Overview

The Bismarck is perhaps the most famous—and notorious—warship ever built. Completed in 1941, the 45,000-ton German battleship sank HMS Hood, the pride of the British Royal Navy, during one of the most sensational encounters in naval history. Following the sinking, Bismarck was chased around the North Atlantic by many units of the Royal Navy. She was finally dispatched with gunfire and torpedoes on May 27, 1941, less than five months after her completion. Her wreck still lies where she sank, nearly 3 miles down and 596 miles off the west coast of France.

Drawing on new research and technology, this edition is the most comprehensive examination of Bismarck ever published. It includes a complete set of detailed line drawings with fully descriptive keys and full-color 3D artwork, supported by technical details, photographs, and text on the building of the ship and a record of the ship’s service history.
