Gerhard Koop (Author), Klaus-Peter Schmolke (Author), Geoffrey Brooks (Translator) & 0 more. This book is an outstanding book about the little known German Warship Admiral Hipper which went on to survive World War Two. Only to be destroyed in the Bikini Island Atomic Bomb Test as so many other captured ships from that conflict were. Shame when you consider that these ships could have been GREAT show pieces of living history had they not been so carelesly abused.

This volume introduces the heavy cruisers of the Admiral Hipper class. Development and Construction. It begins with the developmental stages of the type, providing details of design and construction and comprehensive technical tables covering armament, machinery and equipment. The term ‘heavy cruiser’ came into use as a result of the post-World War I Washington Conference held by the victorious naval powers in an attempt to end the naval arms race.

Gerhard Koop & Klaus-Peter Schmolke. See all. Item description. This valuable reference book traces the development and building of ships in the class and presents the career history of each vessel, drawn from ships' logs and official battle reports. About this item.

Of the five heavy cruisers allowed by the Anglo-German Naval Treaty of 1935 only . There is an interested contrast here with his book on German light cruisers, where he was very critical of the ships themselves.

Of the five heavy cruisers allowed by the Anglo-German Naval Treaty of 1935 only three were ever completed. The fourth was chosen for conversion to an aircraft carrier, but not completed in that role either, and the fifth abandoned while under construction. The three that were completed had very different fates. The Admiral Hipper was wrecked by RAF bombs in 1945. This entry in Koop's impressive series on German warships looks at all five of these ships, with the most material on the three that were completed.

Gerhard Koop (author), Klaus-Peter Schmolke (author). This valuable reference book, in the same format as the successful Battleships of the Bismarck Class, Battleships of the Scharnhorst Class and Pocket Battleships of the Deutschland Class, traces the development and building of the class and presents the history of each individual ship. Statistical information and complete technical specifications are included, giving an insight into the performance and potential of each vessel. The career history of each vessel is also outlined and is based on primary sources, extracts from the ships' logs and official battle reports.

Products of Germany's race to rearm in the late 1930s, heavy cruisers of the Admiral Hipper class were, for their time, among the world's most formidable and revolutionary warships. In World War II they participated in the battle for Norway and Operation Cerberus, and were part of anti-convoy operations and Baltic patrols. This valuable reference book traces the development and building of ships in the class and presents the career history of each vessel, drawn from ships' logs and official battle reports. Lavishly illustrated, the narrative is accompanied by technical plans, camouflage drawings, and hundreds of previously unpublished photographs, many of them from the private collections of former crewmen. Following the popular Battleships of the Scharnhorst Class and Battleships of the Deutschland Class, this volume will be a welcome addition to any naval history bookshelf.

Great book for naval enthusiasts. Tremendous photos, histories, and technical data.

This book is an outstanding book about the little known German Warship Admiral Hipper which went on to survive World War Two. Only to be destroyed in the Bikini Island Atomic Bomb Test as so many other captured ships from that conflict were. Shame when you consider that these ships could have been GREAT show pieces of living history had they not been so carelesly abused. The only set back I find with this volume. Is that Mr. Gephard writes a great deal about the specifics of the ship. weight, speed, design, what not. And a little about her History. So this particular volume of the many he wrote. Is more like a statisical look at the ship. And not so much as a story line. Altho packed with a wealth of information? It beccomes bogged down in tech Jargon. When so much more coukld have written about her battle history. Of course this book is not just about the Admiral Hipper. But rather an over view of all the ships in her class. I hope mr. Gephard will write another book based more along the lines of his other books like The Bismark and the Tirpitz. he is an outstanding writer and is very knowledgable. But the statistics? cloud the picture and get in the way of the Life of this Warship.
Thank You

superb

Great historical value, but I must admit for the price I expected far more detail. It does have a good set of reference photos, particularly for the historian and modeller, as the Prinz Eugen had somewhat of a distinguished career being a partner to the Bismarck and a A-bomb Test bed for the USA. It does lack good line drawings and interior detail for the Class which I would expect for the price.
