Book Description

June 2003
Restricted by the 1919 Versailles Treaty to sixteen destroyers of no more than 800-tons, Germany's true destroyers did not make their appearance until the mid-1930s and the Anglo-German Naval Treaty. This new English translation of a volume by noted German warship historians Gerhard Koop and Klaus-Peter Schmolke examines the destroyer's development from the nascent Möwe-class and Wolf-class destroyers through its full-service history. The operational narrative of this dauntless class of warship, considered the workhorse of the Kriegsmarine, is supplemented by war diary extracts, combat reports, technical tables, detailed ship plans, and a comprehensive selection of photographs, many published in an English reference for the first time. The book makes a fine addition to the history of German warships of the World War II era. 272 pages. 100 photos. 40 illustrations. Hardcover. 8 x 10 inches.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Lots of information here and well organized. Some of the line drawings are a bit too small and not particularly sharp to be useful. All the books by Gerhard Koop are worth having - he did a lot of research.
