Death of the Scharnhorst

A non fiction book by

In one of World War Two's great naval battles, the Royal Navy finally tracked down, cornered, and sank The Scharnhorst--a potent symbol of Nazi seagoing power that had wreaked havoc on Allied convoys. This gripping military tale reveals how the cruiser was lured out of her Norwegian haven on Christmas Day 1943...and in a climactic fight, perished under the big guns of the battleship Duke of York. Eyewitnesses recount this crucial victory that was helped by the cracking of German codes.
