  • Support. However, I'd replace the book covers with photos because of the copyrights. GeneralPatton 07:51, 12 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Support, great work, very informative and well laid out! Good use of references. Decent length.- Ta bu shi da yu 07:52, 12 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • I might just note that Jeronimo Supports this! It may not be obvious... - Ta bu shi da yu 12:11, 14 Sep 2004 (UTC) Object. A good article, which I would support if the images had source information. Also (not part of my ojbection) I would like to see some information on his personal life (wife, children, etc.).

Done. [[User:Neutrality|Neutrality (talk)]] 16:26, 12 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Abstain, on similar ground as Jeronimo. At the moment at least half of the article is describing the submarine warfare instead of Donitz contribution to it. I'd like to read more about his ideas, tactics and strategies (unless targeting merchant shippings, inventing wolfpack strategy and distrusting Enigma is *ALL* that can be said here?). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus 10:13, 12 Sep 2004 (UTC)
    • As most other high commanders during wartime, Doenitz really lived for his work. Didn't have that much of a personal life. GeneralPatton 11:22, 12 Sep 2004 (UTC)
      • I am not asking for his personal life, but more about his work. But the article is nicely expanding, I will likely cross my abstain vote soon if the progress keeps up. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus 10:44, 13 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Support. Fascinating. I knew that German naval encryption was stronger than in other branchs, but I didn't realize there was one guy behind that descision. Donitz's story seems worth featuring. func(talk) 20:04, 12 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Minor objections at the moment: says nothing about the loss of his sons as written about here and i feel that more could be said about his role in using the more secure version of the enigma. Change to support once something is written about that, quite a good article. -- Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 21:39, 2004 Sep 13 (UTC)
