The Prinz Eugen was the third and last heavy cruiser in service in Germany. She became famous in the Atlantic for cooperating with the Bismarck in sinking the Hood. In February 1942, Prinz Eugen, along with Scharnhorst and Gneisenau, successfully broke through the heavy blockade of the English Channel and returned to Germany. From the end of 1944 to 1945, in the face of rapidly advancing Soviet troops, she provided artillery support to a large number of retreating diasporas and troops on the Baltic coast. In May 1945, she surrendered to the British army in Copenhagen and was later handed over to the United States. In June 1946, she survived two nuclear tests on Bikini Atoll and was dragged to Kwajalein Atoll. On November 12, 1946, the Prince Eugen sank. Although severely injured many times, her crew affectionately referred to her as the "Lucky Battleship." In World War II, she was the only heavy warship surviving in Germany.
