Descripton: Excellent book! More than 80 photos, a list of known crew members 1930-1944, and fascinating reading. One example is the occasion (5 November 1942) when Vetehinen deliberately rammed(!) the Soviet submarine Sjtsja 305, after having missed with two torpedoes fired from a distance of around 250 meters, and opening fire with both the 76 mm and 20 mm cannons! The Soviet submarine sank, the Finnish U-boat developed a leak (naturally!), but was repaired in Åbo (Turku) 15-22 November 1942…. The book also lists ten Soviet books used in Chapter 16: Soviet Naval History.
