So do I. Is there a published review of this book and does anybody have the ISBN number?

You can buy it via amazon Germany.

http://www.amazon.de/Kapit%C3%A4n-zur-E ... 112&sr=8-1 (hope the link works)

I've bought it a few weeks ago, but haven't read it until now. There are some really nice pictures (i.e. oiling operation).

No, I don't think so. The German edition is very new. It's pure idealism to write such a book, because in Germany there is absolutely no market. I don't believe it's so much better in other countries and I think a translation is not inexpensive.
However, I've paged through it yesterday evening and it's very odd to see that there is a life before Bismarck. Very interesting!

And the same would be true for Gunther Lutjens....

I'm sure the title has been translated by now, but for those who don't know it, and for those who are knew to the site. The english translation of the book's title is: "Captain to see,
Commander of the Bismarck, A biography".

Not quite what I was getting at, is there an English translation of the book itself rather than just title?
