What if Hitler understood naval power?

possible counters to soviet/russian nuclear battlecruisers

Re: Tirpitz on the loose

Convoy PQ17 leaves iceland and heads for the soviet union, Now what if Tirpitz under the cover of darkness on a moonless night slips her moorings and heads north, What in the RN and USN arsenal could stop her?

Re: Greatest admiral of all time
