Description Edit

The German Carrier Graf Zeppelin was a major investment for the Kriegsmarine, but why was it's construction started in the first place and why was it never finished? A short look at the operational purpose and changing strategic situation should give the answer.

Military History Visualized provides a series of short narrative and visual presentations like documentaries based on academic literature or sometimes primary sources. Videos are intended as introduction to military history, but also contain a lot of details for history buffs. Since the aim is to keep the episodes short and comprehensive some details are often cut.
