Description
On November 30, 1916, the armed freighter Wolf left Kiel, Germany, headed for the South Pacific and an astounding 64,000-mile, 15-month secret mission as a minelayer and commerce raider in World War I. She was responsible for sinking more than 30 Allied ships, yet her captain, Karl Nerger, also took on more than 400 prisonersóincluding women and childrenóboth to maintain the mission's secrecy and to honor the ancient maritime tradition that forbade murdering civilians. As this remarkable history relates, the Germans and their prisoners came to share a common bond, surviving together on food and fuel plundered from other ships, facing death from scurvy, and hunted by the combined navies of five Allied nations.

"The authors' thoroughly researched and convincing study makes clear that good modern naval history is more than just a true account of strategy or battles, for it deals not only with ships but with men."óU.S. Naval Institute Book Review
