The last hours of the Scharnhorst told in tweets

Twitter is normally a social media channel where we people with maximum 140 characters can teaser a Story and then set a link for more details.

That you can also tell a whole story in “tweets” has been impressively shown by the Naval Historian Dr. Phil Weir who told the story of the “Sinking of the Scharnhorst” on Twitter.

To reward this great idea and to thank Dr. Weir for his work in keeping memories alive we’ve dedicated this page to the story fully featured in tweets.

Dr. Weir asked us to also thank the “excellent online archive & “, which we hereby naturally do with pleasure. **(see also his original message at the end of the story)
