BATTLE OF THE NORTH CAPE: The Convoy Assembles

One of the most dramatic naval battles of the Second World War - high in the Arctic Circle on Boxing Day, 1943. Al Murray and James Holland set sail for another Naval adventure as they track the sinking of the mighty Scharnhorst. Setting the scene for the Boxing Day 1943 battle - the boys lay out the need for the Arctic Convoy, the characters involved, and ask a question that has vexed many ever since: was the Scharnhorst a battleship or a battlecruiser?
