READ THE FULL REVIEW

The minor warships in any navy play a very important part in naval warfare but often receive very little attention from historians. This new book provides a detailed view of the Kreigsmarine Security Forces in WWII with many previously unpublished images. It is an important addition to the pool of knowledge and the first substantial review of German naval security forces – Very Highly Recommended.
