HMS Sydney commanded by Captain J C T Glossop, Attacking the German Cruiser Emden by Maurice Randall (P)


HMS Sydney commanded by Captain J C T Glossop, Attacking the German Cruiser Emden by Maurice Randall (P)

The most brilliant feature of the war by sea for Germany was the free and uninterrupted career of the cruiser Emden against the merchant shipping of the allies. She had even shelled oil tanks at Madras, but her daring captain, Karl von Muller, was at length outwitted. Having approached the Cocos Islands, with his ship disguised with an additional funnel, her wily captain sent a landing party to destroy the wireless apparatus. But her identity was recognised and immediately the news was flashed to Singapore. The cruisers Sydney and Melbourne, convoying troopships to Europe, caught the message 100 miles off, and, going full speed ahead, the Sydney caught sight of the Emden soon after 9 am on 9th November 1914. Possessing a ship with heavier guns and greater speed, Captain Glossop soon showed his superiority, and Captain von Muller was obliged to drive the Emden ashore on North Keeling Island to save her from sinking.

 Showing visible signs of her tangle with British cruisers at the Battle of the River Plate, the German pocket battleship Graf Spee slips into the neutral waters of the Montevideo roadstead accompanied by the Uruguayan gunboat Rio Negro for light repairs. (Damage can be seen on the hull and behind the Conning tower ) . This was to be the last haven for the Graf Spee which was later scuttled at the harbour mouth, her commander Kapitan zur See Langsdorff believing a large British fleet to be waiting for attempted escape into the South Atlantic.

 Landing craft head for Juno Beach in northern France on 6th June 1944 in support of the British landings at Sword Beach, packed with Royal Marine Commandos and the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division.  Aside from their flanking action for the offensive on Caen, their mission was to capture the airfield at Carpiquet, but they would first have to drive through the defenses of two battalions of the German 716th Infantry and elements of the 21st Panzer Division.

In February 1945, 850 square miles of volcanic rock became the most strategically important island in the South Pacific. From Iwo Jima heavy bombers would be able to raid Japanese cities almost at will. Even with its overwhelming military might, the Americans would have to pay a heavy price for such a seemingly small island.
