"Sink The Bismarck"
The massive German battleship, “Bismarck”, sunk on May 27, 1941—the ship’s ninth day of wartime operations.
The “Bismarck” represented such a grave threat to British shipping that The Royal Navy devoted virtually all of its resources to locating and attacking the great German vessel once the “Bismarck” ventured into the Atlantic for the first time.
Over 2100 German sailors died when the “Bismarck” went down, one of the greatest losses of life in any maritime disaster.
