Summary
As the Allies made their inexorable last assault upon Germany in 1945, Adolf Hitler, the supreme commander-in-chief of all German armed forces, ordered that every official military document should be destroyed. Admiral Karl Donitz, then supreme commander-in-chief of the Navy, felt differently. The Navy, he believed, had waged an honorable war, and posterity would prove the fairest judge. Accordingly, the records fell into Allied hands. "Fuehrer Conferences on Naval Affairs, 1939-1945 is the faithful, firsthand account of Hitler's meetings with his Navy commander-in-chiefs and a handful of other high-ranking officers. This is an authentic and intimate account of the views of Axis high command upon naval strategy and its execution throughout World War II, covering such key events as the invasion of Norway, the plans to invade Britain, the sinking of the "Bismarck, and the Normandy landings
