U-Boat Commanders and Crews is a fascinating study of the training, organisation, duties and daily life at sea and in port of all ranks and branches.

The author gives detailed accounts of specific patrols by individual crews at different stages of the war drawn from original logs. He studies the phenomenon of the “ace”, examining the fact that the great majority of Allied tonnage sunk was sent to the bottom by only a small fraction of the submarines at sea.
