S-Boote : German E Boats in Action, 1939-1945, Hardback Book


Too little has been written to date on Germany's "Schnellboote" in the Second World War.

Known by the Allies as E-Boats (Enemy Boats) the S Boote played havoc on Allied naval operations in the English channel and elsewhere. Many of their captains were amongst the most decorated of any branch of the Kriegsmarine. Jean-Philippe Dallies-Labourdette is a noted expert on the Kriegsmarine in World War Two and was the author of the best selling (and now sadly out of print) U-Boote, published in 1996 by Histoire& Collections. This highly detailed book examines all aspects of the S-Boote, from design to deployment and notes all the major engagements for which they are famous.

As with all Histoire& Collections books, you are guaranteed a visual feast of excellent descriptive graphics and previously unseen photographs.
