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.

    Joining chatroom.....joination complete

    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!!!
