Descripción

The photos in this book are taken from an unpublished album belonging to a member of the crew of the famous German Battleship Tirpitz. The photos cover Rosenbaum’s military career from his early pre-war service in the RAD (German National War Service), maritime training aboard the sailing ship Horst Wessel, as crew aboard the German armoured cruiser Schleswig Holstein, Tirpitz and finally as a prisioner of war in France. This unique collection gives a close up view of one of the most powerful ships of World War Two, a shis that proved to be a persistent thorm in the side of the Royal Navy until sunk in Norway towards the end of the war.
