Yet Doenitz deserves credit for ending the war quickly while trying to save his compatriots in the East his Dunkirk-style operation across the Baltic rescued up to 2 million troops and civilian refugees.
Historian Barry Turner argues that while Doenitz can never be dissociated from the evil done under the Third Reich, his contribution to the war must be acknowledged in its entirety in order to properly understand the conflict.
An even-handed portrait of Nazi Germany’s last leader and a compellingly readable account of the culmination of the war in Europe, Karl Doenitz and the Last Days of the Third Reich gives a fascinating new perspective on a complex man at the heart of this crucial period in history.
