Battleship Bismarck : A Survivor's Story
by Burkard, Freiherr Von Mullenheim-Rechberg, et al (Hardcover - December 1990)
Battleship Bismarck: A Survivor's Story is a master piece of naval history. I have read this book several times and each time I have come away with more knowledge about Operation Rhine. The book is complete with details of the launch of the Bismarck at the Blohm & Voss Ship yards to its final destruction in the north Atlantic. The author has been very objective in his account of the Bismarck's maiden and final voyage. I also recommend the book "Pursuit" by Ludovick Kennedy which details the British side of this naval hunt.
Heavily illustrated with 200 contemporary photographs and line
drawings of the most significant ships, this book will be a vital addition
to the collections of naval historians and enthusiasts.
History is presented in many forms. I still remember my 6th grade history
class test, with a list of dates on the right, and historical events on the
left. My task was to draw lines between the two. I succeeded in drawing the
lines, but I didn't make the connection. Battleship Musashi transends
a "list of dates"; launch, displacement, number of guns (it's all there too).
I am presented with the flesh and blood of the ship and it's crew, in a way
that I have not experienced before from historical essays. The
writer shows me the minds of the people and government involved with the
ship, and though I know the final outcome for Musashi, I was rivited to the
account. In my opinion, this is a must-read book for those interested
in history, Japan, political science, or simply want a good spy story to
curl up with!
