Mr. Thomas wrote this book in the early 1920s, traveling to Germany to interview many of the U-boat skippers and crews from the Kaiser's U-boat fleet. It's written in a "Boys Own" style and conveys a real sense of excitement and adventure with every page. There are stories of surface gun battles with Q ships, the campaigns against the U.S. east coast in 1918, the sinking of several British battleships off Gallipoli, the hair-raising exploits of the Flanders Flotilla, and many more stories of torpedo malfunctions and unbelievably lucky escapes, e.g., "the torpedo that jumped over a boat."

This is the history of the high scoring German corsair Wolf, which was at sea in difficult conditions in the North and South Atlantic for fifteen months without coming into port, refuelling and resupplying from the ships that she captured. At the end of this time, the ship, presumed missing, appeared in Kiel harbor with a valuable treasure.

Quince meses surcando los océanos, sin tocar puerto alguno, aprovisionándose de carbón y víveres procedentes de los buques que capturaba. Esta es la gesta memorable del Wolf, el buque alemán que detenta la marca de la máxima permanencia en el mar en circunstancias difíciles, ya que las poderosas escuadras enemigas buscaban sin cesar a los corsarios… este relato que nos lleva a través de todos los mares, desde el atlántico hasta los del sur, es emocionante en alto grado por las innumerables peripecias y peligrosas situaciones creadas por las circunstancias en que debía ejercer su misión el "Navío Negro". Cuando en Alemania, después de transcurridos quince meses sin tener noticias del Wolf, lo daban por perdido, un buen día aparecen en el puerto de Kiel con un valioso botín.
