My father was given a comemorative plate by one of the survivors at the POW, camp in Nethy Bridge
Moray Scotland at the end of the war,it is very difficult to confirm that it came off the Bismarck. though he is no longer with us, he would have liked to prove its provinance.
I can supply photos of this item, & a press clipping of my father with his plate. I hope someone can help confirm. Thanks :

The Bismarck was a true battleship in the sense of the word. Very sad for it to be sunk with such a large loss of life, as was the loss of HMS Hood. Both beautiful ships both lost to the casualty of war.

I bough 4 range finders one 2 world war 3 first and 2.the one is from the Bismarch, its from one of the big guns and its four feet high and is made of Bronze. It has a badge, is by Carl Ziss.It is very heavy. One of the three is very odd,i think it was for low flying bye plains.

I have always been awed by the large battleships of WWII, the greatest of which , in my opinion, was the Bismark. I remember listening to the Johnny Horton song "Sink the Bismark" when I was only about 8 or 10 years old. 30 years later, I still remember the lyrics to that song. My interest at present is to build a wooden model of the Bismark, something about 5 or 6 feet long. I have been searching for kits for the past two years with no luck. I now realize that I will need to scratch build one. I am now in the process of looking for detailed plans of the hull contours and deck structures. The few photos that I have seen do not have the detail I was looking for. I have seen several other pre-built wooden models of the Bismark so I know there are plans and blueprints in existance somewhere. I just need to find them. If anyone reads this and can help me out, I would be eternally grateful.

bismark.tirpitz.and prinz eugen have to be three of the most truly beautiful warships ever built. my thoughts sre always with those crew members who did not live to see the end of the war no matter whose side they were on they were heros to their loved ones and i am very humbled by just reading about their demise.

This website of the most feared German Battleship of World War 2, is truly a worthy way to honor the Sons of Germany who sacrificed their lives for the good of the Fatherland. May this be an inspiration to the future generation and show them the past.

I have been interested in this ship since 3rd grade when my dad told me about Bismarck. I am German on his side so I have always been interested in the German battleships. My grandfather on mom's side was in the Royal Navy during WW2 so he was interested in talking about this and my great grandfather, his wife Rhoda and 2 sons immegrated from Germany. His 1 son later joined the air force and was stationed in Germany. I'm now 25 and still love reading about this ship. Thank you for creating this wonderful site

I Have a model of the Bismark made by a seaman from that ship likely in prison in Manitoba. My father acquired it at that end of the war. I am looking for some help in identifying who could have made it.

Nice site! I have always been fascinated by the story of the "Bismarck" and the Naval war in particular since my father was a sailor in the war, too! I wonder if there will ever be a great PC - Game with awesome graphices around the "Bismarck" - Story? If someone "in charge" reads this: PLEASE!?

Fine website- very informative. I have one suggestion- in the "Battleships of the Time" segment I think you should show USS North Carolina. It was commissioned in April 1941 and like Richelieu which you show was technically a neutral ship but very formidable.

The BEST thing the world can do is let these people slide into well-deserved anonymity. Really,should the world honor anyone who fought for Adolf Hitler? Nice site for its type though.

I just watched the movie, "Sink the Bismarck," and then found your site. I want to thank you for honoring the heroes of that behemoth of a ship. Although they were fierce adversaries of my country, USA, I believe it is proper and just to honor the men of either side.

I want to state that I also host a site that recognizes and pays tributes to the brave men of the Confederate Army, and do receive some flack for it. Why? Because they were a defeated foe, and the Victor has always been all too harsh, as well as very unkind, to the vanquished.
But again, they were all brave men, honorable men, and are worthy of our respect in the annals of world history…

Thanks for creating a website to do that!

I'm very much interested in getting in contact with Mr. Carsten Corleis who manages this part of the site, to obtain more info about the material in this article. Many thanks in advance A. Karlsdottir

after years of reading war books never have i been over so glad to hear these possible quite true accounts of BISMARK/TIRPIZ/AND ALL THE OTHERS

The Bismarck is often regarded as the most powerful battleship ever built. But really the IJN Yamato was much bigger and could probably sink the Bismarck. I'm not saying that the Bismarck was'nt a formidable ship, I just don't think people give the Yamato enough credit.

As an American naval veteran (born in 1950) and a lover of history, I can assure you that this one man holds the respect, honor, and sadness of the loss of life and this ship during this most difficult time in human history. I carry this in regards to the Bismarck as I carry the same concerning the Arizona, Lexington, Sharnhorst, Hood, Yorktown, Yamato, and the many other ships and crews from all nations involved in World War 2. It is my hope that in the findings of these graveyards of the deep, mankind will finally see the futility of war and the incalculable damage it brings. To my "brothers of the sea" and all
who have done their duty, I say, "God speed".

Please can someone direct me to any information concerning the crew members of the Ark Royal during the Bismarck battle. My farther was a crew member of the 15 Swordfish that attacked this great ship. I've been trying now for a number of years to get his military history but with not much success.

It is too bad Admiral Lutgens sent Prinz Eugene off on her own. She might have been able to tow Bismarck to safety after the stern torpedo hit.
