I just recieved this book the other day and have had just enough time for a quick look.

I am very impressed.

The book has 432 pages of many photographs I have never seen before. The section on Bismarck page 316 to page 365 contains around 95 pirtures of Bismarck of which most have been published before, but never in one book. There is another sextion on Tirpitz with very similar coverage.

Each class of capital ship is covered with individual ships getting their own chapter.

Fantastic book well worth the price if you are a fan of the Kriegsmarine
