December 17, 1939: Admiral Graf Spee at anchor at Montevideo, Uruguay just before departing.

This Day in History: German pocket battleship/surface raider Graf Spee engages 3 RN cruisers in the Battle of the River Plate. Taking light damage herself (and dishing out severe damage), she sought sanctuary in the port of Montevideo (pictured).

Admiral Graf Spee participated in five international operations patrolling in Spanish waters from 1936 to 1938 because of the Spanish Civil War. On these photos the crew rest on the forecastle and around the forward 28 cm SK L/52 C28 main turret.

Two 'R' class battleships are in the background: famously, HMS Royal Oak (probably one of those shown) was sunk in the anchorage by U 47 in October that year.
