One of the most feared ships of the German Kriegsmarine, the mighty Bismarck was considered the most modern vessel afloat - and almost unsinkable.
"Feared by England as a major threat to the convoy routes that were her lifeline, the call was out to "sing the Bismark". For six days and over 1700 miles, the great ship was the object of a tense hide-and-seek through the stormy, ice filled North Atlantic waters. Crippled by an earlier attack by Brithish "Swordfish" aircraft, the Bismarck finally succumbed. Voooeys fo shells were sent into the vessel for more than an hour before her guns were silenced. Not until torpedoed at close range by the cruiser, Dorsetshire, did the feasome Bismarck sink to her death.."
