World War I U-boat commander and crew

1929. No Binding. Autographs of Commander Lothar von Arnauld de la Periere and officers of the cruiser Emden, 1929. de la Periere was commander of U35 in WWI, and is regarded as the greatest U-boat ace of all time, sinking some 200 ships, 450,000 tons. de la Periere was commander of the Emden in 1928-1930, and later served again in WWII. The signatures appear to have been collected during the Emden's visit to Auckland, 4 July, 1929. A very rare collection, particularly that of de la Periere, a major naval figure in the 20th C wars. Very Good. Item #019966
