Raiders of the Deep


Show Synopsis

In this oral history of the U-boats of the Great War, Lowell Thomas introduces many of the great pioneering submariners such as Hersing, Steinbrink, Hashagen and the most successful submarine commander of all time, the remarkable von Arnauld. Their stories relate how the U-Boat War was nearly won, then lost in a conning-tower view of the great struggle for supremacy of the shipping lanes.

Life below the waves

Lowell Thomas is a fantastic writer and in this book he exposes the daily life of the U-boat crews as they carry out their mission to stop allied shipping.

Interesting Read

Book gives an interesting account of WW!'s U-Boat activity from the German perspective. Well written and based on what seems to be reliable information. Just a bit generic. Didn't make me feel like "I was there" as occasionally authors can make you feel.

Excellent book from the German side of the war. Tells factual stories that they were sailors doing their job. Not the monsters according to British propanganda.
