He is determined that his son Erich will have a solid grounding in his fishing empire, sending him to sea to learn how to fish. As Erich grows older the Third Reich flexes its muscles and he joins the Navy. After completing officer training his first posting takes him to South West Africa to quell a group of troublesome pirates. It is on this voyage he meets the love of his life, Heidi, daughter of the German Ambassador to Morocco and also his nemesis, Gestapo, agent Count Von Wanganheim.
