    What a great gem This is a well documented story that the authors have made into a readable and human adventure This is somewhere between a war memoir and naval history book as we follow the launching of the Wolf in Nov 1916 to its return to Germany in Feb 1918 It travels the Atlantic Indian and Pacific Oceans sinking 30 ships The ship is unusual in that it is an armed merchant ship that takes on all prisoners from the ships it sinks Almost as riveting as the constant adventures of the ship itself are the interactions of the multi national group on the vessel and the actions of governments ashore that mis lead and mis inform the public as to what is actually happening The book bogs down a little in the middle when the authors delve into Australian politics but overall this is a fascinating book Even if you aren't interested in this era I would still recommend this book Solid 4 stars
