From the cover: “The revised edition of this comprehensive reference book — the product of years of detailed research by the leading expert in the field — provides the most extensive and reliable data on Axis submarine victories available in any one volume.

Taken from a wide variety of sources, this is a unique and detailed compilation of German, Italian, Japanese, Romanian, Finnish and Vichy-French submarine successes and claims against Allied and Neutral ships in every theatre of the war at sea. Each entry gives the date of the attack; the nationality, name and commander of the attacking submarine; a map reference giving the precise location of the attack; and the type, tonnage, nationality and name of the ship sunk. Additional information, aimed at resolving controversial claims and clarifying hitherto inexact data, is also provided.

This superb book is an indispensable guide to submarine operations in World War Two and a mine of information on military and merchant shipping losses in that wide-ranging and destructive conflict.”
