Descripton: Biography of four big German warships which took part in the Battle of the Atlantic during World War II. Because the main enemy of the German fleet was the British Royal Navy, the book is also about encounters with British warships and mariners defending merchant ships supplying the British Isles and the Soviet Union with vitally important materiel. Many times the destiny of thousands of men on board seemingly indestructible armoured vessels was influenced chance events. For mariners imprisoned between steely plates there remained only two options: to win or to die.
