    Almost 100 years from the start of WWI and thousands of books written The Wolf The German Raider That Terrorized the Southern Seas During World War I in an Epic Voyage of Destruction and Gallantry demonstrates there are still stories of bravery and survival against the odds to be told The Wolf chronicles the amazing voyage of a German commerce raider a warship disguised as a commercial cargo vessel The Wolf slips out of a northern German port and raids Allied shipping for the next fifteen months The Wolf sails around the tip of Africa into the Indian Ocean and out to the Pacific around Australia and New Zealand She lays minefields off the coasts of South Africa India Australia Malay Peninsula New Zealand All the while the Wolf captures and sinks Allied shipping taking the crews of those ships prisoner The book also tells the story of how the Allies had no idea what was going on for a very long time Who gets blamed for the disappearing ships is a sad chapter as politicians lie and finger point in all directions The chivalry of the German captain and crew is a last vestige of an earlier time I really enjoyed this sea story I hope you do too 4 Stars


  2. says:

    I love finding books about events I have never heard of before and this book covers one of them The Wolf made a 444 day voyage from Germany to South Africa India Australia New Zealand the South Seas Singapore and back to Germany with stopping in any ports She refueled and reprovisioned herself by capturing other ships on the high seas Often she was laying mines and in the process of capturing ships she managed to to take on board than 400 of their crew and passengers captives A fascinating and well written book


  3. says:

    This book is an interesting and easy to read account of a German commercial raider of WW1 SMS Wolf The story is told from the point of view of the German crew and its victims and the story just races along It’s a very interesting tale of a brave German crew but also highlights the tenacity and bravery of the victims captured by this raider and their year long confinement on board the SMS Wolf Overall it’s an enjoyable book to read and offers the reader an insight into a different and mainly untold history of the Great War

  5. says:

    Fascinating tale I'm pretty well read on WWI and I'd never before heard this storySynopsis without actual spoilers Picture a commerce raider disguised as a freighter but armed with 59 inch main guns and torpedo tubes plus mines for mine laying that sneaks out of Germany captures than a dozen ships — with no time of capture casualties other than one Japanese ship that resisted — lays all of its mines with many later successes from them and eventually gets back to Germany — with a couple hundred prisoners in its holdAnd those prisoners are British Japanese some Swedish Australian Chinese etcThe book almost lost a star early on The authors accept Wilson's definition of US neutrality at face value and then initially appear to accept the poor Lusitania story They mostly — but not uite entirely — right the ship so to speak a few pages later They note the Lusitania was carrying munitions as well as passengers though they neglect to note it was armed They do point out the British blockade by extension and use of food as a blockade tool were as illegal under international law as German submarine war


  6. says:

    In 1916 at the height of World War I a seemingly mundane freighter left port in Germany It was no ordinary ship however and the voyage on which it was embarking would become one of the most audacious and successful of its kind for the Wolf was in fact a German commerce raider and one that would not only sink 37 trading vessels and enemy warships but stay at sea continuously for than 450 days while serving as home to than 400 prisoners including women and children from 25 nations This is both a well researched work of history and an entertaining and gripping seafaring tale giving as it does a vivid view into the lives of not only the German crew but the Americans Britons Australians Kiwis Japanese Spaniards and others who came to be imprisoned on Captain Karl Nerger's raider The Wolf reads like a novel and the authors expertly weave together the stories of several of the captives while putting the entire tale in the context of a world in transition from the days of Victorian chivalry to the beginnings of modern industrial societyHighly recommended


  7. says:

    Story of a lesser known German raider during WWI This extraordinary voyage from Kiel to New Zealand and back to Kiel took well over a full year The ship never went into a harbor during this time coaled at sea from captured ships The story of other raiders are better known and celebrated but this one is the real deal Emden SeeadlerHorrible living conditions on board because of the influx of captured crews and passengers made it a challenge to keep discipline Diseases amongst captured and captors because of deficiency in Vitamin C meager food rations made this a hellish tripThe book is factual narrative of the trip intertwined with stories of interaction between the Germans and captured passengers and officers Complicating it all was the presence of several captured womenIt also goes into detail how by trying to keep the actions of the raider a secret and creating fictitious stories of sabotage and spies the Australian and New Zealand government put other ships at risk and created an environment of hysteria against people of German origin Well worth reading


  8. says:

    This book was a little dull It tries to compete in the genre of Unbroken or Flyboys story driven books about a specific part of war but it comes up short The story itself doesn't seem interesting enough for an entire book There are interesting books about WWI and interesting books about long sea voyages


  9. says:

    Good book gives you the feel of what it`s like to be on a German Auxilliary Raider in World War 1 A good example of one of the most successful of ww1 raiders that have been completely forgotten by history


  10. says:

    Excellent book about a German WW1 commercial raider heavily armed merchant ship aiming for oppositions cargo and transportation convoys SMS Wolf whose role was downplayed by Allies although ship accomplished something that no ship ever did stay afloat and execute raids for than 400 days on the open sea without any base of operationsShip roamed every world ocean during 400 days executed harbor mining of key Allied ports and attacked commercial freighters and caused loss of over 110000 tons of shipping to the Allies Besides the action of the ship itself which are uite amazing main topic of the book are the stories of the crew captured prisoners of war and relations between themIt is interesting how some things never change Censorship on Allied side that wanted to shut down any story about the German auxiliary cruiser operating in the Far East and around Australia and New Zealand by pushing stories about German spies and saboteurs planting bombs on merchant ships caused terrible issues on multiple fronts First it caused ship losses because standard precautions like encrypting messages and like weren't used thus enabling Wolf to easily attack its prey Second it caused hate against Australians and New Zealanders of German origin that had to migrate back to Germany at the end of the war Unlike Japanese immigrant internship in America during the WW2 I never heard about the internship of citizens of German origin in Australia New Zealand South Africa this one got me truly going what? and any other British colonyprotectorate in the betweenThe way Germans were portrayed in Allied media was also a surprise to me Germans did start the war but level of demonization and representation of Germans as Huns as in Atilla the Hun's Huns is truly terrible and awful Considering this and the way Nazi Germany used the media during WW2 makes me shudder when I think what can demagogues do with modern media in hands and again it is not like we do not witness the abuse todayAs Wolf captured ship after ship it slowly accumulated large number of prisoners sailors from almost every part of the world but also passengers men women and children As time passed by this caused issues with food shortages outbreaks of thousand and one sea faring disease and general depressing atmosphere on an overcrowded ship in tropical seas with less and less food as time passed byIt is interesting to see how prisoners made the internal divisions by race very unflattering view of the Asians that during this pandemic starts to pop up again and even within the same race general view that all Scandinavians are German sympathizers Constant bickering problems caused by the presence of women among the men living among men for months captured officers seeking elite prisoner status and better conditions entire ship was snapshot of the world at the time with all issues that come with itBook goes into detail about those prisoners like Cameron family and German officers and crewmen captain Nerger among them that wrote about their experiences after the war We follow prisoners as they try to survive on overcrowded ship in degrading conditions marvel at the Germans because they behave differently than media represents them and experience constant emotional ups and downs as hopes for being released on any of the many islands get crushed by reality Germans simply cannot allow their prisoners to inform the Allies of the raider's presence in the area On the other hand we follow German officers as they try to control the crew during the highly demanding voyage crew living in conditions that are little better than the way prisoners live constantly loading coal from captured ships on a calm and stormy seas utter despair after year of travel because they do not know if and when will their travel finally end will they ever see their families and after hearing rumors about situation in Germany uestion arises what will they find when they come back homeAuthors write in uite a capturing way There is not a single surplus page in this book Story flows very naturally and keeps the reader's attention to the very endFinal chapters are bitter sweet because at that point reader will be emotionally linked not only to the prisoners but also to the German crew These chapters describe the fates of all personas in the book from German crew to the prisoners and most importantly fate of the SMS Wolf itself Raider that caused havoc behind enemy lines was downplayed by the Allies because it had to fit the narrative How can one admit that single ship slipped through so many blockades of Allied forces and made an round the globe trip starting from and ending in Kiel Germany Raider finally ended its life after a decade of post war service as a merchant vesselExceptional book for anyone interested in naval history
