Published 2015, 160 pages, black & white and colour photographs and illustrations, hardcover, 8 1/2" x 11"
In this, the first Haynes Manual about a Second World War warship, acclaimed maritime author and historian Angus Konstam gives readers a detailed insight into the design, fighting capability and short-lived career of Nazi Germany's greatest warship. He tells the Bismarck's story, from her origins in the aftermath of the Great War and the Versailles Treaty, including Germany's capital ship building program, her design, building, launch and fitting out, to her sea trials and eventual commissioning into the Kriegsmarine.
A detailed insight into her design, combat capability and short-lived fighting career that ended in her destruction by the Royal Navy in 1941. The anatomy of the Bismarck is examined in detail, including her construction, armoured protection, propulsion, weaponry, gunnery direction, the bridge, sensors, steering and crew quarters.
The Bismarck, probably the most famous and feared Nazi German battleship of the Second World War, was sunk in the North Atlantic on 27 May 1941 by the Royal Navy. More than 70 years after its demise the Bismarck and its loss continue to fascinate. In 1989 Dr Robert Ballard, of Titanic discovery fame, rediscovered the wreck of the Bismarck on the ocean floor at a depth of nearly 16,000ft, reigniting popular interest in the story of the ship.
