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. A narrative outlining the history of his boat, U-515, and its crew.
Also, the 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 of the military service whose rules he continually bent and broke.
Though the story Mulligan relates is engrossing and action-packed, it is also a carefully documented study that breaks new ground in uncovering the sociological background of Henke and his crew; in short, it is a study in German history as well as a biography of a U-Boat Commander.
