Sabotage Unter Wasser, M Jung

Sabotage Unter Wasser, German combat swimmers in World War 2
Michael Jung

Text in German.

Elite military groups have always attracted attention, not only because of the high demands that such groups have on the body, spirit and character but also because their assignments are usually both daring and secret.

Michael Jung is and expert in this field and in this book he presents the complete history of the German combat swimmers in World War 2, whose mission it was to carry our sabotage operations in and under the water. The author uses notes of the pioneer of combat swimmers, Alfred von Wurzian who built up the Commando 700 of the Kriegsmarine in Italy from which all German combat swimmers emerged. Described are, among other things, the development of technical equipment and structure of the German combat swimmer associations as well as training and deployment.
