Duffy follows the Royal Navy on their deadly three-year chase after the secret German fleet.
“This book is not for pirate fans per se, but for those who want to see how others took the tactics pirates used and implemented them during a war. Those interested in World War II naval operations will also want to read these accounts. Each chapter includes a map showing the location of where prizes were taken and short sidebars that relate events elsewhere.”—Cindy Vallar, Pirates and Privateers
