SUPPLIERS OF THE GREY WOLVES THE STORY OF THE GERMAN SUBMARINE TANKERS 1941-44

Book Type: C,O

by Axel Urbanke

To the Allies they were target number one - the German submarine tankers. In 1942 the submarine tankers were able to rendezvous with the combat submarines at prearranged locations largely undisturbed. In 1943, however, all this changed. From the beginning of the year, the Allies succeeded in decoding German radio transmissions and from these intercepts learned where the tankers and operational boats would be meeting. From then on the tankers were hunted down relentlessly. Wherever the “milk cows” surfaced, Allied anti-submarine groups were waiting.The submarine tankers carried sufficient fuel, provisions, torpedoes and spare parts for up to 24 U-boats, doubling or tripling their normal endurance. The “milk cows” also carried a doctor who could treat sick or injured crewmen. In the end, all of the submarine tankers were sunk by the Allies, the last in the summer of 1944. Hundreds of men went down with the submarines. The story of the ten German submarine tankers in the Second World War has never been thoroughly documented in words and pictures. This book describes the difficult submarine tanker operations and the war waged by the crews against the power of the sea and the Allied anti-submarine forces and thus fills a significant gap in the history of the German submarine arm. 305 photos including 5 in colour, 33 colour maps and 9 colour profiles.Includes Data CD with detailed supply data and a total index for the book. 336 pages.
