The Price of Disobedience: The Battle of the River Plate Reconsidered
by Eric J. Grove 
The Battle of the River Plate, Dec 1939, involved the Admiral Graf Spee, Exeter, Ajax, Achilles, and later the Cumberland. A force from the Royal Navy engaged the German battleship Graf Spee, which had been raiding commercial shipping in the southwest Atlantic. Though the Graf Spee was outnumbered, it inflicted serious damage on the British ships before taking refuge in the harbor at Montivideo, Uruguay. Four days later her commander, assuming a much superior force awaited him, scuttled his ship and then committed suicide.
