Salt to the Sea: 84. Alfred Summary & Analysis

Alfred composes another mental letter to Hannelore. He explains how he found a nurse for Dr. Richter, and helped Emilia and her friends. He also tells her about Florian and his special mission for Gauleiter Koch. Alfred brags, “my catalog of heroics is growing so rapidly I can scarcely keep track.”
For once, Alfred is able to tell Hannelore true facts about his life, instead of fantastic inventions that make him seem more important than he truly is. Still, he makes himself out to be the hero of the story, which is a clear fabrication.
