This was a good read. It had a different format than most u-boat books I have read. I don't know if it is a work of fiction or fact. This is as much psychological as action. It makes it believable, however, in that this author has very human ups and downs and has unrequited love. It's a good book and I'm glad to have it in my collection.

I have grave doubts this is real. It reads very much like clumsy WWI British Propaganda (which of course was stilllbetter than the German stuff, so...).

Very little is about undersea warfare. Much of it taken up with a affair the "author" is having. Mind you, clearly someone who knew about subs at least edited this, many technical details are correct.

Skip it.

I stumbled across this book by pure chance, like all the books in my collection that I have most enjoyed. The book has a lot of technical details which can be skipped over, however the love story that he weaves in and out amidst the details and excitement of being in a U-boat under attack make this book very much worth the read. Especially noteworthy is the letter that his girlfriend writes to him. The details in it are fantastic to the point of stirring suspicion in the reader as to the veracity of its contents.All in all a very well written and moving narrative.

I've read many war diaries and this one immediately gives the impression of being a work of fiction. Checking around online seemed to only confirm this impression. It is interesting and enjoyable nonetheless, and has intrinsic historical value as well given that it was first published in 1920.

This diary provides a splendsid view of the mindset of a WW I naval officer born of soon to fade social nobility. The book reveals a brave submarine officer dealing with undersea warfare while working with men of perceived lower social status. Years of war begin to change the man's thinking. Entwined thoughout is a love story fated to lose. Unusual book and definitely recommended
