5.0 out of 5 stars Does full justice to a gripping episode of WW2, 20 Aug. 2001
By 
J. O. Jonkler "Joe Jonkler" (Petersfield Hampshire UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Pursuit: The Chase and Sinking of the "Bismarck" (Cassell Military Paperbacks) (Paperback)
Perhaps the dearth of dramatic fiction concerning the Royal Navy in world war two is best explained by the sinking of the Bismark. This true story of the Royal Navy's quest for the most powerful warship of its day and its eventual destruction, is itself a story of such drama that one can hardly imagine how it can be bettered: Ludovic Kennedy does it full justice.

Its all here; the planning, the mistakes and the unexpected, which together shaped the sequence of events leading to both tragedy and triumph. The author's obvious familiarity with the subject informs, while his narratives excites. By the end of this book I almost felt as if I had witnessed the whole thing myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very Human version of events., 16 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Pursuit: The Chase and Sinking of the "Bismarck" (Cassell Military Paperbacks) (Paperback)
No need to read the last page as we all know what happens. Yes! but without this book you will never know the rhyme or reason for that end. Marvel at the tenacity of the Royal Navy, chuckle at the duplicity of the US Goverment, pity those of both sides whether they lived or died. This is the Human story with enough facts to satisfy all but the most proficient of anoraks. An excellent accompaniment for those who've read Dr. Ballard's book.
