    I would recomand this book to anyone interested in war stories as it deals a lot with strategy but includes a miracle as well. The evidence compiled traced events from the sinking of HMS Hood, to the ensuing Pan-Atlantic chase and the Royal Naval aircraft assault, before the Bismarck was eventually sunk. During this period, Rodney launched a pair of torpedoes at Bismarck, claiming one hit. At the beginning of April,the victorious German army had advanced into Yugoslavia and Greece in the Balkans and quickly occupied them. The hunt for the Bismarck is the topic of many books, movies and song. Despite the lateness of the day, it was decided to try again.

    Forester and one does get a feel for what a number of the participants must have felt. Victorious and her escorting cruisers were sent west, Wake-Walker's ships continued to the south and west, and Tovey continued to steam toward the mid-Atlantic. Shirer distinguished himself and quickly became known for his broadcasts from Berlin during the rise of the Nazi dictatorship through the first year of World War II. Our post-analysis conclusion was that the account from the German sailor,Burkard Baron Von Mullenheim-Rechberg who was the Aft Fire Control Officer, Pictured left is a more reliable source regarding the events surrounding the sinking of the Bismarck as he was an officer aboard the German battleship.

    At 65, tons, Yamato and Musashi carried nine immense inch guns, the largest ever mounted on a ship. A large part of the British Mediterranean fleet rushed to the scene to help the army, which faced another defeat. Destroyers, cruisers and, most effectively, U-boats were constructed in great numbers, but the queens of the sea would still be the mighty battleships. The Germans probably did try to keep the burned-out ship from falling into British hands by detonating preset charges on the ship's bottom. Large areas of London and other cities lay in ruins.
