A very interesting read; compelling, almost difficult to put down if you're interested in U Boat high achievers'...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Golden Horseshoe: The Wartime Career of Otto Kreschmer, U-Boat Ace (Paperback)
A most interesting and factual account - endorsed by many high profile personalities of all sides...A certain respect for this captain was given by all, his crew, his country and not excluding his enemy...
An admirable officer and a gentleman who showed honour, valour and chivalry.
Kreschmer was an intrepid pioneer in U Boat tactics who virtually took the "sniper" approach in his methodology at maximizing results. A somewhat humble and "no nonsense" quiet achiever. It is little wonder this Commander was well liked and achieved the highest tonnage despite being captured early on during the war. I found this book very hard to put down.
