For the nextfifteen months, under the sure hand of Captain Nerger, she cruised the oce ans of the world, laying mines and destroying 135,000 tons of shipping." - from the dj.

"In the autumn of 1943 the Germans intr oduced a new weapon to the sea war, It was the gnat, an acoustic homing torpedo fired from a U-boat, and , and leaving the wolf packs to slaughter theunprotected Atlantic convoys. Admiral Dönitz thus hoped to reverse the dis astrous U-boat losses of earlier in that year and regain supremacy in the Battle of the Atlantic. Yet Allied air and sea forces proceeded to sink thirty-four 34 U-boats in just forty-four days! This achievement is examined indetail. For the first time the U-boat successes, some very great, and thei r failures are fully described in a narrative style. Many U-boats were sunkby the combination of American, British and Canadian aircraft. Avenger, Bi sley, Fortress, Halifax, Hudson, Liberator, Mariner, Mitchell, Sunderland, Ventura and Wellington aircraft all achieved successes, The little ships came into their own also, as sinkings were attributed to corvette, destroyer,frigate, sloop, trawler and even submarine. The sheer variety of achieveme nts provides a fascinating story for those interested in U-boats, the air war or the sea war." - front dj flap. Contents : 1. Failed to Return; 2. TheFiftieth Month; 3.
