Item DescriptionThe Gneisenau was ordered to the Kiel Shipyard on 14 February 1934. Designed at the very start for 18,000 tons, she was quickly increased to 31,880 tons. She was commissioned on 21 May 1938. The naval epos of the Gneisenau, parallel to that of the Scharnhorst, started under the command of Captains Forste, NETZBANDT and FEIN, from May 1938 to April 1942. On 4 September 1939, she was attacked by the English bombers. In February 1940, along with the Scharnhorst and Admiral Hipper, the Scharnhorst participated to several battles against the "England-Scandinavia" enemy convoys.
