New book, 72 pages, WP47. The German Battle-Cruiser, originally known as the Large Cruiser, was the final evolution of the Armored Cruiser. The Imperial German Navy built a smaller number of these warships compared to the British Royal Navy, but they were more like the Fast Battleships of the Second World War. Their heavy armor and good speed made them a force to be reckoned with. In all battles they were able to sustain a much greater level of damage and survive, with the exception of the LUTZOW, as compared to the British battlecruiser. This book covers the Von der TANN, MOLTKE, GOEBEN, SEYDLITZ, DERFFLINGER, LUTZOW, and HINDENBURG.
