“Lieutenant – Commander Hein Fehler’s war ended when an American lieutenant boarded his submarine U234 in the North Atlantic. Fehler’s natural instinct to fight on had been crushed by the last Order of th Day issued by Grand Admiral Doenitz – to ‘surrender to the Western Powers’. For ‘Dynamite Fehler, holder of the Gold Cross and the Iron Cross, it was the end of an era of excitement andadventure marked by his courage and leadership in many engagements with Germany’s enemies. Fehler had fought throughout World War II in a variety of ships, including the famous surface raider Atlantis, the scourge of Allied shipping, and the unique giant submarine U234. This account, told in his own words, is as exciting as only truth can be. It stands out as an epic story of a very human, very professional and very brave man.
