I read this book on line three years ago. Moving and revealing.

A great read. You can buy it buy elsewhere but this webpage will take you to it.

At least in the opening intro sections...but you can find it throughout..

The British act high and mighty and consider themselves superior and deserving of ruling the waves.

But as you read it on, the sections about the gallantry of his men and ships is very impressive.

Did the British flagrantly toss out international law regarding the halting, searching and seizure of neutral shipping???? Scheer goes on about it.

Still a good read.
