Admiral Hipper at the Battle of Barents Sea

Post by Jordi » Sun Jul 14, 2019 5:22 pm

Hi again,

German heavy Cruiser Admiral Hipper was hit by British CL Sheffield during the Battle of Barents Sea 31/12/42.

Any sources accounts casualties on Hipper during the combat. Was there any?

Thank you very much
Jordi

It is interesting that at least at NARA the only available war diary from the battle at Barents Sea is the one of the machinery. It does say nothing about KIA and WIA except that the Ardexin for fire extinguishig caused some losses.

All other information about the battle com from reports like the one Igor mentioned.

There are several more in the files of Seekriegsleitung and others but at the moment I have no time to check if there are different numbers.
