Allied submarine operations in greece during world war ii 1941 – 1944

ALLIED SUBMARINE OPERATIONS IN GREECE
DURING WORLD WAR II 1941 – 1944

By Byron Tesapsides

I`ve just published my last book, titled „Allied Submarine Operations in Greece during World War Two“, which reports, based on the allies war diaries, regarding the operations of the following allied submarines in the Greek waters during 1941-1944:

Parthian, Osiris, Perseus, Porpoise, Proteus, Rorqual, Sea Rover, Seraph, Shakespeare, Sibyl, Sickle, Simoom, Sokol, Sportsman, Surf, Tactician, Taku, Talisman, Taurus, Tetrarch, Thorn, Thraser, Thunderbolt, Torbay, Traveller, Trespasser, Trident, Triumph, Trooper, Truant, Turbulent, Ultimatum, Ultor, Unrivalled, Unruly, Unsparing, Unserving, Untiring, Upstart, Vigorous, Virtue, Visigoth, Vivid, Voracious, Vox, Vampire, Dolffjin, Dzik, Curie, Glavkos, Katsonis, Matrozos, Nereus, Pipinos, Papanikolis and Triton.

All those mentioned allied submarines -included British, Greek, Polish, French and Dutch subs- observed enemy movements, laid mines, landed supplies and men for clandestine purposes and harassed and disrupted the traffic between the major ports and the outlying garrisons of the occupied Greek islands and the mainland. All those operations, against the Axis forces, were not only conducted against unarmed caiques but also against heavy armed war ships.

The reader will find in that book detailed reports of all the major and minor operations based on the war diaries of the allied submarines.
It is going to help every researcher and history enthusiast who is interested in the marine operations in the Greek waters during WWII.


416 pages, price 32,00 € + shipping (via courier) Greece 6,00 , Europe or USA 12,00

Hello,

Does your book cover the loss of the "Nino Bixio"?

Hi Col,

yes, it covers all the losses in the greek seas due allied submarine attacks. But "NINO BIXIO" did not sink, it was only badly damaged and was towed to Navarin.

Yassou, Bryon! I hope you cover the operations of a Greek Sub that used to patrol around the Ionian Islands (My family's home region) that was called the 'Papanikolis'. My parents used to tell me anecdotal stories about her operations--it seemed that every time there was an explosion at sea (and out of sight) around Korfu & Paxos it was attributed to 'Papanikolis' notching up another 'scalp'.

Nick,

Poor choice of words. l mean't 'attack on', not 'loss of'. Look forward to reading what you have to say on the "Nino Bixio".

Thanks,

Col.

Any chance of it being offered through Amazon or a comparable source for easy access to US-based buyers?
