The submarine service, along with the British and US bomber crews, was a primary 
strategic weapon during WWII. Also, like the bomber crews, U-boat crews suffered 
enormous casualties. Just setting to sea or taking off to bomb Germany was an act of 
exceptional courage. The award of medals to some of the crews was almost 
irrelevant because it was such a small percentage of the total number not only 
demonstrating exceptional courage, by setting out once more, but because each 
new mission reduced the chances of survival.

The author has provided well-research text, together with a large number of images 
from archive stocks. This is both a recognition of extreme courage and a graphic 
insight into the skill, determination, persistence, raw courage, and comradeship.
