Product Description

A fascinating collection of WWII original black and white photographs of varying sizes of German U-Boat Submarines, which are the result of one person collecting them over many years.

The photos show a variety of U-Boats, with images of the crew, the captains, at sea, in harbour, passing review, in drydock, etc. The sizes vary from 3 x 4 inches to 8 x 10. Mostly, they are privately taken photos, but some are well known and one is a British Press photograph, taken at the end of the War. It shows a German U-Boat sailing to surrender in Britain, escorted by a Royal Navy ship. Amongst the photos are early pre-War photos of Conning Towers, with their U-Boat designation number, and wartime ones with the different Submarines' artwork.

Of special note is the celebratory photo of Gunther Prien (the Hero of Scapa Flow) with his crew on the deck of U47. In the background, you can see the Kriegsmarine Sailing School ship Horst Wessel. Another shows a U-Boat arriving back in harbour, with its victory tonnage pennants. Another shows the crew all wearing black berets.

These photos give a testimony of the crews and merit further research, as 8 out 10 U-Boat crews died during WWII. There are 21 photos in all.
