The Illustrated History of the German Navy in WWII

by Robert Jackson



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Exploring everything from small coastal vessels to giant battleships, Kriegsmarine is a pictorial record of Germany’s naval forces before and during World War II.
The German Navy, or Kriegsmarine, fought a valiant campaign in World War II. Though her surface fleet was small, German ships such as the Graf Spee, Bismarck, and Tirpitz tied down a substantial amount of Allied naval resources, and her U-boats almost starved Britain into surrender. This illustrated history tells the dramatic story of the Kriegsmarine through 250 photographs, many rare or previously unpublished. It covers everything from the rebirth of the U-boat fleet and the new pocket battleships to the small-scale actions that occurred later in the war. There are accounts and images of the ships in action, including at the Battle of the River Plate and the sinking of the Bismarck.
