GERMAN U-BOAT ACE ADALBERT SCHNEE:
The Patrols of U-201 in World War II
Luc Braeuer
• Illustrated biography of legendary U-201 commander Adalbert Schnee, the specialist in convoy attacks
• Over 200 exceptional photos, set out chronologically by patrol
• Discover the fate of one of the German U-boat aces, who sailed in all U-Boat types from 1940-1945
Few commanders symbolize the evolution of the German U-boat arm during the Second World War as
does Adalbert “Adi” Schnee. In 1940, Schnee successively commanded three Type II U-boats—U-6, U-60
and U-121— in which he registered his first successes in the Atlantic. From the beginning of 1941, he was
appointed commander of U-201, the first Type VIICU-boat allotted to I Flotilla. During seven patrols with
this U-Boot, which would take him to the coasts of America and Africa, he would receive the Knight’s Cross
with Oak Leaves. With 15 ships sunk in convoys in the mid-Atlantic, he became the specialist in this form
of attack. Commanding U-2511 in May 1945, he alone carried out an actual combat mission in the Type
XXI U-boat. With the aid of logbooks and the recent discovery of a considerable collection of images from
a war correspondent on one of U-201’s missions, this book examines Schnee’s incredible combat career.

GERMAN U-BOAT ACE ROLF MÜTZELBURG:
The Patrols of U-203 in World War II
Luc Braeuer
• An illustrated biography with more than 240 exceptional photographs, set out chronologically by patrol
• Discover the eleven combat missions of U-203, a German Type VIIC U-boat
• Learn the story of Rolf Mützelburg, one of the most highly decorated U-boat commanders
German naval officer Rolf Mützelburg was one of the outstanding figures of theWWII German U-boat arm.
After obtaining regular successes against the North Atlantic convoys during his first four missions, he found
new victims directly along the shores of Canada. Mützelburg received the highest decorations of the period
and became one of the top U-boat aces. Furthermore, he shared with Adalbert Schnee, Teddy Suhren, and
Erich Topp, the rare privilege of being affectionately nicknamed by Admiral Dönitz as “The Four Aces.”The
discovery of a photo album from a U-203 crew member, complemented by images sourced at the U-Boat
Archive at Cuxhaven, allows us to illustrate the astonishing history of this U-boat with 240 photographs and
documents. The eleven combat missions of U-203 are precisely described thanks to numerous maps and
sketches and the complete translation of its logbook.
