Who first suggested that the most powerful battleships to serve with the Kriegsmarine be christened in honor of Chancellor Otto von Bismarck and Admiral Alfred von Tirpitz? Did the Kriegsmarine top brass have any admiration for the military genus and grit of von Bismarck and von Tirpitz, since von Tirpitz transformed the Imperial German Navy into a world-class navy on par with the Royal Navy?
