Tirpitz - The Life and death of Germany's last great battleship

£14.99

Product description

Referred to by Winston Churchill as 'the Beast' Tirpitz was Germany's last great battleship and was one of the largest and heaviest battleships ever constructed by a European navy.

Sister ship to the infamous Bismarck, Tirpitz may be referred to as 'the Lonely Queen of the North.'

Laid down in 1936 and commissioned in 1941, Tirpitz spent most of her operational life lurking as a fleet in being amongst the fjords of Norway.

Such as the threat posed to the sea lanes, and with that the Allied war effort, and so obsessed was Churchill and the Admiralty with her destruction that 24 operations, ranging from the foolhardy to the ridiculous - although all were brave - were undertaken against her.
