This issue, we’re giving away three copies of Hunt The Bismarck, courtesy of Osprey.
Drawing on expert research and first-hand accounts of the action, Hunt the Bismarck is a gripping and fast-paced narrative of World War II’s most dramatic naval chase.
Bismarck entered service in the summer of 1940. She was well armed, with eight 15-inch guns as well as a powerful array of lighter weapons, while her armoured protection had earned her the reputation of being unsinkable.
This claim was finally put to the test in May 1941, when she sortied into the Atlantic and fought in the legendary battle of the Denmark Strait, destroying HMS Hood, the pride of the Royal Navy. Bismarck was now loose in the North Atlantic. However, damage sustained in the battle limited her ability to roam at will, while the Royal Navy deployed the Home Fleet to avenge Hood.
The stage was set for the greatest chase in the history of naval warfare. Drawing on a wealth of first-hand accounts and extensive research, this thrilling new history from renowned naval historian Angus Konstam tells the story of Bismarck’s dramatic final voyage.
