Descripción

As was the case in World War II, one of the greatest threats to Britain during World War I was the German U-boat menace. This book traces the development of the U-boat threat from the Brandtaucher, designed by Wilhem Bauer, the father of the German submarine arm, in 1850, through to the commissioning of Ger
many’s firts U-boat to go into service, the U-1 in 1906. It also covers the main types of World War I U-boat, detailing the operational history of the U-boat service in depth, with a particular focus on the campaings in the Atlantic and Mediterranean, as well as the slow build up of anti-submarine measures by the allies.
