Full Description:

This is the most comprehensive study yet in the English language of the German Imperial Navy’s battlecruisers that served in the First World War. Known as Panzerkreuzer, literally "armored cruiser", the eight ships of the class were to be involved in several early North Sea skirmishes before the great pitched battle of Jutland where they inflicted devastating damage on the Royal Navy’s battlecruiser fleet.

This book details their design and construction, and traces the full service history of each ship, recounting their actions, largely from first-hand German sources and official documents, many previously unpublished in English. Detailed line drawings and maps augment the text throughout, as do a wealth of contemporary photos that depict the vessels at sea as well as in dock. A superb series of full-color, specially-commissioned computer graphics show full length profiles and top-down views of each ship in precise detail.

Gary Staff has studied the Imperial German Navy, for much of his life and has frequently traveled to Germany and elsewhere to consult relevant archives. His most recent book is Battle on the Seven Seas: German Cruiser Battles, 1914-1918.
