Book Brief

A splendid introduction to the 20th-century's first "Falklands War".  McNally recounts globally deployed British Royal Navy units against crack, Asian-based Imperial German cruisers.  The copiously illustrated coverage recaps the 1914 battles of Coronel and Falklands, where Kaiser's raiders finally faced defeat.
