Overview

In this, the first of a five volume series covering the capital ships of the German Navy of World War II, Gordon Williamson examines the design, development and operational use of the battleships used by the Kriegsmarine. The ‘Schlesien’ and ‘Schleswig-Hostein’ were used mostly as training ships until the end of the war when they took part in bombardment of Soviet troop movements in East Prussia. The ‘Scharnhorst’ had a successful career until her sinking at the battle of the North Cape, and the ‘Gneisenau’ with her ignominious end as a block-ship. Bismarck's short but glorious career and Tirpitz's lonely vigil in Norway's distant Fjords until sunk by RAF bombers using the massive 'Tallboy' bombs are also covered.

    TO ALL THIS IS THE IMPORTANT MESSAGE I HAD

    There have been so many people share minecraft stories with us. Goldthunder Foodeater4 Darkthunder sushicat bearowner5 Alexrocks ender princess epic king hairlessyeti DuhStoryTheater. Seen any of their posts lately? No. Why? Imposters. Imposters would fake one of them. It would drive them insane and they would quit. Heck, there was talk of suicide no lie! I had a symbol as another under another name i was known under. Mobspawner64 /\/\ we may have changed what we have been known as and i want evryone to say who we reallly are. Have a symbol only you know so you are not impostered
