Light Cruiser SMS Karlsruhe, 1914

A light cruiser lost early in the war to an internal explosion while cruising in the Caribbean, she was a sister to the famous raider Emden.

There is an excellent page on Karlsruhe at German-Navy.de.

Special thanks to "SMS Wiesbaden" from u-boot-net.de for pointing out that I had mistakenly identified this ship as Karlsruhe (ii).
