The German Fleet at War relates the little-known history of the Kriegsmarine's surface fleet with a focus on the sixty-nine surface naval battles fought by Germany's major warships against the large warships of the British, French, American, Polish, Soviet, Norwegian and Greek navies. It emphasizes operational details but also paints a broad overview of the naval war. German Fleet is a serious, well researched work, but the pacing is rapid and appeals to all level of readers.
German Fleet addresses the lack of information about the specifics of naval engagements in World War II. Histories emphasize famous actions, like those involving Bismarck or Graf Spee, at the expense of equally interesting, but obscure actions. This distorts the record and an understanding of the war at sea. German Fleet is a reference work. It relates in both tabular and narrative format details that do not appear in any other single volume available in English. It provides a database of naval engagements for comparison and analysis, but unlike most reference works, it has a continuous narrative and a theme. The result is a unique overview of the German and Allied navies at war that provides new appreciation of their activities and accomplishments.
