Descripton: The book is about the life of a common sailor in the german u-boat force at the end of the war. The author Georg Ernst had joined the Kriegsmarine as a volunteer at the age of 17 in march 1943 and had the luck to survive and witness the surrender of his submarine U-1109 in May 1945. The book is different from other biographies, usually about commanders, because it describes the crew member's feelings and thoughts in a time when it was very unlikely to return from a mission.
