From the DJ: In the first part of this book, Captain Bennett, tells the dramatic story of the Graf Spee's career as an ocean raider; of how she was hunted down by Harwood's force; and the outcome of his skilful tactics and the tenacity and courage of his captains and their crews. Captain Hans Lansdorff was driven to seek refuge in neutral Montevideo, and subsequently to scuttle his ship rather than face another battle with Harwood's puny force. The second part of the book, which is profusely illustrated with plates and diagrams, comprises seventeen appendices listing the ships involved in giving technical data and many other facts relevant to this battle in which the British Navy scored the first of its many notable victories during World War II.; 96 pages.
