This review is from: Hirschfeld: The Secret Diary Of A U-Boat (Paperback)
This book is an extraordinarily rare insight into the U-Boat conflict from the point of view of an NCO; Hirschfeld was privy to more news than most, due to his position as a wireless operator.
The book proceeds with his entry into the German Navy, his assignments on surface shipping, before his eventual transfer to the U-boat Service.
The book notes some of the experiences under the ace Bleichrodt and some of the early missions to America; another extremely interesting section of the book is the mission to Japan on board U-234.
A brilliant book, well worth the money.
