Teddy Suhren: Ace of Aces: Memoirs
of a U-boat Rebel by Fritz Brustat-
Teddy Suhren - U-Boat "Rebel"
Teddy Suhren, the commander of U-564, was one of the most successful
U-boat skippers of World War II. He is said to have fired more successful
torpedo shots than any other submariner during the war and was the first
junior officer to be awarded the Knight’s Cross for his achievements. By
war’s end he had earned a Knight’s Cross with Oak Sword and is credited
with sinking eighteen ships plus a British corvette and damaging four other
ships. One of the lucky few to survive the war, Suhren wrote his memoirs
in German with the help of a journalist friend under the title Nasses
Eichenlaub. This English translation of the popular work is the first to be
available. Suhren remains a legend within the U-boat world mostly for his
good humor and irreverent and rebellious nature, which frequently got him
into trouble with higher authorities. Despite his refusal to conform,
however, he had access to the highest circles of power in Nazi Germany.
Suhren’s reminiscences of those times make for some fascinating reading
and include descriptions of social events few were privileged to attend.
Personal Review: Teddy Suhren: Ace of Aces: Memoirs of a U-
boat Rebel by Fritz Brustat-naval
This autobiography by Reinhard "Teddy" Suhren is yet another fine book
by a surviving German Naval Officer of the U-Boat conflict during World
War Two. He was certainly no Nazi, and suffered tremendous personal
loss - his parents and sister died toward the end of the war, when Soviet
forces entered the German-speaking Sudetenland region (now in the
Czech Republic). His brother Gerd Suhren was also a highly-decorated U-
Boat Commander. Teddy was something of a "non-conformist," who
harbored anti-Hitler sympathies, who was no racist and who was very fair
toward his men. After the war, he returned to a country (Germany) which
now saw all veterans as something of criminals - something grossly unfair
to those who were mere victims of their generation. After he passed away
in 1984, his ashes were left in the exact position in the North Atlantic
where his last submarine command (U-564) went down with all her men.
This was done at his specific request. Like many U-Boat aces, he was
withdrawn from the front in order to train new recruits at home - thus did he
survive the carnage of World War 2.
