Interesting to get to know something about the real Georg Von Trapp. I have mixed views about the book. Von Trapp certainly cared deeply about his crew and country, not so sure how much he cared about those whose ships he sank. The style of writing was definitely like a diary. There were sections that were difficult to follow, maybe in part lost in translation. It was very interesting to read about the squalor Von Trapp and his crews had to endure, including the fumes, which eventually contributed to his death. Von Trapp gives a clear picture of the chaos that occurred during the last days of the war. Nevertheless, a very good read.

This is one of the better autobiographies I have read; a man doing his duty, fighting a war with obsolete equipment that he knows he cannot win, while his country falls to pieces all around him and everything he has fought for collapses. I just wish they'd filmed this part of the Von Trapp story, not the bit with the singing children...
