Following his stunning victory over the British at the Battle of Coronel on November 1, 1914, Admiral Graf Maximilian von Spee turned the German East Asia Squadron for Valparaiso, Chile. Entering port, von Spee was compelled by international law to leave after 24 hours. Assessing his squadron's situation, von Spee found that half his ammunition was expended and that coal was in short supply.
Turning south, the East Asia Squadron set a course around Cape Horn and made for Germany. He was caoght by the royal Navy and suffered a terrible loss, including his own death. In the fighting, Sturdee's squadron suffered 10 killed and 19 wounded. For von Spee, casualties numbered 1,817 killed, including the admiral and his 2 sons, as well as the loss of 4 ships
