This ship, along with two other classes of "Deutschland", was called a "pocket battleship", and for good reason. While conceding to other heavy cruisers at cruising speed, Admiral Graf Spee however, could escape from the pursuit of battleships. Being superbly armed (six 280mm guns, and as many as eight 150mm guns), this German heavy cruiser, thanks to a powerful diesel power plant, also had a huge operational range. Admiral Graf Spee sailed the Atlantic Ocean from the beginning of the Second World War, and in early November 1939, reached the Indian Ocean. It sunk English cargo ships, and remained unnoticed by English warships during the course of its raids. Finally, on December 13 1939, Admiral Graf Spee had met its match: it stumbled upon a squadron of British cruisers from near the La Plata in the South Atlantic, and here the first major naval battle of the Second World War was fought. The German cruiser, with heavy fire, expelled the strong English Exeter cruiser from the battle and began to retreat, but the other two enemy light cruisers pursued it. Admiral Graf Spee needed repairs and retreated to neutral Uruguay, but the disinformation provided by the British about an overwhelming force being gathered at the exit from La Plata was successful. On December 17, the crew left the "pocket battleship", and that same evening, it was scuttled in neutral waters.
