Language: N/A. Brand New Book. Never previously published in this format, documents once stamped ?secret? have been sourced from Britannia Royal Naval College?s Library. These include reports, maps and plans drawn up by serving Royal Navy Officers during and immediately after World War II. Hitler?s Ghost Ships recounts the war against British commerce was the primary task of the German submarines, who hoped to strangle Britain?s imports of food and war materials. Disguised Auxiliary cruisers could sidle up to merchant vessels undetected as they were flying a neutral flag, similar to 17th century pirate ships. Completion of the disguised ships was difficult and took its toll on the German dockyard workers and crews, sailing in waters dominated by the Royal Navy. The Battle Summaries chart how the Royal Navy dealt with the threat of these raiders. The foreword is by Admiral Sir Jonathon Band, former First Sea Lord and Chief of Naval Staff. The introduction, by Dr G H Bennett, expertly guides the reader through a level of detail that does not appear in post-war accounts, putting these actions in context.
