Book Description
Superbly illustrated with hundreds of rare photographs and outstanding diagrams and maps, this study makes an important contribution to the technical history of the German Navy between 1930 and 1945. The Scharnhorst and the Gneisenau represent Germany's first attempts at battleship construction after World War I, and the book provides a complete ship chronology from keel laying to final destruction.
