  Erich Raeder
Erich Raeder was born in 1876 and joined the German Navy in 1896.
Raeder's approval of Hitler was shown particularly clearly on 2 August 1934, the day of Hindenburg's death, when Raeder and all the men under him swore a new oath of loyalty with considerable ceremony, this time to Adolf Hitler and no longer to the Fatherland (D-481).
Those comments of Raeder are revealing and show that as an active member of the inner councils of the Nazi state up to 1943, Raeder must share responsibility for the many war crimes committed by his confederates and underlings in the course of their wars.

Raeder's approval of Hitler was shown particularly clearly on 2 August 1934, the day of Hindenburg's death, when Raeder and all the men under him swore a new oath of loyalty with considerable ceremony, this time to Adolf Hitler and no longer to the Fatherland (D-481).
Raeder's personal part in the Nazi conspiracy arises from the fact that, from the time of the Nazi seizure of power, he became increasingly involved in responsibility for the general policies of the Nazi State.
Those comments of Raeder are revealing and show that as an active member of the inner councils of the Nazi state up to 1943, Raeder must share responsibility for the many war crimes committed by his confederates and underlings in the course of their wars.

Erich Raeder was born in 1876 and joined the German Navy in 1896.
In June 1934 Raeder told Hitler that the German fleet must be developed to oppose England, and that therefore from 1936 on, the big ships must be armed with big guns to match the British "King George" class of battleship.
Raeder also went along with Hitler's demand that the construction of U-Boats should be kept completely secret, especially in view of the Saar plebiscite (C-189).

 Hansen   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Raeder’s elevation in 1928 to Chief of the Admiralty, relieving Admiral Zenker, was a further indication that his ideological heritage was not Tirpitzian.
Raeder responded by suppressing all critical publications—not out of envy over Wegener’s growing reputation as a strategic thinker or to defend the image of Tirpitz but to reestablish the German navy as a unified, viable, and reliable arm of the government.
Raeder’s often-quoted fatalistic declaration that the German surface forces were so weak that they could “do no more than show that they know how to die gallantly and thus are willing to create the foundations for later reconstruction” is overused and overplayed.

 Constrained Steele Part 1/ Peg Daniels
Erich Raeder was a curious man. He was the nephew of Admiral Erich Raeder, grand admiral of the German fleet under Hitler until Hitler, disillusioned with the performance of the German navy, accused the admiral of incompetence and forced his resignation.
Raeder was simply the most stunning woman he had ever encountered, and he had encountered quite a few – but he was not naive.
Raeder had wanted him to vary the detection and delay technologies used for the display cases, so that if an intruder somehow managed to ferret out the secrets of one case, that knowledge couldn’t be used to breach another.

 Reviews of 'Erich Raeder: Admiral of the Third Reich'
Raeder was a product of World War One and the idea that Germany could have a fleet that would challenge Britain.
Raeders ideas were obscure and useless in the long run and never played themselves out, the Tirpitz and Bismark were destroyed(but not before the Hood) and Raeder went into obscurity.
Raeder has always been one of those 'Oh yeah, there was this admiral' type figures in the German history of World War II.

 Individual Responsibility Of Defendants: Erich Raeder (2 of 9)
The support given by the German Navy to the German Armament Industry illustrates Raeder's concern with the broader aspects of Nazi policy and of the close link between Nazi politicians, German Service Chiefs, and German armament manufacturers.
Raeder, more than anyone else, was responsible for securing the unquestioned allegiance of the German Navy to the Nazi movement -- an allegiance which Doenitz was to make even more firm and fanatical.
The facts of history -- such as the incorporation of the swastika into the ensign under which the German Fleet sailed, and the wearing of the swastika on the uniform of naval officers and men -- these facts speak for themselves.

Toward the middle of the book and following to the back cover, Raeder continues to bring up Nuremberg, when you truly get the idea that this book was more an explanation than a history, more a document to counter the Allied perspective than a memoir, and more a tedious legal defense than an engaging history.
As the Grand Admiral of the Navy, Raeder's perspective is significant to a comprehensive reading about the war, yet his effort falls in the same barrel as the inept rendition by Patton (War As I Knew It).
Raeder was already an old man when WWII started, and a series of strategic and tactical mistakes made by both he and Hitler rendered even the most lethal Kreigsmarine units useless.

Although a believer in National Socialism, and an admirer of Hitler, their were important strategic differences between the two, most notably on the two-front issue, which led to his being retired in 1943.
