Bismarck: 24 Hours to Doom Reviews

A powerful and moving cinematic study devoted to what has to be the most dramatic event of the Second World War at sea.

-- Julian Stockwin, author of the Thomas Kydd Series of naval adventures in the Age of Fighting Sail
By drawing on the first-hand experiences of veterans in the thick of the action, Iain Ballantyne has produced a deeply researched and unputdownable account of the hunt for the Bismarck that is at once authoritative, insightful and highly readable. -- Rowland White, author of Harrier 809 and Vulcan 607
