Descripton: This book is about an armed merchant raider, the Atlantis, which remained at sea for 622 days and covered over 100,000 miles at sea, sinking or capturing some 22 ships totalling 144,500 tons. The book makes for very quick, lively reading about a little-known part of the war.
The Atlantis was sunk by the cruiser HMS Devonshire while refuelling U-126 (Bauer) on 22 November 1941. (A few days previously Atlantis had refuelled U-68 (Merten).)
