    She was the sister ship of the famous commerce raider SMS Emden. While the Emden still had traditional triple-expansion engines, the Dresden was the first German cruiser to be equipped with the new Parsons turbines. She's one of the famous WWI ships involved in The Battle of the Falklands, surviving only because of her unique engines en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS_Dresden_(1907)

    Very interesting comments and nice photo. Uqbar Editores published this year "Señales del Dresden" (in Spanish), a historical novel that through its narrative shows the Chilean adventure of the SMS Dresden in the Patagonia fiords. www.antartica.cl/antartica/servlet/LibroServlet?action=fi...
