Hitler's U-boat fortresses. (reprint, 2003)

Bradham, Randolph.

The Lyons Press


196 pages




In June of 1940, Nazi forces captured French naval bases at St. Nazaire and Lorient. Setting out from these fortresses, German U-boats would destroy thousands of merchant and military vessels by the war's end. In this text, Bradham (who fought with the 66th Infantry Division) describes how successive waves of British, American, and French forces assaulted these bases--at the cost of a great many lives. This first paperback edition of a volume originally published in 2003 by Praeger is illustrated with b&w historical photographs.
