Opis produktu:

 Early in World War One Spee and his gallant men gave the Imperial German Navy the confidence to challenge the Royal Navy's long-held supremacy at sea.

The book is well written. It's about how the Royal Navy hunted down and destroyed the Far Eastern Asiatic Sqaudron of the German Empire between the start of the war in August 1914, and the sinking of the last German raider, *Karlshure* in March of 1915. I used it as a source for my senior history paper, and and enjoyed the details which made everything more tragic than heroic. For example, the Vice Admiral Graf von Spee shocked a club full of pro-german well wishers by proposing a toast to the men of the British warships *Monmounth* and *Good Hope
