Shipcraft #20; Backer. Presents the two German ships of the Scharnhorst class - the first battleships completed within the Nazi rearmament program. For political reasons they were neither as large nor as heavily gunned as foreign equivalents, but they were long-ranging and very fast, which led them to be described as 'battlecruisers' in some sources. They enjoyed an adventurous war, both surviving heavy damage, before Scharnhorst was finally sunk in an epic gun battle off the North Cape, while Gneisenau succumbed to heavy air attack in port. Includes summary of design history and careers, full details of class variations and modifications, color reference for paint schemes, gallery of photographs of outstanding models, critical reviews of available kits and sources of further information from books to websites. Amply illustrated with more than 50 b/w and 120 color photos, color profiles representing 5 camouflage patterns plus detailed plan and profile line drawings; 64 pages.
