Editorial Reviews

Review

"Stephen Robinson brings alive the stories of the ships, the men and their victims. Drawing on a range of primary and secondary sources, Robinson engagingly tells the most complete story of these ships. False Flags sings with stories of the last age of independent action at sea, and in many cases of chivalry." 
- Gavin McLean, Senior Historian, New Zealand Ministry for Culture and Heritage


"This is a book that works superbly on all levels -- giving both the admiralties' ocean-wide perspectives, as well as insight into the minds of the captains of the ships involved." 
- Prof. Peter Stanley, award-winning historian, UNSW Canberra


"Deception, violence and waste are the ingredients of war...Stephen Robinson's handsome, well documented book is full of events that illustrate this... Raiders were fighting ships disguised as merchantmen, crewed by trained naval seaman deeply committed to serving the German war effort. Like Caribbean pirates from the days of sail in some Boy's Own world, they masked their evil intent by sailing under assumed flags... before hoisting aloft the German Navy flag, like a modern day Skull and Cross Bones, and savaging an unwary prey."
- The White Ensign - The Journal of the Naval Association of Australia


"A meticulously researched and fascinating history of a now largely forgotten aspect of World War II."
- Australian National Maritime Association
