Klaus Willmann hatte Gelegenheit, mit einem dieser wenigen zu sprechen und seine Geschichte niederzuschreiben - auch mit Hilfe des wieder nach Deutschland gelangten Original-Kriegstagebuch von U 188.
Anton Staller, in einfachen Verhältnissen aufgewachsen und später erfolgreicher Orgelbauer, hat den Wahnsinn des Seekrieges miterlebt. Der sehr persönliche Bericht lässt nicht nur den Alltag auf dem Boot mit seiner bedrückenden Enge, der ständigen Bedrohung durch Wasserbomben- und Fliegerangriffe plastische werden. Wir erfahren auch von den Gedanken und Gefühlen der Soldaten auf See: vom ewigen Widerspruch zwischen Pflichtbewusstsein und Zweifeln, von der Sucht danach, jede Möglichkeit der Ablenkung vom Kriegsalltag zu nutzen, vom Wissen um die zerstörerischen Folgen des eigenen Tuns und der sich immer mehr Bahn brechenden Erkenntnis, für eine sinn- und aussichtslose Sache ins tödliche Abenteuer gehetzt zu werden.
