U-Boat Surface Action, WWI

Editors of Life.  The Unforgettable Winston Churchill.  Giant of the Century.  Life News Book, 1965.

From two paintings by Claus Bergen, appointed Marine Painter to Kaiser Wilhelm II.  In 1917, the artist actually went on a 2-month arctic patrol in U-53, hence the realism of his artwork.
