My first kill was on the September 26, 1939. The ship was the HMS Clement. I went on to sink such other ships as the Newton Beech, the Ashlea, the Huntsman, the Trevanion, the Doric Star and the Africa Shell before being scuttled off Montevideo in December 1939:
I was the prototype "panzerschiff" or "pocket battleship" ordered in 1929. In February 1940, Adolf Hitler decided to rename me. I took part in the Norwegian campaign in 1940, and in December 1942 I fought at the Battle of the Barents Sea. I spent most of the war stationed in the Baltic. On April 16, 1945 I was badly damaged by bombs at Swinemünde and on May 4th I was blown up and scuttled:
I served on the Non-Intervention Patrol during the Spanish Civil War in 1936-37. During November 1940, I raided in the North Atlantic and sank 17 merchant ships totaling 113,223 tons. I was finally sunk by RAF bombers in Kiel on April 9, 1945 after spending my later years stationed in the Baltic:
On April 9, 1940, off the coast of Norway, along with my sister ship KMS Gneisenau, I engaged in a brief fire fight with the HMS Renown and four British destroyers. Then in June 1940, we sank the British Carrier the Glorious west of Lofoten Islands. In Feb 1942, I also took part in the Famous Channel Dash:
I was laid down at Kiel on April 23, 1936. On April 2, 1941 I was slightly damaged by a mine while en route back to Kiel. On May 24, 1941, I scored one hit on the HMS Hood and four hits on the HMS Prince of Wales. During the night, I was forced to leave the KMS Bismarck to her fate. I was involved in the Channel Dash and at the end of the war was ceded to the USA. They dropped and A-bomb on me at Bikini Atoll in July 1946, but still I survived! Then, on December 22, 1946 I was towed to Enubuj Reef where I capsized:
I am to date, the only aircraft carrier laid down by Germany. My construction was halted frequently and I was never finished or commissioned:
The Graf Spee
My sister ship was the KMS Bismarck, and her loss deeply concerned the German High Command. In January 1942, I was moved to the Trondheimfjord in Norway. I was later moved to Tromsofjord and there I remained under air attack from the British Navy and Air Force until I sank in November 1944:
Well so much for our surface ships, now for the U boats. On November 14, 1941, 30 miles east of Gibraltar I sank the HMS Ark Royal. I also sank 23 ships for a total of 63.289 tons, and damaged two ships for a total of 14.143 tons:
I sank the venerable battleship HMS Barham November 25, 1941, in the Eastern Mediterranean:
I bagged a British Carrier the HMS Eagle, on August 11, 1942, in the Western Mediterranean, north of Algiers. I also sank 12 ships for a total of 66.763 tons and damaged three ships for a total of 22.928 tons.
