Admiral Daniel V. Gallery boarded and captured a German U-Boat at sea in June, 1944 -- the first American officer to so capture an enemy warship since 1815! U-505 is Admiral Gallery's own story of his extraordinary feat -- and also a gripping narrative of the fierce Allied war against the German U-Boat fleet. "EXCELLENT." -- Chicago Tribune "Terrific ... the first-hand story of Uncle Sam's U-Boat killers." -- Chicago Daily News "Brimming with thrills." -- Philadelphia News "An engrossing tale ... Pungent, entertaining, informative." -- Navy Times "A humdinger of a sea story ... a highly readable book, trimmed from stem to stern with the writer's irrepressible sense of humor." -- Chicago Sunday Times "Excellent in several ways: it provides a fine quick survey of the whole Atlantic war, it describes the operation of the German U-boat service, and, most dramatically, it tells how an American task force under Admiral Gallery achieved the unique feat of capturing a German submarine." -- Publishers' Weekly "U-505 IS ONE OF THE WAR'S MOST EXCITING MEMOIRS." -- Chicago News "One of the best non-fiction books about World War II." -- Raleigh News & Observer "A first-rate adventure tale ... suspense and excitement told with a seaman's salty zest ... excellent reading." -- Chicago Sunday Tribune "A masterful job that merits the attention of every lover of sea stories." -- Pittsburgh Press.
