This book looks at the German battleships of World War II. The battleships of Hitler's navy challenged the enemy in the arctic blizzards of the Barents Sea and gave battle amongst the feeezing mists and ice-floes of the Denmark Strait. They prowled the convoy routes of the North Atlantic and pushed beyond the Equator on raiding sorties that took them from the inshore waters of Brazil and Uruguay to the coastline of West Africa. One, the "Admiral Scheer", even penetrated as far as the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. They sank the battlecruiser "Hood" and the carrier "Glorious". They destroyed an impressive number of merchant ships after firstly ensuring that the passengers and crews were safe. And they humbled Britain's naval pride by breaking through the Dover Straits in broad daylight against all the odds. Churchill considered them to be a greater danger to the Empire's seaborne trade than the lurking menace of the U-boats. Yet despite their tactical victories, the strategic threat they posed to the Allies was never fully appreciated by the Nazi leadership. And it was the misfortune of their crews that they were led by a Fuehrer who once admitted: "On land I am a hero. At sea I am a coward". Indeed at one critical point in the conflict Hitler even demanded that the big ships should be demilitarized and scrapped. The "Kriegsmarine's" battleships fought a long, hard, and chivalrous war. The "Graf Spee" sailed for her combat station a full ten days before Hitler's tanks rolled europe,germany,history,military,naval,ships,transportation,world war ii History, Naval Institute Press

HITLER'S BATTLESHIPS - 2nd edition. - hardcover

1992, ISBN: 1557503435

ID: 1302016380

[EAN: 9781557503435], Jacket, First published in 1992 and brought back by popular demand, with twenty added photographs, the book is full of thrilling action and drama. 1999, new hard bound w/dj, 6x9, iii, 195 pages, illustrated. ---------------------------------------------------------Written by one of Britain’s most popular historians, this absorbing story offers a clear, concise, and entertaining picture of the operational history of German capital ships in World War II. Considered by Churchill to be an even greater menace than the lurking U-boat packs, Hitler’s battleships assumed almost legendary reputations as they prowled the convoy routes and pushed beyond the equator to threaten trade routes. The author begins with an interesting account of the surrender of the High Seas Fleet and its scuttling at Scapa Bay and ends with the death of the Tirpitz. The battleships’ strengths are vividly demonstrated by the sinking of capital ships such as HMS Hood and the carrier Glorious. The author also gives the reader a sense of how the ships fit into the overall structure of the Kriegsmarine. Other ships covered include the Deutschland (Lutzow), Admiral Scheer, Graf Spee, Scharnhorst, and the Bismarck. Many personalities as well are brought to life as the author explores German naval and national politics and their effect on the course of the war--and the enormous Allied effort expended on chasing and sinking these magnificent fighting machines.
