German Battlecruisers 1914-18, Paperback

German Battlecruisers 1914-18 Paperback

Illustrated by Tony Bryan

Part of the New Vanguard series


This book discusses the concept of the Battlekreuzer.

The German Groerkreuzers, as they were known, were built to strict financial limits, and therefore the German designs were always a compromise between the factors listed under design philosophy.

Individual ship histories are detailed with particular emphasis upon their battle experience and deployment in conflict, and author Gary Staff includes a variety of official records and personal first-hand accounts will be used.

The battlekreuzer had a remarkable ability to withstand battle damage, as demonstrated by the Goeben, which suffered five mine hits on one occasion.

Full colour artwork plates and detailed line drawings and photographs support and enrich the engaging text.
