Editorial Reviews

Review

In a well-knit sequence of thoughtful chapters, Rust traces his subjects from their early apprenticeship to the navy through their often sterling wartime careers. He examines their human responses to the grim realities of war, ponders their readjustment during the often desperate years of Germany's reconstruction, and analyzes their current reflections on Germany's past and present. What makes the study particularly valuable is the author's care in setting his data in the correct historical and personal context. - THE AMERICAN NEPTUNE

This book is very interesting in it's content. The details in it are a amazing. At first it seems as if you are being besieged by details but then a clearer picture emerges of a group of men who are trying to live out their lives as their culture has laid out for them. The tribulations that they go thorugh as far as personal honor are throughly examined. They are born and bred leaders the best of the best of the german navy but yet they hold back against speaking against Hitler. Rust examines their motives in not speaking up. It was also very interesting to find so much on the German Navy after WWII this is a subject which is hardly ever touched upoun. The question of what happened after is evrpresent on many history readers minds. He examines the lives of the men in their new surroundings and what has happened to them over the years.

We didn't finish it. To say that the writing is dry is a gross understatement. I suspect this was written and intended as a text book, 'cause it sure put us to sleep! We will be donating it to the local book drive.

This is an expensive book. It is directed to scholars of the era but has a level of detail that myself as an inquisitive bystander reader in 2013 finds hard. I want to understand but the prose is so obscure I am unable to intellectually associate myself with the content of the literature or find it entertaining. It is very factual thus it is probably a book more suited to academics or persons wanting to research the era rather than appeal to me as a casual reader. I am wading through it simply because I have bought it. There are no personal stories or descriptions of personal experiences. It is more a documentary (but very accurate in content) in writing without the pictures.

I have not read it cover to cover as yet but it is hard work trying to continue to match the threads as we progress. I am sure that the content for some may be fantastic. I have read volumes of books from the WWII era from the Thetis submarine to the final chapters of 1945 including the cracking of the encryption code devices in place. I will continue to read it, but it is very complicated to a casual reader who simply wants to understand the circumstances.

This Book is probaly the best book I have ever read on the cultural history of post WWII Germany. It also raises the question of where was the dissent against Hitler? Amazing in it's scope.
