How often do you get to read something from the loser's point of view. Well worth the price, and a fascinating read.

First hand U-Boat officer, WW2
An extremely interesting and sometimes very harrowing account of one of the few survivors of Germany's Submarine command. It is appalling how few U-boat sailors survived the war and the absolutely grueling conditions they worked under on a patrol. Once you "live" thru the patrols with the author, you wonder how he managed to tolerate the extremely cramped conditions that were much worse than the American submariners endured in the Pacific. The American boats were much more luxurious than the German type VII's, which was their primary submarine type. The book's title is very appropriate due to the large number of German crewmen lost.
A forward by the famous U.S. submariner, Beach.
