THE SEA DEVIL: THE ADVENTURES OF COUNT FELIX VON LUCKNER, THE LAST RAIDER UNDER SAIL
256pp., 8 colour plates. 2017. In 1916, a three-masted windjammer bearing Norwegian colours sailed out of a quiet anchorage in Germany, loaded with cargo and apparently bound for Australia. Her true mission was quite different. The ship was, in fact, the SMS Seeadler, commanded by swashbuckling German aristocrat Felix von Luckner.
