About this title


Dust jacket notes: "More than 1,200 illustrations depict the warships of the German Navy during the Second World War in this formerly Restricted document. Reprinted from a very rare contemporary recognition manual, it provides the most graphic and visually extensive reference guide to German warships ever published. Prepared from a wide variety of sources, including intelligence reports and reconnaissance photographs, this book depicts the range of surface ships and U-boats deployed by the Kriegsmarine from the mighty battleship Tirpitz through battle-cruisers, 'pocket battleships' cruisers, destroyers and transports to mine vessels and tenders. Included also are the many captured warships under German control. During the Second World War, the US Navy brought recognition thraining to a state not equalled before or since by any other nation, and this book amply demonstrates the quality of the manuals produced. Photographs, line drawings, silhouettes, beautifully shaded airbrush renderings and photographs of models (some with salient details highlighted), together with detailed plans and profiles of the twenty-five principal classes of German warships, make this an exceptionally interesting and useful reference book. There is even coverage, including a plan and profile, of the aircraft carrier Graf Zeppelin as she would have appeared on completion. Of special interest to warship modellers will be the ingenious series of multi-view photographs of models built specifically with recognition details in mind. For warships down to destroyer size, these are seen from eight aerial angles and more than twenty-five hull-up - 'target-angle' - perspectives. Throughout the book, similarities and differences between the various types of ships are pointed out. Technical information is also provided, as well as armament and armour details, and a concluding section depicts the methods of camouflage painting adopted by the German Navy...."
