Description: By 1916 the German merchant fleet had been driven from the seas by a British blockade that had cut off Germany from foreign markets and put the nation on the verge of economic collapse. Germany’s desperate response was the Deutschland, a merchant U-boat uniquely designed with an exceptionally wide beam to carry cargo. Its brief career as a blockade-runner captured international headlines, and Paul Konig’s fast-moving account of its maiden voyage was one of the most popular books of the year when first published in the United States in 1917. 264 Pages - 28 Photos.
