Vom Autor: “The mysterious voyage of the merchant submarine Deutschland has now kept the attention of the old and new world under strain quite long enough. The wildest rumors regarding our trip and our fate have cropped up in innumerable papers, not to mention the magnificent flights of fiction made by the English. We were stranded, we were sunk - we had even been taken apart and sent in separate packages to America. What fun we used to have on the high seas when our wireless operators would catch one of these plump English canards in full flight! I therefore have the greater pleasure in giving a longer, more detailed description of our legendary voyage and our adventures.
“The voyage, after all, was far from being a fabulous one - for this would have made it doubly precarious. And as for adventures, we naturally avoided these as far as possible.
“I hope, therefore, that the reader will not expect a whole series of exciting episodes, such as may fall to the lot of a military submarine in the war area. Our duty was as follows: to transport our valuable cargo to America as smoothly, and with as few interruptions as possible, to make a joke of the English blockade, and to return with a cargo equally valuable. These things we accomplished, and I shall now describe how we accomplished them.”
Captain Paul König
