The long awaited reprint of this definitive anatomy of the Type VII U-Boat. The quality of the early edition has not left much room for improvement and inevitably the cover price has increased. Interestingly, the price is lower in real terms and Conway have done very well to achieve this without compromise of a definitive work. This edition is very slightly thinner suggesting that some savings have been made by using a lighter weight paper and/or binding, but it is hard to see any difference close up. The interesting innovation has been to adopt the publishing standard evolved during the life of the Anatomy of the Ship series.
