Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Commander Waldemar Kophamel (August 16, 1880 - November 4, 1934) was a successful and highly decorated German U-boat commander in the Kaiserliche Marine during World War I.In his time as commander of U-35 and U-140 he succeeded in sinking 54 ships for a total tonnage of 148,852 gross register tons (GRT).U-boat is the anglicized version of the German word U-Boot [ u bo t] ( listen), itself an abbreviation of Unterseeboot (undersea boat), and refers to military submarines operated by Germany, particularly in World War I and World War II. Although in theory U-boats could have been useful fleet weapons against enemy naval warships, in practice they were most effectively used in an economic warfare role (commerce raiding), enforcing a naval blockade against enemy shipping. The primary targets of the U-boat campaigns in both wars were the merchant convoys bringing supplies from Canada, the British Empire and the United States to the islands of Great Britain. Austrian submarines of World War I were also known as U-boats.

The Battles of Coronel and Falkland Islands
19,49 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

A stunning new restoration of a British World War One epic, this is one of the greatest British films from the silent era. Originally released in 1927 to great acclaim and popularity, The Battles of Coronel and Falkland Islands is an exciting recreation of two key battles faced by the Royal Navy in the early days of World War One. The first major engagement between German and British ships at Coronel was a terrible defeat for Britain with the loss of two warships. Later the British responded in a desperate bid to save the morale of a nation at war. The stunning restoration has a stirring new score by award-winning composer Simon Dobson, commissioned by the BFI and performed, appropriately, by 24 members of the Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines in honour of the 24 members of the band who lost their lives with the sinking of HMS Monmouth at the battle of Coronel.

History of the aircraft carrier
29,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Aircraft carriers are warships that evolved from balloon-carrying wooden vessels into nuclear powered vessels carrying dozens of fixed and rotary wing aircraft. Since their introduction they have allowed naval forces to project air power great distances without having to depend on local bases for staging aircraft operations. Balloon carriers were the first ships to deploy manned aircraft, used during the 19th and early 20th century, mainly for observation purposes. The advent of fixed wing aircraft in 1903 was followed in 1910 by the first flight from the deck of a US Navy cruiser. Seaplanes and seaplane tender support ships, such as HMS Engadine, followed. The development of flat top vessels produced the first large fleet ships. This evolution was well underway by the mid 1920s, resulting in ships such as the HMS Hermes, H sh , and the Lexington-class aircraft carriers. World War II saw the first large-scale use of aircraft carriers and induced further refinement of their design, leading to several variants. Escort aircraft carriers, such as USS Bogue, were built as a stop-gap measure to provide air support for convoys and amphibious invasions
