True in some respects but not all. The book is written in a way. That the average Arm Chair Admiral can follow. And is filled with many unknown facts. Such as The Naval General Staff felt if war was going to come to Germany. How they wished it would be slowed or even abated until 1950 1955 being the better date. By this Time? Had this happened? Germany would have had the newest and most Dangerous and powerdfull fleet in the World.
This book as stnningly clear pictures of all Germanys Capital shiops and what became of them that remained after the War. Each ships history is discussed. Each Ships flaws are discussed. And each new ships innovations are discussed. Had Germany not gone to War in 1939?
and waited until her fleet arm was modernized? It would have been terrible for the Freedom loving nations around the World. A.Hitler did not however. Understand the Navy. He often was heard saying that "On land, I am a warrior. On sea? I am a coward".....He misused the Germany Navy and after the loss of the Grap Spee and Bismarck. He ordered the German Navy Capital Ships to Stand down. No longer would they be used against the Royal Navy. Germany had other battleships in her arsenal which not much have been written abouit such as the DKM Tirpitz, The DKM Schgranhorst, The DKM Blutcher,. This book is a very well written and presented work. A must have for the Arm Chair Historian. Or anyone else who has in intrest in the German Navy.
I higghly recommend it. You will not be dissatisfied..
