186 HASKELL, W.A. ROHWER, Jurgen, foreword Shadows on the Horizon : The Battle of Convoy HX-233. iFirst Edition n dustjacket
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 black and white. 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine.

"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.

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.

Werner Hirschmann (b. in March 1923 in Dusseldorf, Germany).

"As a boy growing up in Germany, Werner Hirschmann was fascinated with stories of naval heroes. built ship models, and dreamed of going to sea. In 1940, he was accepted as an officer cadet in the Kriegsmarine, the German navy, and after years of rigorous training, became an engineer officer in the elite U-Boot-Waffe or submarine service.

Using his wartime diaries and his remarkable photograph albums, as well as historical documents, Werner Hirschmann recounts the many interesting episodes in his naval career, including serving on a destroyer that escorted Bismarck on her last operation, U-boat operations in the Atlantic and Mediterranean, being besieged by the Americans at the U-boat base at Lorient in France, and his last patrol to North America in 1945, on which his submarine, U-190, sank HMCS Esquimalt, the last Canadian warship to be lost during the war.

In Another Place, Another Time, Hirschmann provides a unique view of the day-to-day life of a U-boat officer who, like young men on both sides, did his best to enjoy life while trying to do his duty. An epilogue describes his postwar life as a prisoner-of-war in Canada and Britain and his subsequent move to Canada, where he pursued a successful career and eventually became an honorary member of the veterans' association of HMCS Esquimalt.

A key feature for the many readers interested in Second World War submarines is the technical section that provides a detailed pictorial tour of the Type IX/C40 U-boat, including many previously unpublished photographs discovered in Canadian archives." - from the dj.

Fascinating vignettes of individuals, events, and life afloat in peace and war are drawn from numerous contemporary sources such as logs and journals.
