Lothar-Gunther Buchheim joined the navy when World War II broke out, and served on mine-sweepers, destroyers, and submarines, on the last as an official navy correspondent.

Lothar-Günther Buchheim. The operations that form the subject of the book took place primarily in the fall and winter of 1941

Autumn 1941. A U-boat is on a hazardous patrol in the Battle of the Atlantic, but the tide is beginning to turn against the Germans. As the U-boat is forced to hide beneath the surface of the sea, the increasing claustrophobia of the submarine becomes an enemy as frightening as any depth charge.

As a German naval war correspondent, Lothar-Gûnther Buchheim was on board U-96 during its seventh patrol (October 27 - December 6, 1941). His 1973 book, The Boat (Das Boot), was based on that experience. He informs readers that The Boat "is a novel but not a work of fiction. The author witnessed all of the events reported in it." But the book's characters "are not portraits of real persons living or dead." In other words, the events are real but the characters are not. And the boat is given a fictitious identity--"U-A" [The actual "U-A" was originally constructed for the Turkish navy, but commissioned by the German navy at the outbreak of World War II]. Readers may find these distinctions a bit difficult to grasp. Indeed, the paperback edition of The Boat features a picture of U-96 with its real number and its laughing sawfish emblem, and producers of the film version restored some historical details (e.g., the boat's number, its laughing sawfish emblem, and the fact that its First Watch Officer was from Mexico) that are absent from the novel. On the U-96's seventh patrol (the period covered by The Boat), the captain was Heinrich Lehmann-Willenbrock (one of the most successful U-boat commanders), the First Watch Officer was Gerhard Groth (who may or may not have been the pro-Nazi sycophant and punctilious disciplinarian described in the novel and the film), the Second Watch Officer was Werner Hermann (who, based on his cadet class's reputation, may have been the sort of prankster portrayed in both the novel and the film), and the Chief Engineer was Friedrich-Wilhelm Grade. Johann is said to have been based on Hans Johannsen, evidently an exceptional engine mechanic, who received the Iron Cross first and second class and the German Cross in Gold while still a diesel machinist, and, following promotion to Chief Engineer, received the Knight's Cross (in the novel it is not Johann, but another crewman who has a nervous breakdown).

Readers who pick up the novel expecting to find in it the hard-hitting excitement of the film (Das Boot - The Director's Cut) will be disappointed. The novel often takes the form of a diary, with an entry for each day, even if little happened. This is reflected in some chapter titles--for example, chapter 3 (39 pages) bears the title, "Friggin Around: 1"; and the next chapter (41 pages) is "Friggin Around: 2." Another chapter devotes 67 pages to an Atlantic storm. In the absence of dramatic action, Buchheim, with a trained artist's eye, describes the ocean, the sky, and the clouds. But he also provides many details about life on a U-boat, its equipment, how it operated, and the anti-submarine tactics it encountered. Readers seeking such information will find the novel very interesting. But no real combat occurs until page 194.

Buchheim greatly enhances U-96's naval battles. In the novel and the movie, these were extremely tense, life-threatening encounters. Judging by the U-96's war diary, the reality was different. After firing torpedoes at a convoy, and coming under attack by an escort vessel, U-96 dived to 70 meters, and heard the explosions of 18 depth charges. But Lehmann-Willenbrock noted in its war diary, "Depth charges were laid shallow," and added, "Very poor pursuit." The following day, after U-96 was attacked by another escort vessel, Lehmann-Willenbrock noted laconically, "Unusually poor pursuit." Bombed by a British aircraft while approaching Gibraltar, U-96 did suffer significant damage. Lehmann-Willenbrock recorded that his submarine sank rapidly, with objects falling and glass breaking and the loss of electric power. But the most essential repairs were made quickly with illumination by flashlights. Twenty-five minutes after the attack, U-96 surfaced. It was soon forced to submerge, and went to the bottom at 80 meters, but surfaced again within half an hour. Buchheim also describes an air attack that sank another U-boat when both vessels were approaching La Rochelle. This episode is based on the real life voyage of U-309, which was evacuating German naval personnel from Brest (then besieged by American troops) to La Pallice. During this voyage, U-309 rescued many members of the crew of U-981, which was sunk by a combination of a mine and depth charges from British aircraft.

In view of Buchheim's tendency toward exaggeration, readers might be inclined to question his account of how U-96, on its way home from Gibraltar, stopped a suspicious large passenger liner, and, when it failed to present its papers promptly, attempted to sink it with a torpedo, which failed to explode. Surprisingly, U-96's war diary confirms that this event actually occurred--the liner was the "Cabo de Hornos," en route from Buenos Aires to Bilbao. On instructions from U-boat high command, U-96 eventually let it proceed. Perhaps nothing in The Boat so strongly illustrates how fickle fortune takes the lives of some men while preserving the lives of others--in this case, thousands of passengers owed their lives to a defective torpedo. Unaccountably, this event, one of the most dramatic in Buchheim's book, was omitted from the film (even the uncut version).

Both the novel and the film view the final months of 1941 as the turning point in the war. It seems that the turning point actually occurred about a year later, with the German defeat at El Alamein (November 1942), the surrender at Stalingrad (January 1943), and the heavy U-boat losses in the first months of 1943 (U-boat losses in May 1943 exceeded those in all of 1941). One gets the feeling that Buchheim intended to describe U-boat combat when the war was going against Germany. To do that, he had to go beyond what he had actually experienced on U-96 (he also spent five days on U-309 in 1944, but these probably did not add much to his knowledge of the subject). In other words, The Boat should not be understood as a literal account of U-96's seventh patrol, but as a microcosm of the whole U-boat war, and of the mixed emotions of men caught in modern warfare. Viewed in this context, it is very accurate and powerful.

What can you say on one of the Best War Books (besides Red Badge of Courage and All Quiet on the Western Front) ever!!
Katius
The U-Boat book to end all U-Boat books. This is the best book about what it was like on a diesel sub in WWII regardless of what country you were fighting for.
Silly Dog
Awesome book. So far it's following the scenes in the great film, but adding many more details. Good, clean writing. Very visual. You feel like you're there.
Burilar
One of a handful of really great war novels, based on the personal experience of the author. The only problem is that the book, a 1975 edition jumps from page 338 to 403. They haven't been removed. It was glued up like that in 1975. I will need another book to complete the story.
Anaragelv
Great book. The film is true to it.
misery
This is a really good book but personally I think the movie is better. Read the book and then see the movie.
As described and promptly shipped
