ADMIRAL ALFRED VON TIRPITZ
(1849 - 1930) German Grand Admiral, Secretary of State of the German Imperial Naval Office. Tirpitz took the modest imperial navy and turned it into a force that could threaten Britain's Royal Navy. Typed document on his State Secretary of the Reichs-Marine-Department letterhead, 2 pp., 8.25 x 13 inches, Berlin, 21. March 1908, to the Chief of Staff of the Admiralty of the Navy, ordering the re-design of German nautical charts to prevent the use of foreign charts, mainly the British charts. The main issue being the different compass rose requirements by the navy, the merchant marine, and the inland marine. Signed by Tirpitz in black ink at the conclusion, mailing folds. Very good.
