La scomparsa di Juergen Rohwer

Recommended Posts

Da Forum-Marinearchiv apprendo ora che è scomparso il 24 luglio scorso il ben noto storico navale Juergen Rohwer, a lungo direttore della Bibliothek fuer Zeitgeschichte di Stoccarda (dal 1959 al 1989) che ha editato la pregevole "Chronik des Seekrieges 1939-1945" (disponibile e costantemente tenuta aggiornata anche sul web, dopo tre edizioni a stampa) e autore, spesso insieme a Gerhard Huemmelchen, di diversi pregevoli volumi dedicati alla seconda guerra mondiale sul mare, come "Allied Submarine Attacks of the Second World War" (in breve ASA), "Axis Submarine Successes of WW.II", " Die deutschen Schnellboote im 2. Weltkrieg", "The Critical Convoy Battles of March 1943". Era nato nel 1924, e aveva quindi 91 anni. Ha scritto anche, a quanto apprendo ora, un volume sull'assassinio degli ebrei durante il nazismo.

I am very sorry to hear of the passing away of Dr. Rohwer. I had the privilege of meeting him in Montreal over 30 years ago during a symposium on the Battle of the Atlantic. We had an interesting discussion on the role of the B-Dienst early in the war. He raised the bar on Naval History to a new high and will be much regretted. My thoughts are with his family in this hour of grief.
