Review

Mushroom Model Publications is based in the UK. Their books are all printed by their partner Stratus in Sandomierz, Poland in the English language. Stratus also prints these books in Polish. This new book was sent to me directly from Stratus in a heavily padded envelope. The book is in soft cover and is 180 pages long in 8 ½ x 11” size page format.

Austrian submarines of World War I were known as “U-boots”, an a breviation of Unterseeboot. This book details the history of the development and operational use by the Austro-Hungarian navy of submarines in WWI. German use of submarines in WWI is well known – this is the fascinating and little-known history of their major ally’s activities in undersea warfare. It contains descriptions and specifications of all the boats involved.

It is profusely illustrated with 144 black and white photos (10 of these are portraits of significant individuals), 7 black and white copies of paintings and scale drawings of the submarines used. Although, no scale is indicated as to what scale these drawings are. The book contains 18 chapters, appendices, the scale drawings just mentioned, bibliography and ship’s index. In the appendices are 11 information lists. The only color in the book is the cover art.

This book will prove to be an invaluable addition to the literature on WWI marine subjects. It will be of interest to enthusiasts, historians and scale modelers.

Highly recommended.

I want to thank Mushroom Model Publications (MMP) and Casemate for this review sample.
