    Book details

The second in a series designed for modellers, this is a complete guide to the German battleship "Tirpitz", from original ship to detailed model. The "Tirpitz" weighed 42,500 tonnes and was the sister ship of "Bismarck". For three years, she was based in Norwegian waters posing a contniuous threat to British convoys to Northern Russia. She only once fired her heavy guns in anger and that was during a raid on Spitzbergen in September 1943. Anchored deep in a Norwegian fjord, she was eventually sunk by high-level bombing by the Royal Air Force.

Review Text

  • By John Stedman on January 3, 2000

    This A4 paperback provides a good visual introduction to Tirpitz and some data on Bismarck. The first part includes general arrangement drawings of armour, followed by well-chosen photgraphs of the ship which show most of the details a modeller or historian would need. Some of the photographs are wrongly captioned, however, and they are not in chronological order. Some are also out of focus, but this is probably due to poor originals being used.The drawings of the ship are of exceptionally high quality and include all deck plans, all critical sections and elevations and a set of 'lines'. Although of small scale - about 1:1000 - they are sharp enough to stand enlargement.There are also a number of photographs of a museum model of Tirpitz, but these are not of very high quality and the viewpoints are repetitive and unimaginatively chosen.Overall, very good value and essential for any Tirpitz/Bismarck enthusiast.
