In 1941, Hitler’s deadly Bismarck, the fastest battleship afloat, broke out into the Atlantic. Its mission: to cut the lifeline of British shipping and win the war with one might blow. How the Royal Navy tried to meet this threat and its desperate attempt to bring the giant Bismarck to bay in six mad days of driving Atlantic storm is the story C. S. Forester tells with mounting excitement and suspense.
C.S. Forester was born in Cairo, Egypt, in 1899, the son of a British Army officer. After service in the infantry in World War I, he began his writing career. In 1937 he wrote the first Horatio Hornblower novel. This would become a series of international best selling sea adventure novels that would make him one of the most acclaimed writers in the 20th century. Forester was also the author of the African Queen, which was made into a movie starring Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn. He died in 1966.
