In this book, Gordon Williamson examines the design, development and operational use of the battleships used by the Kriegsmarine during World War II. 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.
