Product Description

Photograph of the Graf Waldersee ocean liner ship at sea. Photo dates to between 1900 and 1905.

USS Graf Waldersee, a 13,193 gross ton troop transport, was built in 1898-1899 at Hamburg, Germany, as the Hamburg-Amerika line passenger steamship of the same name. She spent World War I in Germany, and was taken over by the U.S. Navy following the end of the fighting. Commissioned at Spithead, England, in late March 1919, Graf Waldersee made three voyages to New York from Brest, France, between early April and late August, carrying more than 5600 war veterans and other passengers. On the foggy night of 11 June 1919, soon after departing New York for France, she was seriously damaged in a collision with the merchant steamship Redondo, but was repaired and returned to service. Decommissioned in November 1919 and turned over to the U.S. Shipping Board, Graf Waldersee was sold for scrapping in 1921.
