The Bismarck Episode (1948) (Paperback)
The British Navy’s sinking of a notorious symbol of Nazi Germany, the battleship Bismarck, in May 1941 ranks as one of the most significant victories of the Second World War. It was imperative that Britain find and destroy the Bismarck, a true threat to Britain’s ocean lifeline, before it could escape into the Atlantic. In The Bismarck Episode a veteran naval writer tells the intense and dramatic story of how the battleship was discovered, pursued, and ultimately destroyed.
This book is gripping. Ideal for someone who simply wants to know the history without the excessive detail or opposing viewpoints, the story could almost be a fiction adventure book.Murray Bell
