In May 1941, the German battleship "Bismarck" headed out into the North Atlantic to raid Allied shipping. She was accompanied by the "Prinz Eugen" and her pursuit was an epic of naval warfare. Found and shadowed by British cruisers, she was engaged by the "Hood" and the "Prince Of Wales". Within minutes, she had sunk the "Hood", the pride of the royal Navy, and damaged the latter.

The next few days were agonising for both sides. The "Bismarck" was attacked by Swordfish of the Fleet Air Arm, lost and then relocated, attacked once more and disabled. Now there was no choice for the pride of the Kriegsmarine but to run for safety and the French port of Brest. But then the battleships "Rodney" and "King George V" caught up with her.

This book covers the search for and the sinking of the "Bismarck".
