An account of the WWII sea battle by the author of The Cay: “The story of the Bismarck is one of exciting high adventure, and [Taylor] captures it nicely.” —The New York Times
From the award-winning author, this is a compelling history of the sinking of British battlecruiser H.M.S. Hood in the cold waters of the North Atlantic in 1941. It was a great loss to the Royal Navy and resulted in the deaths of more than fourteen hundred sailors. Soon the Allies were in hot pursuit of the Bismarck, the German fleet’s biggest and most fearsome ship.
The Nazi battleship would meet its end just days after it sank the Hood—and this book tells the riveting story of this deadly confrontation at sea.
