"Steel Boat, Iron Hearts" and "Hunt and Kill" to appear in German Language editions
A pair of our U-boat titles, Steel Boat, Iron Hearts: A U-boat Crewman's Life Aboard U-505 by Hans Goebeler with John Vanzo, and my own Hunt and Kill: U-505 and the U-boat War in the Atlantic (edited, with tremendous assistance from every chapter contributor!) will be published by Ullstein, one of Germany's finest publishing houses. (Ullstein, by way of reference, has published several editions of an earlier compilation I edited called Silent Hunters: German U-boat Commanders of World War II).
We have always worked hard to maximize our authors' work by selling into specialty markets, to book clubs, and into foreign languages whenever possible. There is always money sitting on the table with any book; the question is usually one of time, energy, and opportunity.
If you like high adventure in the form of submarine warefare, I can recommend both.
