The Last Cruise of the Emden: The Amazing True WWI Story of a German-Light Cruiser and Her Courageous Crew
The Last Cruise of the Emden: The Amazing True WWI Story of a German-Light Cruiser and Her Courageous Crew
by Edwin P. Hoyt
The Last Cruise of the Emden is the true story of one of the most extraordinary and little-known escapades of World War I. On August 2, 1914, the Emden, a German light cruiser, was steaming peacefully off the China coast when over its wireless came the message that the German Empire was at war. The ship was made ready for action. Sailing to the Indian Ocean under orders, the Emden sank some twenty merchant vessels - most of them British - a Russian cruiser, and a French destroyer. What followed was a six-month voyage that took the Emden and its crew halfway around the world, fighting heroic battles both on land and at sea, culminating in a dramatic journey across the Arabian desert, which saw the crew survive attacks of malaria, typhus, dysentery, and the murderous onslaught of Lawrence of Arabia's bedouin tribesmen.

The Last-Gentleman-Of-War: The Raider Exploits of the Cruiser Emden (Bluejacket Books)
The Last Gentleman-Of-War: The Raider Exploits of the Cruiser Emden (Bluejacket Books)
by R. K. Lochner
Book Description:
Based on German, French, and English sources, this World War I saga of the German cruiser Emden provides a colorful portrait of a lost era of naval warfare and a lasting tribute to a legendary merchant raider. Though dauntless in pursuit of enemy ships, the Emden treated captured crews with great courtesy and is remembered today as the last man-of-war that adhered to a chivalric code of conduct. The bold and gallant raids against Allied merchant ships in the Indian Ocean earned the Emden the admiration of friend and foe alike. In a single raid it sank a Russian cruiser and destroyed a French torpedo boat and all told is credited with capturing or sinking nineteen merchant ships. Emden cleverly eluded Allied warships until its spectacular career was cut short in 1914 during a fierce engagement with an Australian cruiser off the Cocos Islands. Even the British lamented Emden's demise with a popular newspaper praising the captain as a courageous and resourceful man and predicting the ship to live on in history. This account of the ship's high-seas adventures will fascinate readers of all ages.
