The German Navy, did not exactly follow the class structure of other major navies. The Scharnhorst Class and the pocket battleships were light battleships, carrying a main armament of 11 in guns when other navies equipped battleships with 15 in, 16 in, and 18 in main guns. Some German destroyers were closer to British light cruisers than typical destroyers or even destroyer leaders. German light cruisers employed 6 in main guns where the British included in their light cruiser classes vessels that were armed in a similar manner to fleet destroyers, having 4 in or 5 in main guns.

This book packs in significant detail, reviewing the German Light Cruisers of World War Two and providing service history. This produces a very reliable reference work and the level of detail that model makers look for.
