Defeat at Sea, Bekker, C.D.
1 Bekker, C.D. Defeat at Sea
U.S. Ballantine Books, Inc. 1955 #183. First Ballantine Book Edition. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good Plus. 
$.35 is the original price. 184 pages. Mostly light beige paper. Tight binding. Yellow colour on the edges.
Frtont Cover: A couple of curved indents are at the top right corner but they're very light and nothing serious. A couple of finger indents from opening the Cover are at the middle of the right edge.
Spine: A couple of minute tears are at the bottom edge and a tiny piece of Cover's missing at the top right of the Spine.
Back Cover: Five or six finger indents and four or five tiny dot indents. So so marks.
Story: The Germany Navy from 1939 to the 1945 end of the war. They mention their new subs at the end of the book. Probably the U.S. and Brits used the information they got from the Germans just as they used the German rocket Scientist information. I think that we were lucky we were able to out produce the Germans or we'd be speaking German today and working as Slaves for the Master Race. Nicht wahr? 004728

Back Cover: A couple of creases and a couple of slide mark scuffing lines. The top left corner's creased about " - wide. Some slight wear's at the left and right edges.
In General: The pages are quite flexible and his Story's interesting with not much self - patting on his back for this or that the soldiers and sailors deserve credit for doing as usually they do all the heavy lifting everywhere and the "Boss" assumes credit for sitting in his comfy Offices while they get killed fighting. War isn't a pretty thing.
This is Volume two and carries Cunningham's Autobiography from April, 1941 to August, 1945. It's detailed but quite readable. Recommended. 004696
