Mortal Wound

Jacobsen, Alf R.: Banesår - Tirpitz og jakten på X5

Full title: Mortal Wound - Tirpitz and the hunt for X5

In September 1943 five submarines set out from England to sink Germany's last great battleship, Tirpitz. Alf R. Jacobsen graphically describes the attack from the British, German and Norwegian viewpoints, interweaving his dramatic story with an account of the fruitless, years-long search for a solution to the mystery of what happened to one of the submarines.

"Some sequences are so perfectly reconstructed that one can almost see the damp rising from the frost ." (Verdens Gang, Oslo)
