18/4/1917 The “Seeadler” makes its way into the Pacific

German raider the Seeadler has been prowling in the Atlantic, attacking Allied merchant ships. The British have had enough of this impertinent ship and have despatched their own warships to hunt it down. But the Seeadler is caught by a storm which blows it far to the south. From here its captain, Felix von Luckner, decides to make his way round Cape Horn and into the Pacific. Thus he leaves behind his pursuers and prepares to prey upon the bountiful shipping of the world’s largest ocean.
