    Late summer, 1939: The Clyde-registered SS POLLYANNA sails from Cardiff on yet another tramping voyage - Welsh coal to Port Said is the first leg of it. On September 3rd, when Britain declares war, the POLLYANNA is ploughing south through the Red Sea. One thing her crew hasn't heard about - because the BBC hasn't either - is that a fortnight earlier the German pocket-battleship ADMIRAL GRAF SPEE slipped away into the Atlantic. Her mission is to seek out and destroy all the British and Allied merchant vessels she can find. This story, seen through the eyes of the POLLYANNA's third mate, Andy Holt, opens when the POLLYANNA is westbound for Montevideo, Uruguay - which is where the GRAF SPEE too is heading
    The price of disobedience : the battle of the River Plate reconsidered by Eric Grove( Book )
    4 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 202 libraries worldwide
    Renowned naval scholar Eric Grove reassesses the first British naval encounter of World War II--the Battle of the River Plate. In late 1939, a force from the Royal Navy engaged the German battleship Graf Spee, which had been raiding commercial shipping in the southwest Atlantic. Though the Graf Spee was outnumbered, it inflicted serious damage to the British ships before taking refuge in the harbor at Montivideo, Uruguay. Four days later her commander, assuming a much superior force waited for him, scuttled his ship and then committed suicide. This controversial story of risk and naval strategy has been told before, but Grove has unearthed previously unpublished sources to provide a definitive account of the battle and throw new light on the motivation of the Graf Spee's captain. A thought-provoking book, it will attract naval historians and others with an interest in World War II

When the Allies are finally able to pinpoint its location a trap is set, pitting British Intelligence against a wily and powerful military opponent"--Container

    I en serie af udgivelser om den anden verdenskrig tages her atter engang, i et nyt studie, kampen mellem Admiral Graf Spee og de tre engelske krydsere: Exeter, Ajax og Archilles op til fornyet analyse. Der foretages både våbentekniske og holdningsmæssige sammenligninger og uanset at Kommandør Hans Langsdorrf blev snydt af falske efterretninger er vinderen efter forfatterens mening Royal Navys tradition for offensiv kamp, næsten uanset tabene
