DEATH OF THE SCHARNHORST, by John Winton. From the Cassell Military Paperbacks series.
Scharnhorst was one of the Germans' most valuable and successful battle cruisers. She wreaked havoc on Allied convoys and became a symbol of German naval might. This ended on Christmas Day, 1943, when she was trapped and sunk by the big guns of the battleship Duke of York. Drawing on eyewitness accounts from both British and German survivors, this is a gripping story of how the Scharnhorst was lured out to sea and finally defeated. Softcover. 179 pages. B/w photos.
