The End Of The German Navy

Posted: August 24, 2010 in World War 2

April-June, 1945

Radio message to all units.

In accordance with the unconditional surrender of all German forces, all German ships will refrain from any act of war. The crews are forbidden to scuttle their ships or otherwise to render them unserviceable. Infringements are direct violations of the Grand-Admiral’s order, & will have severe repercussions on the German nation.
