I decided to put the article at "Battleship Deutschland" because the other two of this class are also under "Battleship", and rather than list her as "Battleship Lutzow" (a name she only held for a few months, before being re-classified as a heavy cruiser), I listed her under her original name.

I guess this is particularly true as it's the name ship of the class, as given in the 'Pedia. Noel 22:45, 29 Oct 2004 (UTC)

how come this link: (from this page)

points to German pocket battleship Deutschland???

these two are totally unrelated! One was a "Deutschland" renamed into Luetzow, the other one, launched as Luetzow, was sold to USSR. AlexUki

I split German_cruiser_Lützow into a dismabig to the two ships. GraemeLeggett 13:59, 20 April 2006 (UTC)


Alrighty, I don't know about you folks, but usually ships are referred to as "she," not "it." So far as I know. It might be that the Germans did things differently, so I'm not sure if I should change it. I'll let folks debate it here and figure it out. Enjoy. --Phant 22:11, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

This doesn't make sense[edit]

"As retaliation the sister ship Admiral Scheer bombarded Almería killing 19 civilians and destroying 35 buildings ([1]). The dead were first brought to Gibraltar and buried there but the bodies were exhumed on Hitler's orders and accompanied the Deutschland back to Germany for a large military funeral with Hitler attending". Obviously it wasn't the Almeria civilians who were brought to Germany. I am editing the passage accordingly. L'omo del batocio 07:40, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
