Episode 40 of Know Your Ship! In this educational video I cover the story of the De Ruyter. She was a unique, one of a kind light cruiser built by the Netherlands for service in South East Asia. As the flagship of Rear Admiral Karel Doorman of the ABDA Command she took part in many early battles against Japan in the Pacific. Anyways Captain’s sit back, relax and enjoy the story of the Dunkerque class battlecruisers.
