Описание (About this book): The U-boats provided most of the German naval heroes of the war, who received, proportionally, the greatest number of higher awards, such as the different classes of the Knitting's Cross of the Iron Cross, in comparison with other branches of the Navy. Employing a total of some 1200 submarines (of these, 750 were lost), they accounted for the destruction of 2840 Allied ships totalling 14000000 tons, including 150 warships, among them two battleships, three fleet carriers and 41 destroyers. Of the 40000 men who served aboard the vessels of the Kriegsmarine.
