This is the story of German U-boat U564, which sortied into the Atlantic on 11 July 1942 for a World War II mission and returned to port on 18 September 1942. There are many photographs in the book; in fact, the coincidental recovery of the photos is the primary reason the book was published. They were found in the U-boat bunks in Brest, France, soon after Allied troops occupied the town. The soldier who found them kept them in his house in England for about 50 years until they were rescued by the author.

The Hidden Photographic Diary of U564. 2004, Greenhill Publishing ISBN 185367575X Hardcover, over 250 photos. This is the story of one war patrol of U-564 under the command of Reinhard 'Teddy' Suhren, richly illustrated with photographs taken by the war correspondent who accompanied the boat on her mission. For more than half a century, these photographs had been in the private possession of a Royal Navy diver, who had discovered them while clearing debris from the harbor at Brest after its evacuation by the Germans, and had carried them home with him after the war.

Housed at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport, England, the Appleyard Collection contains some 360 b&w photographs taken aboard the German U 564 during the course of a single patrol in the summer of 1942. In this volume, independent scholar Paterson presents many of these photographs and uses them to piece together the story of that patrol. He also provides background information on the ship's captain, Reinhard "Teddy" Suhren in the introduction. Paterson is the author of three books on U-boats.

This book is based on 361 previously forgotten photographs from a single sortie made by U564 to the Caribbean made in the summer of 1942. The photographs were originally “liberated” by a British officer from a U-boat bunker sometime towards the end of WWII, sometime after the bunker fell to the allies. The pictures turned up in 2000. This book, in a nutshell, consists of these photographs supplemented by text surrounding the sortie. The text has been written by Lawrence Patterson, an eminent U-boat historian. It goes in depth on both the photographs and the sortie. The photographs are discussed in detail (i.e., maintenance of engine and batteries, gunnery drills, etc.). The sortie is also discussed in depth. This is not only from the perspective of the U-boat crew, its log and the German archives but also from the archives of the US and Britain. Hence the reader learns what the Germans believed had happened but also what actually did. For example the tonnage of the vessels actually sank. Another example involved a fire that broke out on the submarine while being chased on the surface and continuing while under water and being depth charged. The Germans, after miraculously surviving the underwater fire and depth charging, had believed that the allied destroyers had given up but the reality was that they had given up because they thought they had destroyed the submarine instead. Very well researched. In addition to the photographs and sortie, the crew and captain are discussed. One learns the surprising fact that so many of these crew members survived the war, unlike so many of their comrades in the U-boat service (about three-quarters of those who served U-boats did not survive the war).

In short, a very good book for the U-boat aficionado. The only weakness of the book, a major one considering that the photographs are the core of this book, is the fact that the book is printed on cheap newspaper quality paper as opposed to fine plastic coated paper that would have highlighted the photographs. The use of higher quality paper would have increased the price of the book but considering the fact that the pictures are the center of the book this would have been justified. It’s a shame the publisher, the Naval Institute Press, did not do this.

This is a good book that centers around the sixth war patrol of U-564 under the command of Reinhard "Teddy" Suhren (this was also Suhren's last war patrol). The book gives good background on Suhren and the men serving under him on the boat, and then gives great detail about the whole patrol of U-564. A German propaganda journalist went with them on this specific patrol and the accompanying photographs are excellent. They and the book gives a very good glimpse on what life must have been like on a U-boat during a war patrol across the Atlantic and into the Caribbean. The book also tells of the hardships faced by the sailors on a daily basis and their camaraderie during these trying times. The epilogue also tells what happened to Suhren, his boat and certain individuals in his crew. A must for U-boat enthusiasts.

One of the most interesting books on the U-Boat arm and the men who manned the boats. The author does a great job of writting the narrative to go with the huge collection of photo taken by a war photographer. The photos recently turned up and this book gives the reader a good perspective of what life ws like on a Type Vll U-Boat. Captained by Knights Cross winner, Reinhard "Teddy" Suhren, one of the most successful U-Boat commanders of the war, life aboard 564 was hard, but not without fun time. The patrol takes place in the summer of 1942, when U-Boats were still the hunters and not the hunted, so many interesting activities occured when the boat was on the surface. Suhren's greeting to fellow U-Boat Commander,Horst "Hein" Uphoff, of U-84,upon his return to Brest is funny and quite amazing, considering the time and place. A must read for all those interested in the Battle of the Atlantic.

This is an outstanding book on so many levels. Paterson has taken a set of long-lost photographs and painstakingly researched the details of the long war patrol on which they were taken. What emerges is a compeltely engrossing account of the U-boatman's war, with the daily routine described in as much detail as the terrifying moments of high drama. But this is also a human story, especially of the outstanding leadership qualities of the remarkable commander of U-564 at the time, Reinhard 'Teddy' Suhren. If you have even a passing interest in the 'Grey Wolves', you will enjoy this fantastic book. Very highly recommended.
A great blend of photographs and the story of one war patrol. If you enjoyed U BOAT WARS by Buchheim then this is a must book.. Out of my 50 books on U Boats I would rank this in the top five...
