Die deutsche Marinegeschichte ist ein weites Feld, auch wenn das paradox klingen mag. Sie reicht von der maritimen Pittoreske bis zu hochdramatischen Trag�dien; von bescheidenen und ehrgeizigen Anf�ngen im 19. Jahrhundert bis zu ehrgeizigen und doch bescheidenen Anstrengungen �unserer� Marine, den Frieden in der Welt wahren zu helfen. Aber wie ein blauer Faden zieht sich durch alle Bilder und Spiegelbilder der deutschen Marinegeschichte die Frage, ob die Deutschen die See verstanden haben, ob sie begriffen, was es bedeutet, da� dreiviertel der Erde von Wasser bedeckt ist, und unser aller Wohl und Wehe wesentlich von der See abh�ngt. Das Buch spiegelt die gro�en und manche aufschlu�reichen kleinen Facetten der deutschen Marinegeschichte; neben streng wissenschaftlichen Abhandlungen stehen maritime Essays, Genrebilder, Portraits - es ist ein meerblauer Blumenstrau� und ganz nebenbei die Bilanz eines Forscherlebens, das von der Faszination der See und der Marine nie loskam.

DIE DEUTSCHE KRIEGSMARINE 1933 – 1945 DIE KREUZER Dieses Buch handelt von der Geschichte der Kreuzer der Deutschen Reichsmarine (sowie der späteren Kriegsmarine). Nach dem verlorenen Krieg war die deutsche Streitmacht zur See auf wenige hoffnungslos veraltete Schiffe beschränkt. Erst 1925 wurde mit der Emden ein erster Neubau in Dienst gestellt. Weitere Leichte Kreuzer kamen in den Folgejahren hinzu. Allerdings litten diese Schiffe stark unter den Beschränkungen des Versailler Vertrags, so dass sie bei Kriegsausbruch 1939 keine vollwertigen Kriegssschiffe mehr darstellten. Mitte der dreißiger Jahre begann man dann mit dem Bau von geplant fünf Schiffen der Admiral Hipper Klasse (allerdings wurden nur drei davon fertig gestellt). Bei diesen Schweren Kreuzern handelte es sich um einen gelungenen Entwurf aus Kampfkraft und Schnelligkeit. Das Buch zeigt die Baugeschichte und die einzelnen Operationen der Schiffe, schildert die Kaperfahrten und Seeschlachten, in die sie verwickelt waren und beschreibt auch das Schicksal eines jeden Schiffs. Umfangreiches Bildmaterial und technische Beschreibungen ergänzen dieses Werk.
This book offers an outstanding visual record of the history, uniforms and gear used by the Kriegsmarine. Over 500 pages, 2600 photographs (most unpublished before) accompany the clear, explanatory text.
The warships of the World War II era German Navy are among the most popular subject in naval history with an almost uncountable number of books devoted to them. However, for a concise but authoritative summary of the design history and careers of the major surface ships it is difficult to beat a series of six volumes written by Gerhard Koop and illustrated by Klaus-Peter Schmolke. Each contains an account of the development of a particular class, a detailed description of the ships, with full technical details, and an outline of their service, heavily illustrated with plans, battle maps and a substantial collection of photographs. These have been out of print for ten years or more and are now much sought after by enthusiasts and collectors, so this new modestly priced reprint of the series will be widely welcomed.??This volume covers the three ships of a design so revolutionary that it defied conventional categories. Deutschland (later renamed LÙtzow), Admiral Scheer and Admiral Graf Spee were simply termed panzerschiffe (armoured ships) by the Germans, but they were known to their opponents by the far more evocative term Pocket Battleships.

Intended to be a class of five, they enjoyed contrasting fortunes: Seydlitz and LÙtzow were never completed; BlÙcher 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.

They were the most active, and successful, of the Kriegesmarine's major warships, taking part in numerous famous operations, including the infamous 'Channel Dash'.
By the end of 1943 the German submarine war on Atlantic convoys was all but defeated, beaten by superior technology, code-breaking and air power. With losses mounting, Dnitz withdrew the wolfpacks, but in a surprise change of strategy, following the D-Day landings in June 1944, he sent his U-boats into coastal waters, closer to home, where they could harass the crucial Allied supply lines to the new European bridgehead. Caught unawares, the British and American navies struggled to cope with a novel predicament -in shallow waters submarines could lie undetectable on the bottom, and given operational freedom, they rarely needed to make signals, so neutralizing the Allied advantages of decryption and radio direction-finding. Behind this unpleasant shock lay an even greater threat, of radically new sub- marine types known to be nearing service. Dnitz saw these as war-winning weapons, and gambled that his inshore campaign would hold up the Allied advance long enough to allow these faster and quieter boats to be deployed in large numbers. This offensive was perhaps Germany's last chance to turn the tide, yet, surprisingly, such an important story has never been told in detail before. That it did not succeed masks its full significance: the threat of quiet submarines, operating singly in shallow water, was never really mastered, and in the Cold War that followed the massive Soviet submarine fleet, built on captured German technology and tactical experience, became a very real menace to Western sea power. In this way, Dnitz's last gamble set the course of post-war anti submarine development.
This tells the story of a soldier caught before the evacuation at Dunkirk, and his daring escape and life along the way.
On the eve of Germany's surrender in May 1945, Grossadmiral Karl Dnitz commanded thousands of loyal and active men of the U-boat service. Still fully armed and unbroken in morale, enclaves of these men occupied bases stretching from Norway to France, where cadres of U-boat men fought on in ports that defied besieging Allied troops to the last. At sea U-boats still operated on a war footing around Britain, the coasts of the United States and as far as Malaya. Following the agreement to surrender, these large formations needed to be disarmed—often by markedly inferior forces—and the boats at sea located and escorted into the harbours of their erstwhile enemies. Neither side knew entirely what to expect, and many of the encounters were tense; in some cases there were unsavoury incidents, and stories of worse. For many Allied personnel it was their first glimpse of the dreaded U-boat menace and both sides were forced to exercise considerable restraint to avoid compromising the terms of Germany's surrender. One of the last but most dramatic acts of the naval war, the story of how the surrender was handled has never been treated at length before. This book uncovers much new material about the process itself and the ruthless aftermath for both the crews and their boats.
