Pressestimmen

"Randy Bradham did a great service by writing this book. Many of our colleagues from World War II are not around anymore, and for this veteran to step back and relate what happened 60 years ago is a most unexpected gift to our nation. I know veterans will want to read this; but I hope all Americans, especially the children, will read it so they understand the sacrifices their grandparents made so that future generations can enjoy the freedoms on which our country was founded."-Senator Ernest F. Hollings D-South Carolina

Synopsis

The French naval bases at St. Nazaire and Lorient, occupied by the Germans in June 1940, quickly became the home of massive U-boat fortresses. From these bases, U-boats struck merchant shipping at will from the Mediterranean to the North Sea. As a result, the RAF began an all-out bombardment of the two ports.

Needs A Different Title 20. Mai 2004
Von American Expat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
If your interests lie in the area of military battles and the people that fought in them then this will be a good source of information for you. However, the title should've been "The Battle For Hitler's U-Boat Fortesses". The title mislead me into thinking that this was about the U-Boat pens themselves. I was fully expecting information on the design, logistics, service records, and daily life that would be associated with these structures. I would not have purchased this book had I known the contents.

A Gem of a History Book 11. Dezember 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Hitler's U-Boat Fortresses is a caprivating, eye-witness account by a World War II participant of the Allies' campaign to capture the German U-Boat pens on the coast of Brittany. These submarine pens were active and responsible for sinking a massive amount of Allied ships right up until armistice. As very little has been written about the Allied campaigns in Brittany and their importance to the overall European war effort, this book is essential for any reader of history.

Excellant acccount of WWll Battle of Brittany, France 10. Juni 2005
Von Edward E. Moore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is a captivating account of the events surrounding the most important u-boat bases in Brittany,France . The book is highly researched and detailed but in a manner that is most interesting and easy to read. There are eye-witness acccounts of events of young soldiers including the author's narrow escape from death,including little known information of the French resistence. This is an excellent book written by an outstanding American of The Greatest Generation.

A Must Read For Anyone Interested In WWII And The GI 1. Mai 2005
Von JQ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A gripping window into the battle for the Nazi uboat pens told from the perspective of a soldier. The author not only skillfully informs the reader of this little known campaign in captivating text, but provides numerous entertaining stories about the human side of young American men thrust into an epic battle in a strange land. A must read for anyone interested in WWII and the American soldier.
Troubled Fortresses 29. August 2012
Von Pablo Calahorra Gonzalez - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I don't know why some people calls this book a "gem", unless their concept of the word emphasizes the more mineral aspects of Dr Bradham's very minor opus. Obviously I disagree with the five stars category given by some reviewers, but everybody can heap praise on those titles he/she likes, which it is not my case.
First of all as some other reviewers have pointed, the title is misleading: the coverage of the U Boat bases is quite reduced (those with a particular interest on the subject can find of interest the book of the same title in the Osprey "Fortress" series), even worse is the fact that there is almost no material about the layout or description of the fortresses which surrounded the ports used by the germans as U boot bases (again other titles can solve this gap: Rudi Rolf "Fortress Europa" or the Kaufmann books). The worst is the schematic description of the military operations around those "Festungen", the coverage of the french military units which took part is limited to some anecdotes, which tends to suggest that its participation was a minor affair, again this is untrue. The reader looking for coverage of the operations against the southern festungen (Grave-Royan, Oleron, Ile de Re, La Rochelle-La Pallice) is going to feel very disappointed, as was my case. Nothing is said of the Royan amphibious operation, which employed several thousands of troops mainly french units.
The book which is clearly amateurish, offers some interesting photos and sometimes valuable material, dispersed thru its pages. In my opinion however its worst flaws are the lack of a coherent structure which makes it difficult to read and boring and a title which is sadly misleading: it promises a lot but deliveres little. If the writer had chosen another title for his remembrance of world war two, perhaps it would have been less disappointing.
