In this, the first of a five volume series covering the capital ships of the German Navy of World War II, Gordon Williamson examines the design, development and operational use of the battleships used by the Kriegsmarine. The 'Schlesien' and 'Schleswig-Hostein' were used mostly as training ships until the end of the war when they took part in bombardment of Soviet troop movements in East Prussia. The 'Scharnhorst' had a successful career until her sinking at the battle of the North Cape, and the 'Gneisenau' with her ignominious end as a block-ship. Bismarck's short but glorious career and Tirpitz's lonely vigil in Norway's distant Fjords until sunk by RAF bombers using the massive 'Tallboy' bombs are also covered.
German Battleships 1939-45 Paperback edition by Gordon Williamson
Gordon Williamson was born in 1951 and currently works for the Scottish Land Register. He spent seven years with the military Police TA and has published a number of books and articles on the decorations of the Third Reich and their winners. He is author of a number of World War II titles for Osprey. Ian Palmer is a highly experienced digital artist. A graduate in 3D design, he has provided illustrations for many publications, from modelling James Bond's Aston Martin to recreating lunar landings. He lives and works in London with his wife and three cats.
The first tank ever to be used on the battlefield, the Mark I, profoundly changed the nature of warfare in the 20th century and beyond. This work covers the Little Willie and Mother Mark I prototypes and the aftermath of their introduction.
With war against Germany looming, Britain pushed forward its carrier program in the late 1930s. In 1938, the Royal Navy launched the HMS Ark Royal, its first-ever purpose-built aircraft carrier. This book tells the story of the small, but resilient, carriers and the crucial role they played in the British war effort.
From the Mediterranean to the Black Sea, from the Balkans to Mesopotamia, gunboats played an influential part in the story of World War I. This is a detailed technical guide to the gunboats of all the major navies of the war.
Describes the first of Germany's heavy tanks, the Tiger, which was a devastating combination of armour and firepower. When it entered service its 88mm gun outclassed every other tank it faced. A detailed double page full cutaway of the tank is included.
For most of World War II, British tank development remained faithful to the design philosophy inaugurated during World War I; but when the General Staff identified the need for a new heavy cruiser, the Cromwell Cruiser tank was designed. It soon proved itself the fastest and most successful tank deployed by the Allies.
