about this item

Among the military leaders of World War Two, Grand Admiral Karl Doenitz remains a deeply controversial figure.

As chief of the German submarine fleet he earned Allied respect as a formidable enemy. But after he succeeded Adolf Hitlerto whom he was unquestioningly loyalas head of the Third Reich, his name became associated with all that was most hated in the ****** regime.

Yet Doenitz deserves credit for ending the war quickly while trying to save his compatriots in the east. His Dunkirk-style operation across the Baltic rescued up to two million troops and civilian refugees. He was sentenced to ten years at Nuremberga penalty acknowledged as a blatant example of victor's justiceand after his release from Spandau kept well away from politics.

Barry Turner's closely examined and even-handed portrait gives a fascinating new perspective on this complex figure, to whom history has not been kind.

Barry Turner is an acclaimed historian and editor of The Statesman's Yearbook (Palgrave) which has recently celebrated its 150th anniversary. His most recent books areBeacon for Change (Aurum Press, 2011) and with Tony Rennell, When Daddy Came Home (Arrow, 2014), described as "fascinating" by theDaily Mail. He lives in London and southwest France.
