Released in 1985 and 1983, respectively, these volumes recount two of Germany's most remarkable naval stories. Corsair reveals the story of the ship Emdeni, which was the scourge of the Indian Ocean during World War I. Three countries sent a combined force of 78 ships to sink the vessel. When the ship was finally scuttled, the remaining officers and crew incredibly managed to steal another boat and make a getaway across the Red Sea, eventually returning home to Germany. The Ship That Changed the World was the Goeben, whose captain managed to elude British and French forces in order to bring Turkey into the war.
