New U-Boat Book: 4th U-Flottille Guest Book


Recommended Posts

My friend Matt brought this book back from the Stuttgart show. It is a reprint of the 4th U-Flottille guest book, once owned by Kai Winkler. I love this book - it has fabulous hand-drawn artwork and inscriptions from some of the War's most famous boats. Since this was a training flotilla, a large number of boats passed through. Some of the best-known include: Tr?ger des Eichenlaubs zum Ritterkreuz Henke (U 515) und Guggenberger (U 513), die Ritterkreuztr?ger Lemp (U 30), M?ller-St?ckheim (U 67), v. Schr?ter (U 123), Folkers (U 125), Achilles (U 161), L?th (U 181), Maus (U 185), Bargsten (U 521) und Hechler (U 870). This list is taken from VD Medien's website, who sells the book.

Here is the cover.

Nesredep,

Thank you for your comment. The original guest book is indeed quite rare. I would mortgage my house for a real one (if the wife didn't stop me first). However, the reprint is available for less than the cost of a house... :jumping:

Best Regards,

Erik

Richard,

Glad that you liked the book! I wanted to give a heads-up to U-Boat collectors who might be interested. I was not aware that this had been published until my friend brought me a copy back from Germany.

All The Best,

Erik

Hi Erik. I just received my copy of "Unsere Gaste" today from KW. Great book. Thanks for pointing it out here in this forum.
