I know U-Boat Commanders used a ship identification book during patrols. You often see them using the book during propaganda films.

Does anyone know of a website that shows the original book? Or has anyone ever seen one?

The U-Boat Commander's Handbook has been reprinted in English for sale. It would be awesome if someone did the same for the ID Book. (Yes, I know about the one for the game and I got one too_..... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

maybe they used a version of Janes fighting ships. I dont think that was just limited to the allied side. I have a copy of it,its huge and covers every navy in the world. Its called "Janes figthing ships of ww2". obviously it wouldnt have been called that during ww2 but it does the job.
