The Odyssey of A U-boat Commander

Recollections of Erich Topp

Book - 1992
Rate this:
Admiral Topp's memoirs reflect the faith, hopes, errors, and transformations in a man's life, indeed those of a whole generation whose understanding of history and ideology were held captive by the myth of power. The terrible annihilation in World War II and, even more so, the unimaginable destructive potential of nuclear weapons, have resulted in a change in the use of power. The author's diaries and journals, along with their contemporary interpretation, illustrate the political dimension of this change. The author wrote this book to illuminate a segment of 20th century history which "can only be portrayed truthfully by those who themselves have lived and suffered through it."
