14 editions published between 1960 and 2002 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the story of two great naval battles of the First World War and the ultimate triumph of British revenge at sea. In 1914 Great Britain's naval supremacy was challenged for the first time since Trafalgar. The East Asiatic Cruiser Squadron of the Imperial German Navy, under the command of Vice-Admiral Graf von Spee, itching for battle, found and shattered a British fleet at Coronel, in Chile. The Royal Navy had been defeated, and in Britain public bewilderment soon turned to anger. First Lord of the Admiralty Winston Churchill, and Lord Fisher, First Sea Lord, ordered the destruction of von Spee's ships, sending a powerful force to the Southern Seas which included the battle-cruisers Invincible and Inflexible. Just five weeks after their earlier victory, the Germans went to attack the Falklands, only to fall into the clutches of a now powerful, and prepared, British fleet; there ensued the Battle of the Falkland islands, and a famous victory for the Royal Navy. The British had wreaked their revenge on the Germans."--BOOK JACKET
