The Battleship Bismarck

Front Cover
Naval Institute Press, 2005 - History - 160 pages
0 Reviews
One of the most famous-and feared-battleships in the world, the Bismarck sank the HMS Hood, the pride of the Royal Navy, in early 1941 during one of the most celebrated naval encounters in history. Its demise came after a dramatic chase around the North Atlantic by the British, whose Home Fleet dispatched the warship in a barrage of gunfire and torpedoes. This new study of the ship's anatomy is more than double the length of standard works in the series and includes some 350 drawings, 40 photographs, and a large-scale foldout plan on the reverse side of the jacket. A draftsman by profession, the author presents fully keyed conventional and explanatory views of the ship that are breathtaking in their execution, and he offers a text that is filled with technical details.
