Overview


After the end of World War I, the German Navy came up with the concept of the Panzerschiffe, or Pocket Battleship, as a method of circumventing treaty limitations on the size and types of ship Germany was permitted to build. New, more modern production methods, where welded construction prevailed over the older riveting process, were combined with the development of modern engines capable of fast speeds and a very powerful armament, far superior to that on any enemy Cruisers. This book covers these three sister ships, the 'Deutschland', the 'Admiral Graf Spee' and the 'Admiral Scheer', which formed the core of the Kriegsmarine's fighting power at the start of World War II.

Its jack frost from the chatroom.j2004dog opened his eyes in thick woodland. He could feel that something was wrong,but he couldnt see what it was. Maybe he was on a server...he looked up. No server. He saw a flash going behind him and he was so scared of what his senses indicated so he spun around and started hitting continusly.Whew,just a tree with a chicken behind it,probaly the flash he saw earlier. He got his oak wood,seven to be exact. He turned the wood into planks,and set of to his greatest doom. Well,did you like it? Story number 2 at falling leaves,result 1. See you there!!!

Preface First off i want to say i am sorry for any/all spelling and grammer faults. I have a misscalibrated nook and it often messes up and i don't notice it. I also invite you to tell me what you think of my stories. I often abandon my progects half way through and i may need some help making my stories so feel free to coment and give me ideas i may need the ocasional kick in the backside to get my storie out. If i use your idea i will give you credit at the end of the chapter, thanks! The Legend of Steve Chapter 1 Notch Notch had thought he had thrown of the mobs when all of a sudden a arrow scatched his ear and hit the tree. He saw 30 mobs com into view including creepers, skeletons, and a few endermen. Notch took one look and ran there was way too many to consider fighting. He ran through the trees not even considering where he was going. He trippped over a rock andropped one of the books he was holding. He didn't even bother trying to pick it up. He new herobrine was trying to take him alive. It was the only reason the skeleton missed him. Herobrine would seend some of his best troops for this. Their was no way it could have missed him at that range. The trees ended and he found himself at high hill ravine. He ran along the edge of the ravine to near by cavesystem
