HADLEY, Michael L. and Roger SARTY. Tin-Pots and Pirate Ships : Canadian Naval Forces and German Sea Raiders 1880-1918. Montreal / Kingston : McGill-Queen's University Press, (1991). First Edition. Pp [i]-viii,[1]-391,(1) + 16 pages of plates & maps. Index. 8vo, red cloth, silver lettering to spine.Michael L. Hadley (b. 1956). Roger Flynn Sarty (b. September 27, 1952, Hal ifax, Nova Scotia). "Michael Hadley and Roger Sarty shed new light on Canadian and German history -- and on Canada's naval defences in particular -- by exploring the naval operations and politics of both nations between 1880 and 1918. Beginning with Canada's feeling of "Splendid Isolation" and Germany's imperial ambitions against North America, the authors' intriguing and graphic account takes us from the early turmoil of federal politics in Canada to the conflict of the Great War and the eventual mothballing of the Canadian fleet. Having conducted an exhaustive study of Canadian, German, American, and British sources -- many of which have not been examined before --Hadley and Sarty evaluate such major issues as policies and practice; inte lligence schemes and spy scares; naval bills and the Dreadnought crisis; U-boats, commercial submarines, undersea cruisers, and surface raiders; and coastal patrols and convoy protection. Many factors that were believed to have been responsible for shaping -- and misshaping -- the Canadian Navy of 1939-45 are shown to have been in play during the First World War. Tin-Pots and Pirate Ships reveals the Canadian tradition of building a fleet only when needed, dismantling it once the conflict is over, and ultimately accepting terms dictated by alliance partners." - from the dj.

In addition to this, there runs throughout a continuous description of British warship types slightly historical in nature, which shows how the various classes of fighting ships have been evolved into their present guise thrrough a period ot years.

The Author is well known for his researches into ail matters connected with ship types, and this represents his latest work." - from the jacket [NOTE : the jacket is not present with this copy].

Mochitsura Hashimoto (b. 1909, Kyot o – d. October 25, 2000, Kyoto). "What happened to Japan's submarine fleet in World War II? Did Japan not build the largest type submarine in the world; did she not originate the human torpedo and the midget launched from a parent submarine, did she not operate aircraft-carrying submarines for reconnaissance? This account of the operations of the submarine ffleet in World War II by the man who sank the U.S. cruiser Indianapolis carries a recommendation as "an excellent history, well recorded" by the former C-in-C Combined Fleet, Imperial Japanese Navy. Captain Hashimoto, one of the few Japanese submarine commanders to survive the war, tells the story of the neet wnich was wiped out and as an experienced officer, gives his reasons for the dismal failure. Full of confidence in the opening stages, the submarines met the first setback in Pearl Harbour, where the midget submarines, which wereintended to loose havoc among the eight battleships reported at anchor, la iied to produce a single casualty. Hashimoto was there! From that time it became a battle, says Hashimoto, between binoculars and radar — for th Japanese had not even this vital equipment — and by the end of the war the submarines had been relegated to supply-carrying and to the launching of human torpedoes. A torpedo torpedo officer when war broke out, the author subsequently commanded four submarines but his book is not simply an account of hisown exploits. From official records and survivors' stories he has pieced t ogether the stories of many submarines in many parts of the theaire of war ^and the operations he describes range from the Pacific Ocean to the IndianOcean, from the American coast to the North Sea. And from these descriptio ns of the Japanese in action emerges an oddly contrasted picture ot fanaticism and panic, of death welcomed with pride, of suicide rather than capture, and of fear and hysteria in the privacy of the deep. The book enas with appendices, supplied by the author, giving summaries of the Japanese submarine campaign; details of Japanese submarines built before and during the war; details of ships sunk by submarines and a record of Japan's own submarinelosses." from the jacket.

Chatham Publishing, London, 1998, ISBN:1861760817 1998 1861760817 / 9781861760814 
HASKELL, W.A. Shadows on the Horizon : The Battle of Convoy HX-233. Foreword by Prof. Dr. Jürgen Rohwer. London: Chatham Publishing, (1998). First Printing. Pp. (6),7-192. Illustrated in b&w (photos, maps, &c). 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine.

Winthrop Allison Haskell (b. July 23, 1923, Newton, Middlesex, Massachusetts) was living in Germany at the time of publication.

"This book tells the saga of a German front-line U-boat, U-175, which, with her compatriots, very nearly severed Britain's lifeline across the Atlantic, and which culminated in a critical battle around Convoy HX-233 in the Spring of 1943.

The author was a witness to the battle and this, combined with the meticulous research of original documents and his use of eye witness accounts from both the Allied and German sides, has resulted in a quite remarkable piece of work in which no stone has been left unturned in his desire to reconstruct exactly what happened both to the U-boats and their quarry in the crucial months of 1943.

But the book is much more than a description of a single battle, for the author takes this particular event as a microcosm to explain the strategic and tactical background, the technical developments on both sides, and the operational experiences that occurred thoughout the whole of the War. He is particularly astute at evaluating both the US and British contributions to the Atlantic convoy battles and explaining the logistical problems faced by the Kriegsmarine. - from the dust jacket.

(HESSLER, Gunter, Fregattenkapitan). German Naval History ; The U-Boat War in the Atlantic 1939-1945. Facsimile Edition with Introduction by Lieutenant Commander Andrew J. Withers. London : Her Majesty's Stationery Office, (1989). Pp [i]-x,1-119,(1),[i]-xii, 1-126,[i]-x,1-151, (3),+ separate wallet containing 5 large folding sheets incorporating diagrams 1-32 from the original volumes. 4to, navy cloth, gilt lettering to spine, text volume and wallet in a pictorial paper covered slipcase. "After the end of the Second World War, Fregattenkapitan Gunter Hessler (a son-in-law of Donitz) was given free access to the war diaries and other primary sources of the German Navyto write a history and analysis of the German U-Boat offensive in the Atla ntic. It covered many aspects, such as general strategy, signals intelligence, tactics and weapons, adopting a largely German viewpoint. It also investigated Allied countermeasures and the response of the U-Boat Command. Written at the request of the Admiralty, the three-volume work was classified material, never available to the general public. This facsimile edition of the volumes, with a fresh introduction by Lt Cdr Andrew Withers, is a valuable addition to the published history of the war, and contains information available nowhere else. Corrections and explanations have been added to the original text - incidents puzzling Hessler can be better understood, for example, now that we have the full story of British Intelligence Work in deciphering German Signals. For students of military, naval or intelligence history The U-Boat War in the Atlantic is a unique account, not least because the many charts and diagrams allow the record of each U-Boat to be traced, including its deployment on any particular day." - from the slipcase. Very good in slipcase. 125.00
