The Type XXI U-boat was one of the few types of weapon that, despite being unable to take part in combat, completely changed the character of naval actions at sea. It was the first true submarine in history. The other types of vessels designed so far were basically "diving ships" that might have been underwater for some time, but most of the time they had to be on the surface because their underwater range was severely limited. Under water they were slow and not maneuverable, and often had to emerge onto the surface to charge their electric batteries. The Type XXI was designed from the outset as a true submarine whose natural environment was to be the deep seas.


“You get angles you can't really see in other references and they are in full color. If you fancy having a go at the Revell U-2540 with the cut-away interior, the 3D interior illustrations in this book are essential. This being the sixtieth volume, they have managed to cover quite a few ships. If you have any of their previous books in the Super Drawings in 3D series, you know how great a value this book is. Highly Recommended!”
