Publisher Description

During World War II, the German Navy incorporated an unstoppable behemoth of a battle ship. The Sinking of the Bismarck documents its rise and incredible fall.

The German Navy was a fearsome superpower during WWII, and perhaps the crown jewel in its attack fleet was the juggernaut named Bismarck.

This 41,000-ton behemoth was crewed by nearly 2,000 soldiers, over 100 officers, and boasted four weapons batteries and two anti-aircraft guns. Not to mention over forty other mounted guns, space for multiple floatplanes, and an aircraft catapult; The Bismarck was a serious threat to Allied Forces on the water.

In May 1941, Bismarck broke out into the North Atlantic, threatening the transatlantic shipping lanes that were vital to Britain's survival. This is the gripping tale of the Royal Navy's hunt for the most powerful sea raider in history. This incredible history documents the tireless search, and unlikely defeat of this mighty ship.
