VERY RARE ORIGINAL 1942 THIRD REICH PHOTO BOOK

U-BOOT AUF FEINDFAHRT

U-BOAT ON WAR PATROL

This 8-1/2 x 10-3/4 inch, 96 page hardcover book by Harald Busch is by far the most fascinating original Third Reich book about the U-Boat war in the Atlantic! It was published in 1942 by Bertelsmann Verlag in Guetersloh. It contains wonderful full page photos on nearly every page. The author Harald Busch was a war correspondent and this heavily illustrated book is his report of a war patrol of a German U-Boat in the Atlantic, pretty similar to the story in the famous war movie "Das Boot". It starts with getting the boat ready, taking supplies and food aboard, then heading out into the Atlantic ocean, watch on the bridge, looking for enemy ships and enemy aircraft, rare photos of the life on board where 50 people were crammed together in a steel tube, together with their torpedoes and supplies, then the hunt for enemy ships, photos of the sinking of several ships and the return into the harbor where the ship and crew were welcomed by a Wehrmacht band and celebrated by the crowd that was waiting at the pier! This book in very good condition shows the life on a German U-Boat like no other original Third Reich book we have seen! It is a copy of the first and probably only edition.
