The action takes place in Whitehall, on board the German tanker Altmark at sea in the Atlantic, in H.M.S. Cossack, and in Norwegian territorial waters.
The year is 1939. From September I to December 7 the Altmark was the supply-ship for the Admiral Graf Spee; she was also a floating prison for the survivors of the Spee's victims. This is the story of the Altmark in the weeks following the sinking of the Admiral Graf Spee.
