German military, an Admiral, Commander in Chief 1928-1943. Though he impressed Hitler, he was not always on good terms with the Nazi High Command. In the '30s, he advocated constructions of submarines and fast cruisers in contravention of the Versailles Treaty. When the war came, his failure to stop the Allied convoy ships infuriated Hitler, who forced his resignation and replaced him with Donitz.

Captured in Berlin in 1945 by the Russians, he was found guilty at the Nurnberg trials of having planned war and was sentenced to life in prison, but released in 1955.

He died on 6 November 1960 in Kiel, Germany.
