HEAVY CRUISERS OF THE ADMIRAL HIPPER CLASS

£16.99 £4.99

A well translated, concise history, it covers the Admiral Hipper class, among the largest heavy cruisers to serve in World War II. Intended to be a class of five, they enjoyed contrasting fortunes: Seydlitz and Lutzow were never completed; Blucher was the first major German warship sunk in action; Admiral Hipper became one of the most successful commerce raiders of the war; while the Prinz Eugen survived to be expended as a target in one of the first American nuclear tests in 1946.
