Has anyone found good reading material on the midget sub use in WWII for the german side. I can seem to locate technical data but not actual war encounters / battles and attacks with these craft.

U-boat.net has great tech data and a bit of operational history if anyones intersted.

Anyone have any stories of actual usage of the craft? I'm looking for books that might reference the subject.

A good introduction to the subject is : 'Midget Submarines of the Second World War' by Kemp.
The operational history of these craft is not dealth with the greatest detail, but the book will give you a clear picture of their employment and effectiveness.
Not the definitive work on midgets submarines but a good overview with a quantity of pictures, drawings and stats.
