Reinhard Hardegen memoir? Auf Gefechtsstationen

Post by Felix C » 19 Mar 2019 16:16

I came across a book titled Man your battlestations! by Hardegen.
Auf Gefechtsstationen in German. 1943 published.

Anyone read it and can opine? Too much propaganda and war time censorship?

Well a stumper. I just requested it via ILL and will have a look and advise. I see it is referenced in a blog where a survivor of a ship sunk by Hardegen narrates his version and H's version from the book is indicated.

Material is non-circulating. Used book prices are very expensive.

To update this post, I found excerpts from the book and unfortunately it has propaganda elements in it. Not sure if it is worth owning or translating.

Hi,

this book was written 1942/1943(!!) in the Third Reich.
That says it all....
It is propaganda....

I translated a 1943 book and did not have any so it varies.
