German Commerce Raider Vs British Cruiser Reviews

"One of four Osprey titles by author Robert Forczyk, PhD, this is a fascinating story of German innovation, panache, and guile challenging the steel and firepower of the mighty Royal Navy... Engaging, well written, and well illustrated by Dr. Forczyk and artist Palmer, you can immerse yourself into this fascinating story of modern buccaneers in solo high seas combat. I heartily recommend this book." --Model Shipwrights
