I've listened to thousands of hours of Audiobooks. While I've come to be rather inured to the occasional horrible narration, I couldn't get past the first hour of this story. I mean seriously. Doesn't anyone vet these guys, or can just anyone off the street come in and somehow slur through his teeth and his nose, at the same time?

I grew up in Chicago and spent a lot of time at the Museum of Science and Industry I toured the U-505 many times when it was located on the outside rotting in the elements. I was elated when the old war relic was going to be given a proper home underground and fully restored to its real wartime appearance as a memorial to those brave souls who lost there lives and those who survived.
This book really brought to life the story of what life was like from a crewman's prospective. The story told here was absolutely very informative and eye opening. This was one of those books that really holds your interest. This was a well written memoir about life in Germany during wartime and living and serving in the U boat service. Eye opening.
Narrator was excellent.

German WWII uboats are my hobby for almost 30 years. I know this book, I have this book, I read this book several times before. But even then I really did enjoy this reading during long driving on boring highways
A beautifully crafted and entertains account of life in a German uboat during ww2. Regardless of which side of the conflict you align to, the crews of uboats were incredibly brave men. Highly recommend this book to anyone interested in naval warfare or ww2 history.
What three words best describe Norman Dietz’s voice?
Any additional comments?
It was a good story but limited by an oft narrow theme of comparison between the time under two Captains
