LES SOUS-MARINS ITALIENS EN FRANCE: Grandeur Et Servitude Italienne, Atlantique Et Ocean Indien, 1940-1943.
Yet the History of the U-Boots which operated from France is well known, the history of those Bordeaux-based Italian submarines remains obscure. Their contribution to the so-called Battle of the Atlantic was nevertheless far from ridiculous. For instance the Da Vinci sank 16 merchant ships, totalling 116 686 tons and the Tazzoli, was responsible for the loss of 18 such ships for 96 553. This richly illustrated book depicts the history of these 32 submarines of the BETASOM till September 1943.
