A bit of a slow burner, before Detmers really gets into his stride, describing his very successful wartime cruise as Captain of the German raider "Kormoran". The exciting description of his final battle against HMS Sydney makes the book a worthwhile purchase, though finding a copy of this title was quite a difficult task. It is a rather thin volume, but an important one nevertheless.

A riveting story of the Secret War at Sea 23 Jun. 2013
By Jonathan Ryan - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This wonderful account of the voyage of the disguised German Auxiliary Cruiser 'Kormoran' (Cormorant) - a former merchant ship equipped with obsolete W.W.1. guns, torpedo tubes and spotter aircraft - written by her captain Theodor Detmers. With the large multi-skilled crew capable of completely transforming the ship's appearance overnight to deceive the enemy 'Kormoran' evaded capture as she cut a swathe though Allied shipping in the South Atlantic and the Indian ocean on her way to the west coast of Australia, where one of the most remarkable and controversial naval battles of World War two took place.
