i bought this book a few years back and recently i pulled it out of the library and read it again,love this book,its a not a very easy book to find but if you find it, buy it. its a really cool book, right size and lots of pictures,it has around 280 pages and its roughly 9 1/2 by 7 1/2 inches, all the pictures are in black and white,every picture has its own caption and there are a few parts of the book that have some interesting reading, some is history and some are personal accounts from certain u boat members,i'm not certain why a lot of people that buy book on subs, airplanes and ships automatically assume that the book was done with the modeler in mind,they are not, there are books specifically for this and you should look for the right book if modeling is your deal,with all that said i recommend this book if you like uboats.

No discussion of history of operations, successes, failures, crews, strategy. Many pictures of outside of U-boat but not many that really show how life/operations/repairs were like in the boat itself. If you a modeler interested in only outside of boat this is fine but even then there are not enough close up to capture great detail needed for fine scale modeling. In addition, and far worse, is the fact that nearly all the pictures are limited to photos available in U.S. archives. One would think that more, if not better, were avaialble elsewhere (especially in German and British archives). In addition, the photos have not type of organizational order (i.e., by U-boat type, chronology or activity).
