The U-Boat Commanders
Knight’s Cross Holders 1939 – 1945
by Jeremy Dixon The Knight’s Cross (Ritterkruez) was one of the highest decorations given for extreme acts of valour to all ranks of the German armed forces during the Second World War. Few awards captured the respect and admiration of the German public as the Knight’s Cross – it was the greatest honour one could achieve. This book is a highly illustrated account of German U-Boat commanders who were awarded the Knight’s Cross during the Second World War. The operations they took part in, how they won their award, the ships they sank, and their subsequent careers are all detailed. It gives a fascinating insight into the skill, determination and courage of the U-Boat commanders and their crews.
