The story of the loss of the Hood and the hunt for the Bismark is well known. This book gives a fascinating insight to this momentous event from the viewpoint of those on Bismark. The detail of the encounter with Bismark and the chase that followed are well presented. The views and state of mind of those commanding the ship are a relealing insight into the way German ships were operated under Hitler.
The author was picked up by the British after it sank, and you get an interesting story of like as a POW in Britain.

Best book on the Bismark 16 Feb. 2006
By ajsim58 - Published on
Although the book started a little slow and dry, it turned out to be a very outstanding book. The book was written from an officer who survived the battle, and it doesnt get any better than this. The author did a lot of research, and the facts were correct. But the most interesting feature was that you got to see what was going on in the German mind during the entire operations. The author started with a brief history of the Bismark, a brief background of his own career, as well as Admiral Lutjens and the captain of the ship. He posed many interesting "what if" questions through out the final cruise of the battleship. The content and the material of the book was well organized, flowed well, and it was an easy book to read: 250 pages, short chapters, maps, many photographs. If you are tired of reading books about this subject from British or American authors, then this is a refreshing change of perspective. Very highly recommended!
