German Commerce Raiders 1914-18

The local branch of Waterstones must have recently had a big delivery of books from Osprey as I found yet another book to buy during my latest visit. It was GERMAN COMMERCE RAIDERS 1914-18, and was written by Ryan K Noppen and illustrated by Paul Wright.

The book was published last year as No.228 of the ‘New Vanguard’ series (ISBN 978 1 4728 0950 6) and covers the cruisers, liners, and freighters used by the Imperial German Navy to disrupt sea-borne supplies to Europe by capturing and destroying Allied shipping. The ships covered include:

  • Cruisers
    • SMS Dresden
    • SMS Emden
    • SMS Karksruhe
    • SMS Konigsberg
    • SMS Leipzig
  • Liners
    • SMS Berlin
    • SMS Cap Trafalgar
    • SMS Cormoran
    • SMS Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse
    • SMS Kronprinz Wilhelm
    • SMS Priz Eitel Friedrich
  • Freighters
    • SMS Mowe
    • SMS Wolf
    • SMS Seeadler
