Twenty Million Tons Under The Sea


This is an excellent non-fiction WWII book which tells the story of U-505. The scene is set with a synopsis of the opening actions of WWII by U-Boats, but the story of U-505 starts with her keel laying, follows her deployment and operation, to her capture by a US Navy hunter-killer group in the Atlantic, through to her preservation and exhibition at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry as one of the few to survive. A tale of suspense and excitement.
