Hi all ~ If you want to learn more about Vol. I, please check the Review at Modelwarships.com and one of the first letters of feedback in English we received some time ago.

If you're facing problems ordering that book via the shop site, just hit the "Kontakt" button and write in plain English what you want.

Happy reading ~ Olaf!

I received this book a few months ago and I can only recommend it to everyone. This is by far the best publication on the battleship Tirpitz that I have ever seen. You can almost follow the ship's movements day by day. The quality of the photos and resolution of maps is outstanding. Not an inch of white space is wasted. Mr. Gehringer and Bonomi are really doing something extraordinary with this book series. :ok:

Just in case you didn't know, TP Vol. II is now available. We think it is even better than Vol. I, and we believe the book is worth the time you were waiting for it.

Ready for combat

Hello everybody,

really honored to receive feedbacks like this one :

James Stewart‎ 13 December 13th, 2016 at 23:15

I recieved the three Tirpitz books on Monday and have to say absolutely worth buying. I was told I would not be disappointed and these words have been proved true.
There are so many photos I have not seen before and the art work - well the first really good WW2 art work I saw and loved was that in the late 1960's history by Prunnell's and the IWM ("History of the Second World War"). the art work in each of the three volumes is simply 1st Class.
I put off buying any of these books , always had a mind to get them but never seemed to get around to it so I "bite the bullet" and bought all three - no regrets at all.
The books impress at all levels.
In quality of production , information, photographic content , art work, maps and diagrams all show a degree of thought as to presentation, context and I dare say the selection of high quality images used.
Tirpitz would be a ship I would have a general knowledge of and I would never have professed more than this so buying the three books was a good decision on my part and having spent a while with them I know I have have had good value for money.
What has been really nice are the series of "Then and Now" images and related diagrams which really great .
The build of the books - have to say that the authors set a high standard and the publishers did not let them down in achieving it.
The size of the books, quality of paper, clarity of images (pin sharp) , binding is tight and font size is excellent.
really glad I invested in these three books and look forward to Volume IV in due course - I will not wait as long to buy it .
I do hope the final volume will cover the post war fate of the Tirpitz and the sad fate of many of the men who died in her.
If you have not yet seen the authors books I can only recommend them, my turn to say " you will not be disappointed".

PS. It is worth mentioning the great trouble the authors have gone to in researching and in documenting the history of the ship - travelling to Norway - exploring the Fjords finding and mapping locations - no one could say Robert & Antonio have not done their homework.
