4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent biography of a successful U-boat Commander. 23. Dezember 1998
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book about the experiences of Peter Cremer and his Unterseeboot (U-boat) U-333, also known as the "Three Little Fishes" because of his conning tower crest of three little fish, reads fairly easily, and will impress the submarine and naval history reader as well as anyone seeking interesting reading of any kind with U-333's amazing exploits. It is testimony to the daring and courage of the U-boats commanders and crews who attempted to make a difference just as our own American sub commanders and crews did in the Pacific against the Japanese Merchant Marine. Definitely worth reading. Some amazing original wartime photographs of U-333's survival of a ramming by an American tanker off Florida as well.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Cremer, better than an Insurance Policy. 1. November 2000
Von LeRoy Brady - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the way his crew referred to Peter Cremer, and for good reason. When all his contemporary U-boat commander's were going missing in the Atlantic, Cremer kept bringing his boat and his men home. This was no easy feat as the reader will clearly see upon reading this excellent and informative book. In fact many times his U-boat, its crew and himself included often bore the severe scars gained while pulling life out of the seemingly unavoidable clutch that death had on them.
Of 40,000 men serving in the U-boat Arm from 1939-45 30,000 were lost at sea. Higher then any other arm of any participating nation. Yet there morale and conviction never failed. This book gives you a glimpse of the courage it took for those men to go out time and again, after injury, suffering and the eventual realization that despite their efforts and sacrafices they could not prevail. They could merely buy time that in the end ran out like the luck of so many of there comrades.
This is not just a history of the Man and Boat but also reviews the events from both sides to illuminate how the initiative changed and why. You will leave with a better understanding of the Battle of the Atlantic and a respect for a worthy adversary.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An extraordinary tale 10. Januar 2010
Von ct reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a first hand personal history of a famous WW2 U-Boat commander, the only one to survive service from the early war years. Cremer provides a candid, readable record of his service, from his time as an officer on destroyers in Norway, his transfer to U-Boats summer 1940, and successful cruises followed progressively more fruitless campaigns. It concludes with a brief command of a new revolutionary XXI boat, it's loss, and his command of Großadmiral Dönitz's personal guard in May 1945.

The author provides a valuable account of increasing technological inequities encountered through the years (increased certainty of detection and destruction), and later cruises without kills but replete only in narrow escapes.

The edition I read (Naval Institute Press, Cloth Bound, 1985) includes a an appendix ("German U-Boat Casualties in WW2") that lists the fate of each U-Boat in service: it's a staggering tabulation of `heroism' and/or suicidal persuasion.

Highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good book to read... 10. Juli 2007
Von Chem - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I consider this book to be rather better than Bucheim's "Das Boot" (although that movie was excellent)...Cremer's account is very readable, in a more straightforward way, to me. He was a true submariner - Bucheim was not (he was a military journalist). And Cremer remained in the naval industry after the war if I'm not mistaken...I'm not certain which book was written first, but obviously both were written some time after the war so one must wonder how different they would have been had they been written sooner. Perspective changes with time)...Bottom Line: I highly recommend Cremer's book.

As an avid reader of u-boat warfare this book is way above the rest ! i've always been interested in Ali Cremer
after seeing him on the world at war series i think about 1974, a real gentleman and a great sailor ! this book has real depth you get a feel for him and his crew on there dangerous missions ! anyone with a interest in this subject will not be disappointed ! my hard back copy arrived to me in very nice condition and also came with a signed photo of commmanda Ali the seller was contacted about this picture and kindly replied stating that he just purchased it in the good old USA and could not help me who the original owner was :) I will be taking the sign photo to the u-boat museum in cuxhaven Germany . i have never written a review before but felt compelled to mention
this amazing book.
