Das kurze Leben des U-Bootkommandanten Eberhard Hoffmann. Von der Gorch Fock und dem Kreuzer Karlsruhe zum Untergang des U 451
From sailor to submarine commander.
The life of a young man from sailor in 1933 to submarine commander in 1940 can be traced on his voyages above and below the sea.
Eberhard Hoffmann's handwritten logbooks take us on the maiden voyage of the popular Gorch Fock to the Baltic Sea and on a world-round trip with the cruiser Karlsruhe.
The cruiser's "goodwill tour" led through the Suez Canal to Sri Lanka, on to Australia, Hawaii, along the west coast of the USA, through the Panama Canal, to New York and back home.
On both ships he undergoes the hard training as a sea cadet. His military career continued with the coastal reconnaissance aircraft and ended in the war with the rank of corvette captain. First he served on U 146, later on U 451, but on the way to the Mediterranean Sea the u-boat sank near Gibraltar and only one sailor survived.
With 30 pictures.
