These were the Battle of Coronel in November, 1914, the Battle of the Falkland Islands in December, 1914 and the Battle of Mas a Tierra in March, 1915. All three are nearing their first centenary as the various nations, groups and localities that are related in some way to the participants continue to plan their respective commemoration activities. These little known, long ago battles and the fascinating secondary events that surround them, make interesting reading. They are the topic of this book. Here the reader will find details, maps, photos, personal comments of the author as a Chilean born British national and some very valuable original vintage photos that have never been published. The far reaching effects of these happenings on World War Two are also mentioned very briefly, to be considered in some future book.
