First few Otto Kretschmer reviews have arrived :)

“…The copious illustrations illuminate a text that is sometimes complex but which is always clearly written and easy to follow, while the range of sources – from oral history, through printed works and manuscript material, to clips of film, radio, and television interviews downloaded from the Internet – that Paterson draws together is itself astounding. Whilst entertaining for the general reader, this book will be a source of reference for those seeking information on vessels lost to U-boat attacks, the technicalities of operating a U-boat, or other aspects of the war at sea between 1939 and 1941.”
Australian Naval Institute, John Johnston

“Well illustrated and written, this is an absorbing book about a supremely confident and utterly professional submarine commander.
Highly recommended.”

Thanks very much 🙂
