"There never was a sea voyage quite like that of Captain Karl Nerger and the imperial German raider Wolf, and there could never be one quite like it again. For Wolf belonged to a dying day., the period that came to an end in the middle of the first World War with the development of the submarine as a deadly weapon. The sage of the Wolf begins on November 30, 1916, when a German freighter glided quietly out of Kiel harbor, looking ordinary enough. But beneath that innocent exterior were concealed seven vicious guns and many tons of mines. For the nextfifteen months, under the sure hand of Captain Nerger, she cruised the oce ans of the world, laying mines and destroying 135,000 tons of shipping." - from the dj.
