Enigma U-boats : breaking the code : the true story by Jak P. Mallmann Showell( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After World War I, German admirals were shocked to discover that the Royal Navy had penetrated their secret radio codes and the new, post-war navy set about creating a system so secure that such a breach would never occur again. The result was the now famous Enigma - the Impenetrable Puzzle. This machine was so complex that it was thought no one could break into it; not even when they had a captured machine at their disposal. The German High Command was convinced that the system was wholly secure and totally impregnable." "Their supreme confidence was, however, misplaced. During World War Two, Polish cryptanalysts helped Britain to break into the Enigma system used by the Luftwaffe and Army, but the naval version was more complicated. Even so, British cryptanalysts persevered and in the end they did manage the impossible; to break into this most complicated of ciphers. As a result they helped many merchant convoys avoid the teeth of the Wolf Packs." "This book describes the story of how the tools for this incredible effort were extracted from the U-boats themselves. With a detailed analysis of the development of Enigma, its role during U-boat operations and the subsequent code-breaking at Bletchley Park, this book will be essential for all those fascinated by this enigmatic tool." --Book Jacket

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite being heavily outnumbered by the navies of Great Britain and the United States, the German navy proved to be a serious adversary. Its major warships posed a constant threat to the Allied shipping lanes, and its U-boats in the North Atlantic threatened the very liberation of Europe. This important work explains why Hitler s navy was such a potent force. An indispensable guide to the ships, organization, command and rank structure, and leaders of the Kriegsmarine, the book s detailed text studies the navy from World War I to the collapse of the U-boat offensive and the demise of the Third Reich. More than 350 photos, many never before published, along with maps and diagrams, story updates and expands the author's 1979 title, The German Navy in World War Two, for a new generation of readers.

Dönitz, U-boats, convoys : the British version of his memoirs from the Admiralty's secret anti-submarine reports by Jak P. Mallmann Showell( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The memoirs of Admiral Karl Dönitz, Ten Years and Twenty Days, are a fascinating first-hand account of the Battle of the Atlantic as seen from the headquarters of the U-boat fleet. Now, for the first time noted naval historian Jak P. Mallmann Showell has combined Dönitz''s memoirs in a parallel text with the British Admiralty''s secret Monthly Anti-Submarine Reports to produce a unique view of the U-boat war as it was perceived at the time by both sides. The British Monthly Anti-Submarine Reports were classified documents issued only to senior officers hunting U-boats, and were supposed to hav
Swastikas in the Arctic : U-boat alley through the frozen hell by Jak P. Mallmann Showell( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the Second World War, the Arctic saw an unusually high intensity of action, adventure, excitement and tragedy, and Swastikas in the Arctic : U-Boat Alley Through the Frozen Hell describes the German military activities in that harsh frozen hell. Based mainly on original logs, the bare facts have been fleshed out with help from veterans and researchers from the United States, Iceland, Britain, Norway, Germany and Russia. This has made it possible to describe some of the now forgotten battles, the secret U-boat activities, the German struggle to broadcast essential weather data to Berlin and the incredible surface ship activity that forced Britain to launch major offensives against heavy odds. The Arctic also saw intense British efforts to help with the cracking of the highly complicated Enigma radio code. Many studies of the Second World War give scant attention to activity in this ice-studded ocean. However, as becomes apparent reading this book, those who fought, suffered and died there were shot at and bombed more heavily than in any other theater of war and the contribution they made influenced military actions far away in warmer regions. Gloriously illustrated with many unpublished photographs, Swastikas in the Arctic : U-Boat Alley Through the Frozen Hell is a thrilling account of a war fought in very difficult circumstances"--Publisher description
