Ship Spotting

Last one for today.

What is it?


Chuck Hill said...

German Light cruiser Emden.

D. E. Reddick said...


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

D. E. Reddick said...

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.

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.
