The break of the German battleship Bismarck into the North Atlantic in May 1941 was one of the most dramatic episodes of World War II. It began with a battle between the Bismarck and the British battleship Prince of Wales and the heavy cruiser Hood. The Hood was blown to pieces, while the battered Prince of Wales managed to escape. The British then focused all of their resources on hunting the mighty German battleship and eventually brought her down.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Konstam sheds new light on Bismarck's extensive armor systems and armament, British efforts to locate their quarry despite seemingly impossible odds, and the Nazi battleship's ultimate defeat. His book features more than 60 photographs drawn from museums and private collections, plus a few striking illustrations by Paul Wright." --Toy Soldier & Model Figure (August 2011)

"Konstam provides a basic yet sensible introduction to the topic and situates the Bismarck campaign in its historical context ... the selected illustrations and photographs ... complement the text nicely..." --Christopher Kretzschmar, The Northern Mariner
