Book Description

With "you are there" realism and total authenticity, Grey Wolf, Grey Sea takes the reader aboard the German U-Boat 124 in World War II.

From the day of her commissioning to the day when she was sunk by a British escort destroyer, this is a story of daily life in the cramped and complicated quarters of a submarine, of the crewmen and officers who made U-124 one of the most effective and famous of all submarines to see action oneither side, and of the excitement and the terror of the perilous war undersea.

Based on official German records and the vivid recollections of those who served on U-124 and sruvived, Grey Wolf, Grey Sea is as close a picture as we will ever have of the men who fought and died in the German U-Boat service.
