Edgar von Spiegel von und zu Peckelsheim (1885-1965) was a German submarine commander in World War I. Although the U-202 is fictionalized, the author states in the preface that he drew upon his own logbook (the U-32) as well as the logbooks of other U-boats, in order to convey the many peculiar conditions of life on a U-boat in wartime. The story includes his accusing description of the British using hospital ships to transport troops and horses.
