Title: The Raider Kormoran Author: Theodor Detmers Length: 208 pages Captain Detmers gives us the true story of his war patrol on the German raider Kormoran in WWII. His breakout into the Atlantic, six months before the Bismarck would take the same route, followed by the tedium and terror of hunting and being hunted in the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, is rivetingly told by Detmers. The tension is highest when he has his fateful encounter with the Australian cruiser Sydney. His description would make a great movie. Then comes the aftermath of his victory over the cruiser and having to abandon his mortally wounded ship, followed by the time in lifeboats, and his internment in Australia. I don't hesitate to recommend this book.
