Summary

Summary

Forced by the need to refuel a large U-boat fleet in oceans mainly controlled by Allied forces during World War II, Germany became the only nation ever to operate submarines as tankers. This book paints a dramatic picture of these tankers and their increasingly desperate crews as conditions for refueling degenerated after the Allies broke the German ciphers.
