flow by H.J. Weaver
Sinking the battleship HMS Royal Oak with the loss of more than 800 of her crew, was Germany's first shattering blow against Britain in the 1939-45 war. Within six weeks the long-standing German dream of breaching the defences of Scapa Flow had been achieved.
The author has interviewed Royal Oak survivors, members of U-47's 1939 crew, Lt. Prien's widow and members of the firm which published his autobiography. He has examined all the official accounts and investigated every point of controversy until he was able to set down a documented, definitive account of this British naval disaster.
