World War I
The adventures are many and varied and at times it seems a little like reading one of those classic Deeds That Thrilled the Empire publications or a feature from that shameless rag John Bull , but keep in mind a good deal of the heroics and chivalry are German and the supporting cast are French, Russian, Danish and from across the British Empire. The accompanying photographs are many and excellent and the way the chapters are set out allows you to dip in and out at leisure. My copy came with an alarming number of typos in one or two early chapters which would upset me if I was the author.
But the overall quality of this book is absolutely first rate.

- About the Author.
The Battle of the Coronel and the follow up Falkland Islands is a sequence we should all be taught so we can praise the memory of Doveton Sturdee, the Lewisham lad who survived falling foul of the venal Jacky Fisher to win a great victory. He was at Jutland, too. This is the incredible tail of the battle between two armed merchant cruisers, the British Carmania and the German Cap Trafalgar.
Imagine the scene where the British ship came up on the German vessel which had been disguised to look like it!

As I got farther into the book I realized there is much more to the WW1 naval war. The author does a great job letting us know about some of the lesser know ships and battles. Very much recommended for all the sea story readers out there.
