This book relates the life and the death of the rebel German seaman who became one of the most successful U-Boat commanders of World War II. The story of Werner Henke-and a narrative outlining the history of his boat, U-515, and its crew-forms the basis for a biography of a man who defies the stereotypes of German character, who never fit in as a career officer in the German Navy, but who chose a suicidal death in acceptance of the code o. The story of U-515 is also closely correlated to the overall conduct of the U-Boat war, including assessments of Karl Donitz's strategy, the influence of technological innovations, and the contributions of Allied signal intelligence.

This book relates the life - and death - of the rebel German seaman who became one of the most successful U-boat commanders of World War II. In this carefully documented study, Timothy P. Mulligan tells the story of Werner Henke and the crew of U-515 in the Battle of the Atlantic, where they engaged in long-range "lone wolf" operations against Allied ships. The story of U-5l5 is closely correlated to the overall conduct of the U-boat war, including assessments of Karl Donitz's strategy, the influence of technological innovations, and the contributions of Allied signal intelligence. Henke sank twenty-four merchant vessels and two warships before U-515 itself was sunk and he and his crew captured by a U.S. task force in 1944. Fearing he would be turned over to the British and tried as a war criminal, Henke became the only U-boat captain killed in North America while trying to escape as a prisoner of war.

This is a very good book that focuses on the entire life of Werner Henke, one of the top U-boat commanders of WWII. The book has a nice flow to it, is a quick read, and never gets bogged down in minutiae. Covers his early life, his WWII exploits on U-boats, then his death at a US prison camp outside Washington, DC. Highly recommended.
  • Rigiot
A very scholarly work that nicely brings together information from various sources about Werner Henke. I already knew much of his story but to have it all in one volume is an absolute bonus.

I have a particular interest in this U-Boat commander as he took my late father prisoner after the sinking of the SS Phemius off the west coast of Africa in December 1943 (pages 182-183).

Excellent book. Not only a interesting biography of one of the top U Boat aces, but also a fascinating look into the ordinary fighting man in the 3rd Reich and their motivations and backgrounds. Also interesting for showing the effects of Allied propaganda and how deadly it could be to a individual.

Wonderful books with many photos, great text and read.

This book was very good in its discriptions. The title certainly was appropriate. I would highly recomend it. If you are interested in books of the North Atlantic during WW!!, this is one for you.

This book describes in detail the war service of U-515 and its commander, Werner Henke, in the Second World War. It is by far the best book about a single U-boat or its commander I have read. Henke(and his U-boat) was the most sucessfull in the latter half of WWII. This book describes each patrol that U-515 and each ship sunk by this crew. U-515 was sunk in April 1944 and Henke was captured. He did not survive the war- he was forced to commit suicide by the American in charge of him-also described in this book. I cannot recommend this book highly enough-it is that good in describing the war service of U-515 and its commender. It contains information I have found no where else.

I bawled my eyes out at the end. I knew it was coming; I had read about him in another book about U-boats. But still, it was hard to take. I like this guy. Never mind that he was our enemy; that just didn't matter in my estimation of him. This guy was a real man, a real PERSON, a man's man, genuine all the way. He had integrity and stood up for what he believed. He was not a Nazi. As for the writing, it was excellent. Mulligan did a great job, very well written. I enjoyed every bit of it, and will keep the book to read again in the future. This is one German I will never forget.
nice book, good story, if you like true stories as I do of a German not a Hitler gang member
