GERMAN U-BOAT LOSSES DURING WORLD WAR II:
                                                                        DETAILS OF DESTRUCTION

 by Axel Niestle






No other publication on this subject comes even close to including the amount of detail provided in this book. An introduction summarizes previous works on the subject and describes the difficulties of obtaining and verifying information from either the Germans or the Allies on U-boat losses. The main part of the book lists by hull number each U-boat's date of commissioning, its commanding officer, and the date and port of departure for its last patrol. It also gives the date, position, and cause of loss, with complete details on Allied units involved in the sinking, the names and ranks of their commanding officers and pilots, and the number of crew killed or rescued. An appendix neatly summarises data on the disposition of surviving U-boats at the end of the war and provides valuable statistical data on German U-boat losses.

ONE SOLDIER'S WAR IN CHECHNYA

by Arkady Babchenko. Translated by Nick Allen

A compulsively readable and vivid account of life as a young soldier in Russia's Chechen wars, it takes the raw and mundane reality of days amid guns and grenades and twists it into compelling, chilling, and eerily elegant prose. Babchenko traces his journey from innocence to experience, beginning with his teenage arrival in the transit camp just north of Chechnya and harsh treatment by his seniors as a naive and scared new recruit, through to his period of active duty at the front, by which time he has become a brutalized and hardened soldier.
