U-Boat Ground Forces

Post by Erich2019 » 26 Nov 2019 17:27

Hi,

Does anyone know of books published on U-Boat or KM Ground Forces that is worth getting? I know towards the end of the war, there were formations in combat outside of the Coastal Artillery Troops as well as a few who were even decorated with the Tank Destruction Badge! Thanks in advance.

Hi Pikap,

Thanks for the link and info on Cremer! I’ve compiled as much as I can from that website over the years in fear it might go down someday! It’s definitely the best for U-Boat history and crews!

Can you name some other Kriegsmarine ground forces units besides Cremer's that had entirely of U-boat crewmen? Yes several U-boat crewmen were awarded the Tank Destruction Badge.

Thank you Beate,

I have many reference books in German that are fairly easy to understand and navigate through, thankfully. Thank you for the link and I’ll definitely get this book as well.
