Descripton: Herbert A. Werner was the Commander of U-415 and U-953. This book tells the story of his wartime career, including his service on U-557 and U-230 as well as his commands. The description of U-boat life both aboard the ships and ashore is quite detailed, and the book is well written and highly readable. This is not meant to be a work of historical research, but rather an account of personal experiences, and as such is one of the best written on this topic.
