Anton Staller, in einfachen Verhältnissen aufgewachsen und später erfolgreicher Orgelbauer, hat den Wahnsinn des Seekrieges miterlebt.

Wir erfahren auch von den Gedanken und Gefühlen der Soldaten auf See: vom ewigen Widerspruch zwischen Pflichtbewusstsein und Zweifeln, von der Sucht danach, jede Möglichkeit der Ablenkung vom Kriegsalltag zu nutzen, vom Wissen um die zerstörerischen Folgen des eigenen Tuns und der sich immer mehr Bahn brechenden Erkenntnis, für eine sinn- und aussichtslose Sache ins tödliche Abenteuer gehetzt zu werden.
