Mucke was the executive officer and first lieutenant on the light cruiser SMS Emden. The Emden raided commercial shipping from her base at Tsingtao, China, into the Indian Ocean. After a four month raiding spree she was finally discovered and destroyed by the Australian Navy light cruiser Sydney. Prior to the arrival of the Sydney, von Mucke, commanding a 53 man landing party had gone ashore on Direction Island in the Cocos group to disable a wireless station and from there witnessed his ships demise.

Upon realising his small command was cut adrift, von Mucke seized the schooner Ayesha and began an epic 11,000 km journey of escape across sea and land. Muckes writings are essential reading for anyone interested in the Imperial German Navy and true stories of high adventure at sea.Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles- each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket- our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.
