U-Boat 977

Schaeffer, Heinz

New York: W. W. Norton & Company, Inc, 1953. First Published in the United States [stated]. Presumed first printing. Hardcover. Good/Fair. Arthur Hawkins (Jacket Design). 260 pages. Endpaper maps. Occasional footnotes. Introduction by Nicholas Monsarrat. DJ has wear, soiling, tears and chips. Earlier in the war Schäffer served on U-445 as 1st Watch Officer (I WO) for four patrols. He then took command of the small type IID U-boat U-148. He later took over U-977 from Hans Leilich, and it was under Oblt. Schaeffer's command that U-977 set off from Norway on her very famous (and no doubt arduous) voyage to Argentina when Germany announced her surrender. He made sure to keep the full complement of torpedoes, despite the cramped conditions in a type VIIC U-boat, to avoid any accusations of having sunk ships after the ceasefire. After the war he wrote a book, U-boat 977, about this patrol and all the bizarre rumors related to it. German submarine U-977 was a World War II Type VIIC U-boat of Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine which escaped to Argentina after Germany's surrender. The submarine's voyage to Argentina led to many legends, apocryphal stories and conspiracy theories that together with U-530 it had transported escaping Nazi leaders (including Adolf Hitler himself) and/or Nazi gold to South America, that it had made a 66-day passage without surfacing, that it had made a secret voyage to Antarctica, or even that it would be involved in the sinking of Brazilian cruiser Bahia as the last act of the Battle of the Atlantic. Oblt.z.S. Schäffer decided to sail to Argentina rather than surrender. During later interrogation, Schäffer said his main reason was a German propaganda broadcast by Goebbels, which claimed that the Allies' Morgenthau Plan would turn Germany into a "goat pasture" and that all German men would be "enslaved and sterilized"

Schaeffer, Heinz

New York, NY, U.S.A.: Ballantine Books, 1964. Mass Market Paperback. Fine. 5th Printing. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. U-boat 977 is a terrible, heroic record from the other side of the Battle of the Atlantic. It is a tale of Allied ships sunk, of attack, of counterattack, and finally of defeat of the U-boats. It was written by one of the few desperate men who survived that defeat. Completely authentic, intensely dramatic, it is a personal record of Hitler's most insidious and effective military arm. It begins when the author was a young man starting his training for U-boat service, and carries through the sinkings of Allied ships and the miraculous escapes that brought him his fame. It tells of our growing anti-U-boat war and the horror of the coming of "the worst enemy" radar. And finally he recounts his last incredible dash across the Atlantic, with its stretch of 66 days under the sea, to surrender in the Argentine and face the charge that U-977 had been Hitler's escape ship. Here. also in words and between the lines, is a view of the Nazi military machine as seen by one of its human cogs - a moving, terrible, and valuable picture presented in terms of dramatic action. 148 pages. Some slight rubbing on top & bottom of spine. Browning on inside edges of covers. The book is in fantastic shape!.
