His memoirs were written on scraps of paper at night in the barracks, on the train to and from leave, and in his bunk below decks of his U-Boat as it cruised the Adriatic along the Dalmatian coast.
You will read the words of a young Austrian made old by the "War to end all Wars." You will read as he became a decorated hero for a cause he did not understand nor endorse. And you will read how he was ultimately the only survivor of his ill-fated boat. The first installment will follow. Enjoy, in his own words, the story of Franz Strobl, Submariner of the Imperial Kriegsmarine who, if he were writing this today, would wish you peace.
