WAR OF THE U-BOATS:
BRITISH MERCHANTMEN UNDER FIRE
From the earliest days of the
Second World War, Hitler's U-Boats were unleashed with the
mission to sink as much Allied merchant tonnage as possible.
From the sinking of the Glasgow-based ship, Olivegrove by
U-23, to the end of hostilities, officers and seamen of the
Merchant Marine played a key role in winning the war. The
most dangerous were the U-Boats but there were also surface
raiders and aircraft. All too often the result was the
tragic loss of the crew as well as the vital cargo, but
as described in this book gallantry against overwhelming
odds brought great rewards.
This is the story of the "Handschar", the Muslim combat
formation created by the Germans to "restore order in
Bosnia." Raised by the Waffen SS, they were used for
anti-partisan operations in the Balkans and quickly
developed a reputation. The division was commanded by German
officers, and composed of native Germans from
Croatia(Volksdeutsche), Croat Christians and Bosniaks,
Muslims from Bosnia and Herzegovina.
