A LIBERTY VERSUS A GERMAN RAIDER

What your are looking at here is the launching of the SS Stephen Hopkins...a Liberty ship...sliding down the ways and ready to serve her country.
Now I don't have to go into great detail here, but most people know that the Liberty ship was not built to be a "warship"....she was built as a transport 'cargo' from point A to point B.
Well.....this is one case where a Liberty ship kicked ass on a German Raider.
I really do think the reader will find this an extremely interesting article.  German ships are involved, as well as British, and US vessels provides excellent facts on just what happened...to the German raider Stier.

Yes it does start off where you wonder...where is this article going....well just hang in there....read it slowly....and I believe you'll find glued to the article.

I hope you find the article interesting...and don't be afraid to let me know what you think
