30 editions published between 1982 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At Scapa Flow on 21 June 1919, there occurred an event unique in naval history. The German High Seas Fleet, one of the most formidable ever built and prime cause of the Great War, was deliberately sent to the bottom of the British Grand Fleet's principal anchorage at Orkney by its own officers and men." "The Grand Scuttle became a folk legend in both Germany and Britain. However, few people are aware that Rear-Admiral Ludwig von Reuter became the only man in history to sink his own navy because of a misleading report in a British newspaper; that the Royal navy guessed his intention but could do nothing to thwart it; that the sinking produced the last casualties and the last prisoners of the war; and that fragments of the Kaiser's fleet are probably on the moon." "This is the story of the scuttling of the German fleet in Scapa Flow. It contains previously unused German archive material, eye-witness accounts and the recollections of survivors, as well as many contemporary photos which capture the awesome spectacle of the finest ships of the time being deliberately sunk by their own crew."--Jacket

13 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in English and Turkish and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The escape of the German battlecruiser Goeben to Turkey in the early days of the First World War is one of the most under-reported turning points in twentieth-century history." "In 1914 the German Navy's Mediterranean Division comprised just two ships: the Goeben and light cruiser Breslaw. Despite having to run the gauntlet of the French Navy and the British Mediterranean fleet, the pair, ruthlessly commanded by Rear-Admiral Wilhelm Souchon, eluded a tired and irresolute French Commander-in-Chief and then an incompetent British admiral to arrive in Constantinople and bring Turkey into the war."--Jacket

The last corsair : the story of the Emden by Dan Van der Vat( Book )

14 editions published between 1983 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the opening months of the First World War, a lone German cruiser managed to defy three of the world's mightiest navies. Detached from Rear-Admiral Graf von Spee's squadron, the Emden terrorised the Indian Ocean, disrupting shipping and delaying troop movements. In just three months, she was responsible for sinking sixteen merchant ships and two warships, as well as shelling Madras and raiding Penang harbour. It took seventy-eight warships to hunt her down, yet even after she was shelled to pieces and run aground by an Australian cruiser, her crew would not surrender. Aboard a stolen schooner, the First Lieutenant led fifty sailors on one of the greatest of all wartime escapes, first crossing the Red Sea, then making their way through the Arabian desert, on to Constantinople and finally back to Germany." "So great was the reputation of the Emden and her crew that even the British press expressed relief over the survival of the captain and so many of her crew. The story of Germany's most successful battlecruiser is one of heroism, chivalry and adventure, brought to life in The Last Corsair."--Jacket
