The Sinking of the Bismarck by William L. Shirer

At 8:00 a.m. on May 21, 1941, a coded message arrived at the Admiralty in London. The Bismarck, the world's most powerful battleship, has been sighted heading for the North Atlantic.

Swiftly, the British organize an armada of fighting ships to pursue. Before the Bismarck can get a chance to fire on any of the British convoys, she must be sunk.

In this book William L. Shirer reconstructs the one-week chase. The fighting spirit, courage and endurance of both the British and the German officers and crews are vividly described in this dramatic authentic account of the sinking of the Bismarck.
