This is a specialised publication about German submarines in the Second World War and with the support of archives, private collectors and well-known experts in the field, the series is issued three times per year. 

Most of the photos that illustrate each edition have never before been published, and they are supplemented by informative captions and well-researched articles on all aspects of U-boat operations. The focus of our articles is on lesser-known facts and events. Each edition therefore offers the reader exclusive reading material and unique illustrations. The illustrations are of generous size and the highest quality, printed on glossy paper.

Each edition contains 50 pages, with about 60 photos including several in colour, plus 2 to 3 colour side-views and drawings of conning towers.
