John Asmussen & Kjetil Åkra set out on a journey to show the history of Germany’s final battleship of the Second World War. The many years of hard work and dedication to this subject finally paid off with the release of their complete story of this ship in their book, Tirpitz – Hitler’s Last Battleship. Todd Michalak gives us his review of this brand new publication.

It was a beautiful ship. I have wondered about what became of the hulk. Not surprising that the Luftwaffe couldn't protect it; it would have required more JGs that were needed to defend Der Reich. This book should be a great resource.

They won't be selling many of these unless they get their act together with regard to online ordering & purchasing. A dedicated page in English would be good too.
