For those interested in that naval era, David Woodward has also written an excellent history of the German Battleship Tirpitz, entitled "Tirpitz". Her existence helped make the initial raider voyages successful by tying down large British naval units. Finally, with great determination and innovation, British forces sunk Tirpitz in a Norwegian Fjord. This book puts the reader into battle against Tirpitz as she moved around the frozen fjords and seas of North Norway.
For those interested in more of the day-to-day life aboard a German Pocket Battleship Raider, Captain Krancke, commander of the Admiral Scheer, wrote a memoir of her raiding days. Entitled "The Battleship Scheer" Battleship Scheer, it brings the reader along on a voyage from the North Atlantic all the way South to the Indian Ocean. Including is his account of the attack on Atlantic Convoy HX 84, including its heroic defense by the British auxiliary cruiser "Jervis Bay". We are treated with vivid descriptions of weather difficulties, the German supply system, life on board a battleship, ship to ship combat, and cooperation between Admiral Scheer and Germany' auxiliary cruisers.
