The famous war correspondent delivers an edge-of-your seat account of the naval chase and battle to take out one of Hitler's most powerful warships.   The Bismarck wasn't just any warship. Its guns were much stronger and more accurate than any others in its day--meaning it could easily sink enemy ships without getting in range of their fire. It was one of Hitler's most powerful weapons, and the Allied forces had to put it out of commission--before they lost the war. With the fate of the world in the balance, Allied forces chased the Bismarck across the stormy North Atlantic--culminating in a thrilling sea battle that changed the course of World War II.   Unfolding with the taut suspense of a blockbuster movie, this book brings the excitement and danger of World War II to younger audiences--and demonstrates William L. Shirer's mastery as a writer of history and a spinner of tales.   "A book one reads with sustained excitement." --Kirkus Reviews… (més)

A short but detailed description of the hunting and sinking of the Bismarck. Not overly personal or detailed, but still a good description of the event. ( )

Back in print! It was May 1941 and the British were struggling to hold back the Germans (this is of course before the United States had entered World War II). Since the summer of 1940 the Germans had access to the harbors and airfields of western Europe from Norway to southern France. Their submarines, warships and bombers were wreaking havoc on Britain's supply convoys crossing the Atlantic which was seriously threatening Britain's survival. It was at this time that the British admiralty learned of the imminent release of the new German battleship Bismarck, the most powerful warship afloat in the world. This is the story of the week-long chase by the British who were hoping to prevent further losses to their precious convoys by destroying the battleship. This very accurate account is more exciting and suspenseful than fiction partially because we realize how much is at stake. It is such a game of nerves and logic, but the interesting tales of "luck" and unbelievable human error might make the reader wonder (okay, it made me wonder) whether Divine Providence had a direct hand in the final outcome. Most appropriate for mid-gradeschool through high school (and plenty interesting for adults too!). It's suspenseful, but not too scary or graphic to be read aloud in front of younger siblings.
