READ THE FULL REVIEW
By happy accident, a shoe box full of photographs was liberated from a U-Boat pen at the end of WWII, hidden until recently, to be found once more. The author has provided a unique and graphic account of U 564. This is much more than a photo essay, with well researched and written text, supported by this unique treasure trove of images – Recommended.
This popular series of books follows the publishers format of lavish illustration with concise text. The author has provided a unique impression of the Union Army, using early field photographs that include some coloured photographs – Recommended.
