Memoirs: Ten Years and Twenty Days
Género. Biografía (pero absolutamente centrada en la intervención del autor en la Segunda Guerra Mundial).
Lo que nos cuenta. Repaso a los acontecimientos de la vida del almirante Karl Dönitz que, además de unos cuantos datos para conocer su pasado y su relación con el arma de Marina, se centra en su servicio en la Kriegsmarine antes y durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, en cuyo final llegó a ser el sucesor del Fuhrer.
As far as I am concerned, one of the definite must-read book on the Battle of the Atlantic. Doenitz delivers an honnest account of his experience of the operational and strategical direction of the battle.
The author frequently refers to the official history of the Royal Navy to either confirm or infirm his own view on specific events, something soldiers rarely do. This makes for a more objective recollection. The book holds many interesting details about the battle.
Highly recommended for anyone...more

Otra cosa es el personaje en sí, el cual parecía que no se entereba de lo que estaba pasando en su tercer Reich por aquellos días.
I already knew the book but I was never interested because I thought it was a little out of date. It was worth reading.
Was amazed to learn that the Germans never realized that the Enigma codes had been broken and that their radio transmissions were being read by the Allies.
Great book from a great commander ..
