School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-- A striking cover is just the beginning of a fine addition to World War II collections. An exciting introductory chapter covers the 1989 discovery of the Bismarck on the floor of the east Atlantic. The remainder of the book is devoted to the history of this once hated and feared warship. Brief chapters discuss the ship's history, its early construction and launching, its encounter with the Hood , and the final battle that sent it to the bottom of the sea. Large print and wide margins make the text inviting. Two four-color maps showing the last voyage of the Bismarck are included with the many vintage photos. Captions give additional information. This attractive volume is a rare find in that almost everything else on this topic is on a much higher reading level. --Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS
