  1. Found your website via twitter. Have you seen the so called “Schmalenbach-Film”? In May 1941, Paul Schmalenbach was a Kapitän-Leutnant in the German Kriegsmarine. To be more specific, he was the Second Gunnery Officer of the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen. One of his additional duties was that of official Ship’s Historian. This duty gave him access to a great deal of information concerning his ship, to include photos and film shot during her most famous operation- “Rheinübung” the sortie with Bismarck in the Atlantic). Sometime after the war, he donated a film showing footage from the mission to the official Prinz Eugen veterans group, the BKPG.
