I was interested to notice that even at the beginning of hostilities, when merchant shipping went unescorted, he did not seem to equate his actions with loss of life, rather referring to his successes as 'thousands of tons of shipping.' The book follows his career to the end of the War and after. I noted that although enjoying a 'good time' when the occasion arose, his interpersonal skills could on occasion be less than successful. Although he did mention his wife, he had more to say about his mother-in-law.
This is a good account of the actions of formidable submariner, even if he served on the 'other side.'
Read it and enjoy it!
Please read this as it sets out the path of a man clearly not very politically aware at times which also throws in doubt history's claim that U boat commanders were all fervent Nazis. A solid end to end history of the Atlantic war from the losers perspective so balance is what this gives. This left me hungry for more so moved onto to Doenitz's memoires now. Not as entertaining but a solid history again.
man who was intelligent and respected his crew from the cleaner to top man under himself. This man went to the top of his profession
A good read I enjoyed it.
