Der Kapitän

Hans Rose was one of Germany’s most successful WWI U-boat aces and this biography tactfully explores his life.

The book is well-researched, with the extensive bibliography and clear indexing you would expect from its academic authors, and there are well-chosen quotes from Rose’s contemporaries, dramatic descriptions of his naval battles and a good selection of photographs. In addition, this is claimed to be the only biography of the captain to draw on private papers released to the authors by his family.


Authors: Markus F. Robinson & Gertrude J. Robinson
