A HUGE bronze Nazi eagle from one of Hitler's most famous warships is to be sold at auction after it was salvaged off the coast of South America.

Bids have already reached £15million for the 6ft, 400kg bird - clutching a wreath with a swastika and designed by Hitler - taken from the wreck of the Admiral Graf Spee off Uruguay.

The ship fought the legendary Battle of the River Plate with four British cruisers led by Commodore Henry Harwood in the first major naval confrontation of the Second World War.
