This latest work by Bernard Edwards, one of the foremost naval historians writing today, charts the declining fortunes of the U-boats from the apogee of their power in 1943 to their final defiant show of force in the North Sea when the German armies on land lay defeated and demoralised. Interwoven with these momentous events is a commentary on the brutal 'kill-or-be-killed' life in a typical U-boat of the day as described in the War Diary of U-223 commanded by Karl-Jurgen Wachter.
Twilight of the U-Boats will be read and enjoyed by all those who are fascinated by the conduct of this aspect of warfare and the courage of those who fought under the most dire and dangerous conditions.
