The Graf Spee by Simon Atack (B)


The Graf Spee by Simon Atack (B)

The pocket-battleship Graf Spee catches the flood tide, making speed through a choppy cross-current as she leaves the German naval port of Wilhelmshaven for final trials a few weeks before the outbreak of war on 3rd September, 1939. Under her Captain, Hans Langsdorf, she will soon be on station in the South Atlantic in readiness for action against merchant shipping, vital to the survival of island Britain.
