The German and the Austrian Navies: Second Edition

Die Deutsche und die Österreichische Marine

Authored by Mr. Marc E. Nonnenkamp
Edition: Second

This is the second edition of "The German and the Austrian Navies" - Volume One by self-published author Marc E. Nonnenkamp. A full time royalty accountant and auditor for US federal crude oil, natural gas and coal royalties has written about one of his favorite subjects - this is a unique and comprehensive literary catalog history of named vessels which have served in the German-speaking Navies of the world. The author's paternal grandfather served in the interwar German "Reichsmarine" from 1924-1936 and his late cousin Gerd Nonnenkamp served in the postwar "Bundesmarine" during the 1960s and 1970s. The first edition of Volume One featured 36 Black & White Illustrations, whereas this second edition of Volume One has 153 mostly color illustrations (where the original illustration was in color) - hence the higher retail price which was set by the publishing company and not by the author. Students of German and Austrian Naval history will appreciate the book's detail and depth. Battleships, Battlecruisers, Dreadnoughts, Pre-Dreadnoughts, Armored Coastal Ships, Casemate Ships, Heavy Cruisers, Armored Cruisers, Armored Frigates, Sailing Frigates, Light Cruisers, Small Cruisers, Armored Corvettes, Sailing Corvettes, Brigs, Galiots, Batteries, Schooners, Sloops, smaller sailing vessels and Wooden Sailing Ships - they're all here. This is Marc E. Nonnenkamp's 4th book on the subject of the German-speaking Navies of Germany, Austria, Austria-Hungary, Venice, the Holy Roman Empire, the Hanseatic League Cities, West Germany and even the former East Germany. These books have been read by more than 71,000 Naval history buffs from 187 countries on 6 continents. The first editions of the author's 2 Volume work received a good review written by Walter "Winn" Price of the US Naval Historical Foundation in Washington, D.C. and have received over 15,000 "Likes" and "Shares" on their website. In addition to being endorsed by the US Navy, Marc E. Nonnenkamp's books are also endorsed by the US Army - California National Guard. The author served in the US Naval Sea Cadet Corps at the former Alameda Naval Air Station from 1974-1978 in both the USS Midway and USS Hancock Squadrons.
