Description
By 1914 Germany had ships and sailors scattered across the globe, protecting its overseas colonies and "showing the flag" of its new Imperial Navy. After war was declared on August 4th there was no hope that these ships could reach home. Instead, in one of the most dramatic yet rarely told stories of World War I, the sailors were ordered to attack Britain's vital trade routes for as long as possible. Under the leadership of a few brilliant, audacious men, they unleashed a series of raids that threatened Britain's war effort and challenged the power and prestige of the Royal Navy. Nick Hewitt gives us vivid descriptions of the battles of Coronel and the Falklands and the actions of the Emden, the Goeben and the Breslau, and the Karsruhe and the Königsberg.
