THE BATTLE OF THE RIVER PLATE: The First Naval Battle of the Second World War
December 1939. German warship Admiral Graf Spee, marauder of the South Atlantic shipping lanes, sailed into a trap. Three smaller British cruisers closed in, and a terrible battle was fought off the coast of South America that day, a naval encounter in the finest Nelson tradition--and victory went to the men with the finest armament of all, courage.
