German Light cruiser Emden.

Chuck,

You're good... You got it in one!

For a bit of history about this particular Emden and five more pictures of her, go to WW2 Cruisers:

Click on ships from the top menu listing;

Third down on the resulting menu is the entry for German cruisers and heavier combatants of WW-II;

The first entry of that menu is the Emden.

Wouldn't you know it, I forgot to include the link to WW2 Cruisers...

I misspent my youth, when I should have been ogling girls in the stacks of the Atlanta public library looking at old Janes Fighting ships.

Chuck,

I misspent much of my youth in the Augusta-Richmond Co. Public Library doing similar things (not too far away, but a decade or more before I-20 connected the two metropolitan areas). Samuel Elliott Morison's entire series of WW-II USN naval actions was a favorite read of mine. Then there were the late '50s and early '60s National Geographic collections. Louis and Mary Leakey & Olduvai Gorge were favorite subjects, also.
