This book deals both with the battle between the Hood and the Bismarck and the discovery of their wrecks.
The battle which took place on May 24,1941saw the Hood sink within a few minutes with only 3 survivors while the Bismarck was sunk 3 days later after a great chase and as demanded by Churchill.
In 2001 both wrecks were found and documentaries were made for Chanel 4.
This is a well written and researched account of the last days of these 2 great battleships and what was found when the wrecks were explored.
Excellent pictures and illustrations and a short bibliography.
