High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Vadheim is a village in the municipality of Høyanger in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. The population of Vadheim in 2003 was 222, but since 2004 Vadheim is no longer considered an urban settlement by Statistics Norway, and so its data is no longer recorded. Though not widely known, Vadheim is the resting place for one of the most famous warships of World War I. During that conflict, Germany converted a number of merchant ships in armed surface raiders. These ships cruised the world's shipping lanes and captured/sank Allied shipping. The most famous and successful of these was the SMS Möwe.

Pacific General

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Pacific General is a computer wargame depicting famous battles of the World War II Pacific campaigns. It was published by Strategic Simulations in 1997 using the same game engine of the earlier and successful Panzer General for Windows 95. Pacific General is played on a hex map with icons representing aircraft, warships, tanks, and groups of soldiers. The turn-based style allows each player to strategize their next move. Combat involves various factors, like critical hits, surprise, and terrain. Particular attention is spent on naval warfare, where ships can sustain critical hits to ship systems and submarines can submerge to launch stealth attacks. The weather and time of day are also important factors to consider: darkness can obscure troop movements and rain can prevent air strikes.

World of Warships : IJN ATAGO 1:700 THE BOX CONTAIN: 1 MODEL KIT - 1 LIQUID CEMENT - 1 PRECISION TWEEZER -1 SHIP GUIDE - 1 WALL POSTER (29,7 x 42 cm) - WORLD of WARSHIPS DECALS - 3 INVITE CODES - 1 BONUS CODE Atago is one of four Takao-class heavy cruisers, built between 1927 and 1932, for the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN). Like her sister ships, Atago was named after a mountain: Mount Atago - located just outside of Kyoto. The design of the Takao-class evolved from the preceding Myōkō-class heavy cruisers, built in the 1920s. With thicker armor, dual-purpose main-battery guns and improved torpedo launcher safety, Takao-class vessels became the backbone of the IJN. Their main armament consisted of ten 20 cm/50 3rd Year Type naval guns, in five twin-mounted turrets and 24 Type 93 “Long Lance” torpedoes that could be launched from four quadruple-torpedo launchers. Due to this, Atago became one of the most heavily armed cruisers in the world – at least at the time. It was quickly discovered that the ship design was top-heavy, which affected stability and seaworthiness. For this reason Takao and Atago were rebuilt. The size of the bridge was reduced, the main mast was relocated aftwards, and hull bulges were added to improve stability. Laid down on the 28th of April 1927 at the Kure Navy Arsenal – the same shipyard where the famous battleship Yamato was later constructed – Atago was launched on the 16th of June 1930. The final outfitting and sea trails took nearly 2 years, and the ship was finally commissioned on the 30th of March 1932.

An enlarged Admiral Hipper-class heavy cruiser which served with the Kriegsmarine of Germany during World War II, Prinz Eugen was launched on 22 August 1938 and commissioned on 1 August 1940. She survived to the end of the war, only to sink following Operation Crossroads, a nuclear weapon test at Bikini Atoll in 1946.During her war career, Prinz Eugen fought alongside the battleship Bismarck in the Battle of the Denmark Strait, where she was hit three times; was torpedoed by the British submarine HMS Trident, and from August 1944 onward, she was deployed to shell advancing Soviet troop concentrations along the Baltic coast and to transport German refugees to the west.About Super Drawings in 3D This series focuses on the construction of famous ships¿ battleships, carriers, cruisers, and submarines. With ground-breaking 3D imagery, each corner, angle, and dimension of the ship is viewable. With various close-up views, and each 3D image based on actual technical scale drawings and photographs, this makes an exceptional reference tool. Information on the design, development and combat history of each vessel is also included, as well as numerous photographs and 1/350th scale drawings.Following the defeat in the World War I, the Treaty of Versailles limited the tonnage of the German Navy to 144 thousand tons. Moreover, the treaty stipulated that new warships could only be built to replace the decommissioned ones. In 1921 a new law was enacted which brought about the creation of the Reichsmarine. The few warships that Germany was allowed to keep were modernized and new ones were being built to replace the obsolete ones. Construction of light cruisers was a priority and the first of those, built to replace the Niobe launched in the 19th century, was the Emden. In 1927, during the disarmament conference in Geneva, Germany demanded equal right as far as the expansion of the navy was concerned. Those demands were rejected, therefore, the Reichsmarine drew up the ¿expansion plan¿. It stipulated construction of new warships within the coming years, including submarines, which were forbidden by the Treaty of Versailles¿

Made famous by her final commanding officer, John F. Kennedy, PT-109 is one of the most celebrated warships in American history. However, a full chronicle of PT-109¿s wartime story has heretofore been lacking. Behind the familiar account of the future president and the boat¿s violent demise is the little-known record under two previous officers during the swirling battles around Guadalcanal.In these mainly nocturnal fights, when the Japanese navy was at its apex, America¿s small, fast-boat flotillas would sally out to probe enemy strength, vying with enemy destroyers, who were similarly roaming the waters and able to blast a PT-boat out of the water if main armament could be brought to bear. It was constant hit-and-run and dodging between searchlights across Iron Bottom Sound, as the PT-boats darted in among the enemy fleet, like a¿barroom brawl with the lights turned out.¿Bryant Larson and Rollin Westholm preceded Kennedy as commanders of PT-109, and their fights with the brave ship and its crew hold second to none in the chronicles of US Navy daring. As the battles moved on across the Pacific the PT-boat flotillas gained confidence, even as the Japanese, too, learned lessons in how to destroy them.Under its third and final commander, Kennedy, PT-109 came a cropper as a Japanese destroyer suddenly emerged from a dark mist and rammed it in half. Two crewmen were killed immediately but Kennedy, formerly on the swim team at Harvard, was able to shepherd his wounded and others to refuge. His unsurpassed gallantry can not resist retelling, yet the courage of the book¿s previous commanders have not till now seen the light of day.This book provides the complete record of PT-109 in the Pacific, as well as a valuable glimpse of how the American Navy¿s daring and initiative found its full playing field in World War II.

The Revolution of Peter the Great
34,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Many books chronicle the remarkable life of Russian tsar Peter the Great, but none analyze how his famous reforms actually took root and spread in Russia. In 'The Revolution of Peter the Great,' James Cracraft offers a brilliant new interpretation of this pivotal era. Linking together and transcending Peter's many reforms of state and society, Cracraft argues, was nothing less than a cultural revolution. New ways of dress, elite social behavior, navigation, architecture, and image-making emerged along with expansive vocabularies for labeling new objects and activities. Russians learned how to build and sail warships; train, supply, and command a modern army; operate a new-style bureaucracy; conduct diplomacy on a par with the other European states; apply modern science; and conceptualize the new governing system. Throughout, Peter remains the central figure, and Cracraft discusses the shaping events of the tsar's youth, his inner circle, the resistance his reforms engendered, and the founding of the city that would embody his vision--St. Petersburg, which celebrated its tercentenary in 2003. By century's end, Russia was poised to play a critical role in the Napoleonic wars and boasted an elite culture about to burst into its golden age. In this eloquent book, Cracraft illuminates an astonishing transformation that had enormous consequences for both Russia and Europe, indeed the world.

Great Harry's Navy

Ground-breaking history of how King Henry VIII created England's navy It was Henry VIII who began the process of making England a first-rate sea-power. He inherited no more than seven warships from Henry VII, yet at his own death the King's Navy had 53 seaworthy ships afloat (much the same size as the Royal Navy today) manned by almost 8,000 sailors. Henry VIII originally needed a navy to hold the English Channel and blockade the enemy while he invaded France. Later when invasion from the continent grew serious Henry's navy fought in many actions. Moorhouse doesn't only deal with seagoing exploits. Thanks to Henry VIII dockyards were built (Greenwich and Deptford), timber had to be felled in quantities previously unknown (from land seized during the dissolution of the monasteries), and hemp (for rope) was harvested; new skills were developed, not least the gun-founders and the master shipwrights. Some of the ships were celebrated - 'Henry Grace a Dieu' (aka 'Great Harry') was the biggest ship in the world - 1,000 tons, 122 guns, crew of 700 and the 'Mary Rose' (500 tons, 80 guns, 40 crew) became one of the most famous after she heeled over too far, took water and sank with the loss of almost all hands off Portsmouth.

The Clydebank shipyard built some of the most famous vessels in maritime history - great transatlantic liners like Lusitania, Queen Mary and QE2, and iconic warships like the battlecruiser Hood, and Britain's last battleship, HMS Vanguard. Starting life as J & G Thomson in 1847, the business acquired its more famous persona when taken over in 1899 by the Sheffield-based steelmaker John Brown & Co, which enhanced the yard's existing reputation for turning out first-class products, both naval and mercantile.This book charts the fortunes of the company in terms of its business development, its management and personnel, as well as the great variety of ships it built during the century and a quarter of its existence. It also tells a wider story of the rise to world domination of the British shipbuilding industry and its eventual decline and collapse in the post-war decades, as reflected in the experience of John Brown. Written by an acknowledged authority on Clydeside shipbuilding, the book was originally published in a limited edition in 2000, but this reprint is entirely new and revised, although it retains all the original photographs from the yard's own unrivalled collection.
