This fine two-page spread, "Secrets of German's New Pocket Battleship "Deutschland" and Her Wonderful Engines" appeared in Popular Mechanics in September 1931. I'm not sure offhand how the Weimar government was able to build this ship and abide by the Versailles Treaty, but it did. The ship--a 610' heavy cruiser, also known as a pocket battleship--saw a lot of action during WWII, mostly under the name of Luetzow, as it was called after a major upfitting. Anyway by 1939 the ship's engines were probably not seen as being so "wonderful", any more.
