|The battlecruiser may have been 1st Sea Lord John Fisher’s brain child and realized with the Royal Navy’s HMS Invincible class, but the German Großer Kreuzer was
arguably the epitome of this new type of warship. While generally equal with their British counterparts in terms of size and armament, it was the measure of armor
protection that made the German ships superior. Classic Warship Publishing’s latest Warship Pictorial volume, Number 47 to be exact, is dedicated to these beautiful
ships of the Imperial German High Seas Fleet.
This book features 86 images spread across 72 pages and the insides of the front and back covers. Some of the images are colorized and one original color photo taken
about 1952 of the then museum ship Yavuz (ex-Goeben) in Turkey.
