The titles in Conway's highly acclaimed Anatomy of the Ship series are widely acknowledged as standard references in their field, providing accurate and comprehensive documentation of individual ships and classes. Selected titles are now available in a new paperback format, making the series accessible to a new generation of historians, scholars, enthusiasts and ship modelmakers. The Bismarck is probably the most famous warship in the world. The 45,000-ton German battleship was completed in early 1941 and went on to sink the 'Mighty Hood', pride of the Royal Navy, during one of the most sensational naval encounters ever. After a dramatic chase around the North Atlantic, involving many units of the Royal Navy, Bismarck was finally dispatched with gunfire and torpedoes on 27 May, less than five months after she was completed. Her wreck still lies where she sank, 4,800m down and 960km off the west coast of France. In this superb book Bismarck gets the comprehensive Anatomy of the Ship treatment, which includes a complete set of superbly executed line drawings with fully descriptive keys. These are supported by technical details, photographs and a record of the ship's service history. Complete with colour references on the book cover as well as large-scale plans on the interior flaps.
