Outstanding Historical Book

Written by Albert from Annapolis, MD on August 29th, 2012

  • Book Rating: 5/5

This is a well-researched and well-narrated book on a little-known subject, the commerce raiders of the First World War. The characters in the story are well-drawn from the written diaries of those who lived the events. The epilogue information is fascinating. We learn about the lives of the main characters after the end of the war. I had forgotten that this was a time when ocean freighters could be either steam driven or sailing ships. We found this riveting right through to the end.
