False Flags tells the epic story of the Orion, Komet, Pinguin, and Kormoran, German raiders in the South Seas during the early years of World War II. They left Germany and waged a “pirate war” to cripple the British Empire’s maritime trade on a global scale.

They sank or captured 62 ships on voyages that spanned the globe in a now forgotten naval war, presented now in its entirety for the first time.

False Flags is also the story of the Allied sailors who encountered these raiders and fought suicidal battles against a superior foe as well as the men, women, and children who endured captivity on board the raiders as prisoners of the Third Reich.
