Devastation at a distance

Another of Germany's 11-inch gun armed "pocket battleships", Admiral Scheer was more spectacularly successful by far than her sister ships though her fate remained the same. As a commerce raider, Scheer successfully sank over 100,000 tons of Allied shipping—a severe setback for the supply situation in Russia and Europe. Once Scheer returned to Germany in 1942, however, she was never free to operate in the Atlantic again. Though she made a few more sorties, the good ol' days were over. Scheer was sunk in Kiel harbor in April 1945.
