The Last Gentleman of War
The Raider Exploits of the Cruiser Emden
By RK Lochner
Translated from German.

Detailed account of the exploits of the Emden in surface raiding early in WW1, and her final heroic stand against the superior guns of the Sydney (which had been escorting the NZEF to Europe) at Keeling Island.
This is the definitive study of the Emden by a leading German historian.
Also covers the subsequent voyage of the landing squad of the Emden who escaped from the action; their journey to safety is an epic in its own right.

Extensive central section of fine photographs.

This study used extensively the surviving German language archival sources, thus gaining access to much that English accounts miss.
