The Battleship Bismarckby Jack Brower
Synopses & Reviews
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, 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, 4800m down and 960km off the west coast of France. The Battleship Bismarck is the finest documentation of this famous ship ever published. What makes this and all 'Anatomy of the Ship' volumes unique is a complete set of superbly executed line drawings, both the conventional type of plan as well as explanatory views, with fully descriptive keys. These are supported by technical details, photos and a record of the ship's service history.
Complete with color references on the book cover as well as large scale plans on the interior flaps.
