This document is an OSS biographical summary of Karl Doenitz that provides details of Doenitz's naval career, including his service in W.W. I., and of his Nazi sympathies. He is portrayed as ruthless, overconfident, indifferent to casualties yet deeply loyal to his officers and men, and implacably bitter over Germany's defeat in W.W. I. He was a fervent adherent of Nazism and assumed leadership of Germany after Hitler's death. The document is a typewritten mimeograph copy of fair to very good quality on marginally browning paper in good condition.
