Finally, the author takes us into the final showdown, as battleships Rodney and King George V, supported by cruisers Norfolk and Dorsetshire, destroy the pride of Hitler's fleet. This vivid, superbly researched account portrays this epic saga through the eyes of so-called 'ordinary sailors' caught up in extraordinary events. Killing the Bismarck is an outstanding read, conveying the horror and majesty of war at sea in all its cold brutality and awesome power.
A timely look at the destruction of the Bismarck as the first part of a meter-annd-a-half long partwork model is on sale in the newsagents. I remember reading a book called Sink The Bismarck in my early teens — I would have loved to read this back then, and still enjoy such wartime accounts now. Given the exceptionally well-known and well-documented nature of Bismarck's sole operation and her actions, pursuit and sinking, it may well be wondered whether there was anything genuinely new left to say on the matter.
However, Ballantyne has succeeded in obtaining new first-hand acconuts which have been added to the narrative. Overall, Killing the Bismarck is an excellent one-volume overview of the Bismarck affair, with a particular emphasis on the Royal Navy's part.
Killing the Bismarck: Destroying the Pride on Hitler's Fleet
Killing the Bismarck is delivered with the verve of a novel, taking the reader on a roller-coaster ride across stormy seas. This book provides a harrowing insight into the unremitting cruelty of war at sea and takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride in which each twist and turn yields new shocks. Not content with just publishing the original account in a new format, Ballantyne has added 18 pages of new material to the paperback. The telling of the final battle in which Bismarck is despatched is a lesson in the sheer cold murder of close up combat between capital ships.
The author gives us a real sense of the remorselessness of the sea on the body and mind; the horrific effects of explosives on a ship and on the flesh of its sailors. He conveys the meaning of the totality of warfare upon the great waters. Products Authors Categories Series.
