The Sinking of the Bismarck: The Deadly Hunt (Sterling Point Books)

The Sinking of the Bismarck: The Deadly Hunt (Sterling Point Books) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Most tragic of all was the loss of the HMS Hood, the British Navys star battleship, sunk by the Bismark in just minutes. However, a mixture of luck and new technology—including radar—turned the tide in the Allies favor.
