DIARY OF A U-BOAT COMMANDER

CONTENTS

DURING the 1914-1918 U-boat war to starve Britain into submission, German U-boat commander Karl von Schenk keeps a record of his adventures—and of his yearnings and intense love for a woman.

Von Schenk has all the virtues—and flaws—of his class. Supremely self-confident, an absolute believer in the special destiny of a country forged in war, he is an aristocratic Übermensch, whose one weakness is a woman called Zoë.

Von Schenk’s affair with the beautiful and mysterious Zoë runs parallel to his harrowing life on the edge as he hunts and is hunted under the sea.

As the whole of modern German history crumbles, von Schenk’s thrilling journey into love and war drives him to the limits of his physical and mental endurance, and he is ultimately forced to examine his values and motivations as a man of “blood and iron.” Neither von Schenk nor the reader is prepared for the thunderclap that hits him.
