The Bismarck is probably the most famous warship of WWII. The German battleship, 45,000 tons, was completed in early 1941 and went on to sink the ‘Mighty Hood’, pride of the Royal Navy. After a dramatic chase around the North Atlantic, Bismarck was finally dispatched less than five months after she was launched. Now available in paperback, The Battleship Bismarck, as a volume in “The Anatomy of a Ship” series, is the finest documentation of this famous ship ever published, providing a complete set of superbly executed line drawings, both the conventional type of plan as well as explanatory views including large scale plans on the interior flaps.
Jack Brower researched this book in the Bundesarchiv Kriegsmarine collection and through the original records of the shipyard of Blohm and Voss in Germany.
