The last hours of the Graf Spee: December 17th, 1939. The Graf Spee, a Nazi battleship, attempts to claim a 10th victim off the coast of South America when it is attacked by three British ships. The heavily damaged ship docks in the neutral port of Montevideo, Uruguay causing Uruguay to become the political focal point of the world. After burying 36 sailors, Germany must decide whether to allow their famous fighting ship to be interned by Uruguay, flee into the open sea and risk attack or scuttle her.
