Bismarck, the pride of the German navy, displaced more than 50,000 tonnes fully loaded and when commissioned she was the largest warship to date. The Bismarck took part in only one operation that ended with her sinking after just nine days. Three days earlier, she was engaged in a classic naval battle where she sunk Britain’s largest warship, the mighty HMS Hood.

Follow the fascinating story in Bismarck: Pride of the German Navy, the biggest ever written on the ship. Through photos, illustrations, maps and words, all aspects are described. The book also contains technical specifications, camouflage schemes, wreck photos as well as lists of officers, the fallen crew members and survivors.

THE AUTHOR

John Asmussen is an amateur naval historian who was studied the battleship Bismarck since 1977. In 2000, he published what today is the premier website on the Bismarck. In 2001-2002, he worked for director James Cameron on a $27.5 million dollar documentary project titled James Cameron’s Expedition Bismarck. In June 2002, he dived to the wreck of Bismarck together with Cameron. In 2004, he helped a Norwegian museum to present an exhibition on the Tirpitz.
