More than 700 Type VII U-boats were built for the German navy during World War II, making it the most produced submarine type in history. They formed the backbone of the Kreigsmarine, wreaking havoc throughout the Atlantic and Baltic, even sinking Allied ships along the U.S. eastern seaboard and in the Gulf of Mexico. The cost was high for the U-boat crews, and many never made it home. The history and wartime record of the U-boats make them a popular subject for modelers, and kits of Type VIIs are available in nearly every popular scale from 1/700 to 1/48.

If you are looking for ideas and inspiration to build any of these, pick up a copy of Haynes Owners Workshop Manual: U-boat — 1936-45 (Type VIIA, B, C, and Type VIIC/41). Throughout the 156-page hardcover, author Alan Gallop shows what made these potent weapons tick. Scores of wartime photos and pictures taken aboard U-995, the sole remaining Type VII, show internal equipment and external details. After a history of German submarines before and during WWII, the book looks at the anatomy of Type VIIs, including plenty of detailed photos and diagrams, then discusses the subs’ armament and crew before giving a quick look at operations aboard working U-boats.

Bottom line, this is a terrific book about German submarine operations with plenty of detail to help you build a better Type VII; add this reference for your collection.
