History During the battle of the Falklands, the German Imperial Navy lost 4 of her cruisers SMS Gneisenau, SMS Scharnhorst, SMS Leipzig and SMS Nurnberg in a battle against the superior Royal Navy battleships HMS Inflexible and HMS Invincible. The Germans, unaware of the presence of the British battleships started attacking the Falklands in order to get control of the Island. This gave the British fleet time enough to stop coaling and to prepare the attack. The British then suddenly apperared and overwhelmend the cruisers. All 4 of them were sunk. Only SMS Dresden escaped. Two other ships, the fleet´s colliers Santa Isabel and Baden were also sunk in the battle.
