The German Navy in World War Two by Jak P. Mallmann Showell


Illustrated with over 330 photographs and drawings, this invaluable compendium provides a basic reference guide to the ships, organization, command and rank structure, leaders and uniforms of the Kriegsmarine. Although heavily outnumbered by the navies of Great Britain and the United States, the German Navy was a considerable thorn in the side of her two powerful adversaries. The U-boat campaign in the North Atlantic threatened to starve Britain into submission, while such major warships as Tirpitz, Scharnhorst and Gneisinau posed a constant threat to Allied shipping lanes.
