Teddy Suhren's story shows that great men do not necessary start their career as being the best in class. Suhren was a "screw-up" to his trainers early on but eventually became one of the most decorated Naval Officers in the German submarine service.
Life in U-boats during WWII must not have been easy. Narrow, damp, closed quarters, uncertain if you will be able to return to surface after a depth charge attack, and all inside a “tin can”.
Interesting of this book is his description of meeting some high command, not only Hitler. Particularly when he spent some time with Eva Brown. This is the first book I read someone addresses her. Teddy mentions also his suspicions on the allies having broken the Enigma Code, which in the end turned out to be correct.
I would highly recommend seeing the German movie Das Boot to enrich this book even further.
Now I have to read Iron Coffins, which some consider being the best book on U-boat WWII history.
nevertheless has power over you.
"The Nail That Sticks Out Gets Pounded In."
Suhren was able to maintain his integrity and come through without compromise.
