ElderlyBusinessmanWorking

COMMAND DECISIONS – LANGSDORFF AND THE BATTLE OF THE RIVER PLATE

Langsdorf

The Battle of the River Plate is one of the best remembered naval
engagements of the Second World War, with pictures of the
burning wreck and memories of its tragic commander’s suicide
seared into the public consciousness. The first major naval battle
of the Second World War, it was fought on 13 December 1939
between two apparently disparate forces: on the German side
Admiral Graf Spee, one of the much vaunted ‘pocket
battleships’; on the British side, three smaller and seemingly
much less powerful cruisers, Exeter, Ajax and Achilles.

There were all-wing aircraft flying before Northrop began what some considered a flying wing obsession, but he was dogged and determined, providing the basis on which the B-2 Spirit was eventually to be designed and built by Northrop Grumman.
