German Pronunciation of Names of German WWII Warships
Many people don't know how some of the names of the German WWII warships should be pronounced correctly. Some names are easier to sort out than others. Here you find recordings on how the names should be pronounced originally (in German). The sound files are saved as "WAV" files. In order to use the "WAV" files you need a software application installed on your computer that support the "WAV" format, a sound card installed as well as speakers or a headphone set.
Speaker
In these sound files you hear the voice of Markus Titsch from Wilhelmshaven, Germany
