Product Description

Count Felix von Luckner - the Sea Devil - remains one of the most colourful figures in 20th century New Zealand history. When he first arrived in New Zealand in October 1917 as a prisoner of war he had to be protected from outraged members of the public, as anti-German sentiment was at its peak.

Yet his gentlemanly conduct towards the crews he captured in his raiding activities, his audacious escape from Motuihe Island and the resulting exposure to New Zealand military authorities, turned him into something of a folk hero.

With the help of newly available archival documents, James Bade re-assesses key historical incidents in New Zealand and the South Pacific to unravel the mysteries and misunderstandings surrounding the Sea Devil.
