Reseña del editor:

A gripping tale of heroism and doom on the high seas....

The sinking of the German battleship "Bismarck" a masterpiece of engineering, well-armored with a main artillery of eight 15-inch guns was one of the most dramatic events of World War II. She left the port of Gotenhafen for her first operation on the night of 18 May 1941, yet was almost immediately discovered by Norwegian resistance and Allied air reconnaissance. British battlecruiser "Hood" was quickly dispatched from Scapa Flow to intercept the "Bismarck," together with new battleship "Prince of Wales." They were ordered to find the ship quickly because, on their way from the USA, several large convoys were heading for Britain.

On 24 May, "Bismarck" was found off the coast of Greenland, but the ensuing battle was disastrous for the British. The "Hood" was totally destroyed within minutes (with only three crewmen surviving), and "Prince of Wales" was badly damaged. The chase resumed until the German behemoth was finally caught, this time by four British capital ships supported by torpedo-bombers from the carrier "Ark Royal." The icy North Atlantic roiled from the crash of shellfire and bursting explosions until finally the "Bismarck" collapsed, sending nearly 2,000 German sailors to a watery grave.

Tamelander and Zetterling's work rests on stories from survivors and the latest historical discoveries. The book starts with a thorough account of maritime developments from 1871 up to the era of the giant battleship, and ends with a vivid account, hour by hour, of the dramatic and fateful hunt for the mighty "Bismarck," Nazi-Germany's last hope to pose a powerful surface threat to Allied convoys."
