About the Author
ANTON STALLEN, a trained organ builder, came from a family with strong pacifist, socialist and anti-Hitler sentiments, but in September 1941 at age 17 he surprised everybody by volunteering for the German Navy. He wanted to serve aboard a surface ship but was sent to the U-boat Arm. His principal duties aboard U-188 were as bridge lookout and hydroplane operator. He served aboard U-188 from the initial familiarization with the boat on the stocks until she was scuttled at the war's end. Klaus Willmann (b.1934) agreed that he would write Staller’s memoirs and, after long hours of collaboration and reflection, Das Boot U-188 emerged in its first edition in 2008. This English translation, by Geoffrey Brooks, is of the second edition which appeared the same year.
