Sea Wolves - The Donitz & Prien Tribute Edition by Nicholas Trudgian
The Donitz & Prien Tribute Edition
by Nicholas Trudgian
Captain Erich Topp steers his Type VIIc U-Boat U-552 ' Red Devil ' towards the sanctuary of the base at St. Nazaire after another patrol during the gruelling Battle of the Atlantic in 1942. In the skies above, heading back out to hostile waters, is a giant Focke Wulf 200 Condor from III/KG40 and three Ju88Ds from KGr 106 whose missions will be to search for vulnerable Allied convoys for the submarine ' Wolf Packs ' to attack.
Winston Churchill called the Condor " the scourge of the Atlantic ", recognising the essential role it played in the German campaign to cut Britain's convoy supply lines. With the sinking of more than 3,500 merchant ships and 175 warships the Germans nearly succeeded, but improved Allied techniques in finding and destroying U-Boats led to a war of attrition resulting in the loss of no fewer than 738 U-Boats and 28,000 German sailors.
Captain Topp was fortunate to survive and become the third highest scoring U-Boat ace. Whilst commanding the ' Red Devil ' he sank a total of thirty ships and damaged three more.
