Thought some of you (especially our Autralian colleagues) might be interested in the recent review of a new book about the cruise of the German Commerce Raider 'Wolf.'

That's a good review...

I like this bit



commerce raiders were already in decline, as naval power itself became less central to military strategy.


It doesn't quite fit with some recent comments on another thread.
