|0||Throughout the book, most of the time, but not all of the time, the author refers to U-boat commanders by their terminal rank, rather than by their rank at the time of the event being discussed, which is misleading. In a few cases, a commander is referred to by terminal rank on one page, and rank contemporary with the event described on another.||For example: On page 23, which deals with Convoy SC 2, September 1940, Otto Kretschmer's rank is given as Korvettenkapitän. On page 35, in a description of an event one month later, Kretschmer's rank is given as Kapitänleutnant.|
