Zerstörers

Post by Erich » Thu Mar 13, 2008 9:19 pm

Gentlemen :

Can anyone recommend an excellent title(s) for the KM Zerstörers ? interested in personalities and unit histories.

I have M.J Whitleys work, P. Beavers small photo soft-bound, Z-34 bei Güth and two SOS small soft-backs # 126 and # 148

many thanks

Erich ~ :D

Which Whitley? Destroyer! is an early edition of German Destroyers of World War Two. Another tehnical reference is German Destroyers of World War II by Koop & Schmolke. (Not a lot of creativity in titles....) Groner is always good. For operational history, you can try Vince O'Hara's The German Fleet at War.

thank you for the listing Tiornu and yes the Whitley volume is titled "German Destroyers of WW 2", second edition.

is Vince O'Hara's book available and hopefully not OOP ? my question on history of the Z-boots is for the Baltic affairs from fall of 44 till wars end

Erich ~ and with your recommendation I just purchased the Koop/Schmolke book

I assume the O'Hara book is readily available. It's fairly recent.

I have the first edition of Whitley's book on the KM Zerstorer history - "Destroyers!". Is the second edition of this Whitley book different enough that it is worth having both?

Thanks.

I don't have both in hand to make a comparison.
