    1. The role Doenitz played in the last days of nazi Germany and his efforts to prolong the war in order to enable to save as many as possible Germans from the advancing Russian armiesMuch to his own suprise, Karl Doenitz was appointed as the new Fuhrer of the Third Reich, bypassing Goering and Himmler.
