Sinopsis: Atlantis, one of Germany's most successful World War II raiders, boasted the concealed firepower of a light cruiser yet had no armor, relying on her beguiling appearance to surprise the enemy. During her two-year cruise behind Allied lines, she captured or sank twenty-two merchant ships, broke enemy codes, and got hold of valuable intelligence material from the British that included secret plans for the defense of Singapore. Using the ship's log, crew interviews, and extensive research, the author recounts the real story behind the mystery ship that rarely flew her own flag and never wore her own name.
Joseph P. Slavick draws on previously unavailable data to detail Atlantis's 655-day saga, from outfitting and crew selection to a daring mine-laying mission and attacks on Allied ships that resulted in the loss of more than 145,000 tons of goods, and to reveal the captain's tricks of naval stealth and evasion. At the same time he provides information on the Allied intelligence agencies' responses to the raider threat and the subsequent Allied actions to eliminate the raider threat. Slavick also details Atlantis's eventual destruction and the rescue of her crew. As a chronicle of an often misunderstood kind of strategic and economic warfare, the book stands as a tribute to the dedication, tenacity, resourcefulness, and chivalry of a unique naval officer and his handpicked crew. Their intriguing story will appeal to all readers who like military history, epic, true-life adventure stories, and the lore of the sea. 256 pages. 13 photographs. Notes. Bibliography. Index. Hardcover. 6 x 9 inches.
About the Author: Joseph P. Slavick, Captain, USAF, has served in the Air Force for more than twenty years and is now stationed at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida.
