"A fascinating and detailed account of the German navy's war, mostly covering U-boat activities" by the man who succeeded Hitler as Fuhrer (Damien Burke, author of TSR2: Britain's Lost Bomber).   This is the story of the last world war, as told by Grand Admiral Karl Döenitz himself. His memoir covers his early career with submarines in the First World War and follows both his successes and failures through the Second World War, with great detail on the way the U-boat campaign was waged, as told by the man who invented U-boat tactics.   Döenitz includes details of the U-boat campaigns during the Second World War as well as the opinions, ideas and commentary on the period. Of particular interest are the comments regarding British and American conduct during the war. This is an important social document and an invaluable source for any student of the last war.   After becoming the last Fuhrer of Germany after Hitler's suicide in May 1945, Karl Döenitz spent ten years and twenty days in Spandau Prison having been convicted of war crimes following a trial at Nuremberg.   "A very interesting book looking at the war in the Atlantic from the German side . . . one of the best accounts of the Battle of the Atlantic."--UK Historian… (mais)

Picked up from a local used bookstore which recently acquired a large collection of WWII-themed paperbacks. Karl Doenitz’s memoirs are now sadly dated (originally published in 1959) - primarily because Doenitz had no clue about Ultra and thus didn’t understand why his crews weren’t picking up more convoys. Nothing particularly new about the U-Boat war – you’re better off with Clay Blair’s two-volume set. The supposed insight into the personalities of Hitler, Goering, and Bormann promised on the cover blurbs never appears – Doenitz never had that much access to the hierarchy of the Third Reich and was just as surprised as everybody else when Hitler appointed him successor. The parts of most interest to me were little details about other aspects of the naval war – actions in the Baltic and the Black Sea, and the performance (surprisingly good, at least according to Doenitz) of naval personnel as infantry during the last days of the war.

Doenitz is of the “I knew nothing” persuasion regarding the Holocaust – and may have been telling the truth; he spent most of the war in various ports and wasn’t particularly political. He tiptoes around the assassination attempt – being reluctant to praise anybody who violated their soldier’s oath but allowing that it might be acceptable in extreme circumstances (provided the perpetrators surrendered their own lives). However, he condemns with extreme prejudice “providing military secrets to the enemy” without naming names - I assume he means Canaris and the Red Orchestra. He defends his decision not to immediately surrender after Hitler’s death, claiming that he wanted to give troops in the east as much time as possibly to retreat westward.

Doesn’t really provide much psychological insight, and most of the military material is covered better elsewhere. An interesting sidelight gleaned from the WikiPedia article on Doenitz – he had the third highest IQ of anybody tried at Nuremberg. ( )

El gran almirante Karl Dönitz (1891-1980) fue comandante del Arma submarina de la Marina de guerra alemana desde 1935 a 1945. Hitler, inesperadamente, en su testamento le nombró su sucesor como jefe del III Reich, a pesar de que era un militar totalmente apolítico que nunca había tenido una vinculación estrecha con el partido Nazi.

Interesting as an explanation of the author's role in Nazi Germany. ( )
