This fascinating and well-illustrated book examines the design, development and technical performance of the Deutschland-class Panzerschiffe and Hipper-class cruisers with the Royal Navy County and York-class heavy cruisers. The book assesses the impact of the key clashes between the two Navies at the Battle of the River Plate, the Christmas Day Battle of 1940 and the Battle of the Denmark Strait in May 1941.
