Germany's U-85 A Shadow In The Sea - A Diver's Reflections

Postby SkyPilot » Thu Nov 16, 2006 12:41 am

I recently received a review copy of this book. For anyone who enjoys U-boat history and wreck diving here's a fascinating look at the story of U-85, her captain and crew, and the diving and adventure that have followed. U-85 was sunk April 14, 1942 by the U.S.S. Roper 15 miles northeast of Oregon Inlet North Carolina. The author has made over 500 dives on the U-85 over the last 20 years and has done extensive research in its history from the time its keel was laid, until it became the first German U-boat engaged on the surface by U.S. Navy warships during World War Two. Large format hard cover, 96 pages, 99 photos, both color and archival b&w of the U-boat and crew, many drawings and diagrams. NEW condition autographed by the author.

NEW condition $25.00 available at Torpedo Junction: or email to: books(at)
