Synopsis

Synopsis

During World War II, the Kriegsmarine armed a number of merchant vessels with concealed guns and torpedo tubes for surprise attacks against Allied shipping. To counter this deadly threat, the Royal Navy employed cruisers and their intelligence-gathering apparatus to find and destroy the disguised German commerce raiders. This Duel title covers the deadly game of cat and mouse, fought by these surface vessels during World War II.

Praise

"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
