Karl Donitz [1891 1980] was a German Naval Commander during World War II, who attained the rank of Grand Admiral and was appointed as Commander in Chief of all submarines. He is also credited with implementing the submarine tactic Rudeltaktik, commonly called wolf pack. On April 30, 1945, in accordance with Hitler’s last will and testament he was named President of Germany and Commander of all German Forces. On May 6, 1945, he ordered the surrender of all German forces thus ending World War II in Europe. After the war he was found guilty”crimes against peace” at the Nuremberg Trials and was sentenced to ten years in prison and was released in 1956. The letter is addressed in German to an American historian and in part reads as follows,”I was delighted about your interest in historical matters and your clearly defined questions, However, I would like to ask you to read through my memoirs”Ten Years and Twenty Days”. If you have any questions I will be glad to answer them.’ The letter is nicely signed”Donitz” in blue fountain pen.
