5.0 von 5 Sternen Must reading for WWII buffs 4. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Ms. Wiggins has scooped other World War II and U-boat writers with this excellent rendering of recent and unique first-hand interviews recorded from all levels (admiral to seaman) of German U-boat survivors. The author deftly sets the scene for each of these adventures, but rightfully leaves the telling of their individual stories to their own words. Besides the substance of the tales themselves, what makes the book so special is the realization that without publication at this time, most of the interviews and much of the fine research very probably would have been lost. While some of the U-boat veterans undoubtedly came from backgrounds of naval tradition, most (as in our own US Navy) were just ordinary citizens caught in a wartime situation but dedicated to doing their best while serving their country. Their stories reflect the same hopes and fears, hardship and respite, good luck and bad of all those who go to war; each told in the refreshing light of their own personal experience. The reader is equally struck by the universality of these recollections as those of all who go to sea in ships; noting that regardless of nationality, a sailor's first and last enemy remains the elements themselves. This fine collection of stories Ms. Wiggins presents are fascinating reading for all who may be interested in knowing "the rest of the story" about German U-boat operations in World War II. Her sensitive presentation is simply outstanding.

What a fantastic book! I've been collecting submarine books for 30 years and this is the first one that really gives a view from the personal - human side from ordinary crewmen as well as from little known commanders. I highly recommend this book for anyone who thinks they know about u-boat life. I wait anxiously for her next book and hope that there are many more like this!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Easy to read.... and interesting 28. April 2001
Von Dave Haemmerle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
What a great book. Melanie Wiggins' writing style is very easy on the eyes, and flows very nicely across the pages. I think what I liked most was that its more like a collection of short stories, which made it even more readable for me.
I would recommend this book to any student of the U Boat war, or someone just looking for an interesting book to read. Ms. Wiggins did her homework on this one, and it shows.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Realities of the Enemy 5. März 2002
Von J. Beckler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The fine line between the right and wrong of WWII becomes very hazy after reading this book. I found myself cheering along with the U-boats triumphs, and reading with trepidation when they described the threat of the U.S. ships nearby. An excellent story book, as well as historical reference.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great collection of personal accounts 21. Juni 2009
Von Marc L. Tavasci - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a great collection of personal recollections about the German side of the U-boat war. Many of them are are by average crewmen instead of commanding officers, so this is a nice change from many of the other U-boat memoirs out there. Also, there are some interesting stories about life as a POW and the long journey back to Germany for some of the men in the book. Definitely one of the best U-boat books I've read which told the story of the common U-boat sailor.
