Overview


Few warship types have had as much written about them as the Kriegsmarine's capital ships, even though their battleships were so few in number. Recently a growing number of photographs of these ships, many from private albums and some that lay forgotten in obscure archives have been discovered, including many close-ups and onboard shots, of great value to model makers, and rare action photos taken during wartime. Essays on the technical background and design origins detail the full significance of this magnificent collection of photos.
