Dear readers. How in the world, people can give a judgement about a ship like the Bismarck. With a ship it is like with a beautiful woman. You love her or not. For me it is more than thad. I admire here. With tears in my eyes I salute the brave man going down with here. Friedie.

I think your site is a very good site. But i think that if there was a way to put on your site the deck plans of the bismarck it would make it even better. since that is what some peaple what to see as well.

I happened upon your site while looking for information about this great German battleship. Your site is superb, the might and brilliant design of this magnificent war ship is well presented. May the brave men who sailed on both sides of the conflict forever rest in peace! Theirs is the honor. They did their duty well!

A brilliant model of a very beautiful ship. I served with the Royal Navy for fifteen years and love ships, and Germany sure knew how to build them! I do believe that all sailors of whatever navy would now, as well as then, do their duty. That's the navy way.

I am a big enthusiast of naval warfare and have several books and movies about the subject. I've been interested in naval history for a couple of years and the history of the Kriegsmarine is extremely fascinating.
I strongly recommend other naval enthusiasts to also check out other great "kriegsmarineschiffs" such as Tirpitz, Scharnhorst and Gneisenau, the three heavy cruisers and the pocket battleships although Bismarck is my favourite. I just love the look of that ship in camouflage stripes, not to mention her performance and measures.
Mail me if you wanna discuss, share information or simply just talk about "kriegsmarineschiffs"

Yes, I know Bismarck very well... ALSO I have been executing a project called "Bismarck is alive" "Bismarck yasýyor (in Turkish)" Ýt involves banknotes. I have been writing on the backside of them "Bismarck" and give them to contribution for almost 3 years...

La ideología que promovió la construcción del "Bismarck" es para mí despreciable. Pero la naturaleza humana es contradictoria y reconozco que cuando envuelve a la historia de este extraordinario buque, me interesa y me fascina.

The Bismarck was a good ship! He made history! WWII is the best subject I love! I read about the Bismarck and othe ships! He finish off the Prince of Wales! If Lutjens listen to lindemann the Bismarck retreat from Exercise Rhine with two kills! The Bismack live another day. The Kriegsmarine plan to upgrade Bismarck and Tirpitz with 16" guns. I am a fan of the battleship Bismarck!

Este buque fue el mejor acorazado en toda la Marina Alemana, lástima que no pudo entablar una batalla favorable en contra de los aliados y si el Prinz Eugen no se hubiera separarado, ganaría esa batalla contra la poderosa Royal Navy.

Hola amigos de esta página tan buena deseo hacerles saber que cuando lei toda la informacion de esta su página, me quede mas impresionado aun, con todo lo que ella contiene, y deseo expresar que, cuando a uno le fascina esto de la segunda guerra mundial, y mas de este acorazado pues se pone triste con su trágico final, aunque asi es como se vence a un titan; por si solo ya que lo ingleses nunca le pudieron hacer nada, ni aun con su mejor acorazado, que fue partido en dos en solo 7 mins. De todo corazon pido por el descanso de todas las victimas de esta cruel guerra y principalmente de la batalla en el mar.
pd: no se si les pase que cuando una oye hablar del Bismarck como lo hacen uds hasta se pone la piel chinita, porque parece que se habla de un gran heroe, que murio por sus ideales con la frente muy en alto, y asi fue la muerte de este bello ejemplar.
Gracias por su atencion y escribanme personas que piensen como yo mil gracias.

Bismarck: a brute of a ship, powerful, imposing, threatening, designed to be intimidating. Ludovic Kennedy was right about that. Not a beautiful ship: not graceful like the Hood. Bismarck's crew, though were very brave: no white flag for them. Lutjens: psychologically very interesting, but out of reach of all psychologists now. Why did he, inadvertently?, demoralise his crew with his last ship-wide broadcast?

In the book Stockholms Enskilda Bank and the Bosch Group, 1939-1950, the relations between the Bosch Group and the Stockholms Enskilda Bank (SEB) have been examined in connection with the economic role of neutral countries and Germany during World War II. The Swedish SEB purchased Bosch Group companies outside Germany during 1939-1940, creating an association with Nazi Germany which colored SEB's international reputation during the post-war years.
The Boston Globe published Walter V. Robinson's article Sweden probes a dark secret (July 6, 1997).
But a darker chapter is being written now about the Wallenberg family and its extensive business empire, as Sweden confronts dismaying new evidence that the country's wartime collaboration was more extensive than is widely known, and that the Wallenberg family profited from secret dealings with the Nazis. For instance, documents from World War II contain evidence that Jacob and Marcus Wallenberg, Raoul's cousins, used their Enskilda Bank to help the Nazis dispose of assets seized from Dutch Jews who died in the Holocaust.

I have just read Pursuit the Sinking of Bismarck and also the Discovery of the Bismarck. Both books show the many feelings good and bad connected to this great feat of enginieering and an insight into the brave men of all ranks who sailed in her. God bless them all.

Me gusto mucho la información que tienen ustedes acerca de tan magnífico buque de guerra, es una lástima que haya tenido tan dramático final sin poder entablar una verdadera batalla para el cual estaba diseñado. Una pregunta, ¿porqué no senalizaron o pidieron la rendición del buque la tripulación al ver el desenlace de lo que los esperaba? Saludos y felicitaciones por su trabajo.

I don't care what people say. The Bismarck was the most beautiful, powerfull ship ever. And it was German! Deutschland uber alle. God bless the men of the Bismarck and Tirpitz. The pride of the royal navy sunk in 8 minutes. Impressive.

I have to correct myself: the book "Pursuit" by L. Kennedy can be found on the book page of this site (don't know how I overlooked it), and it is also definitely available from Amazon and B&N. So if you're planning on buying a few books about the "Bismarck", consider to include that one, too!

This is really an excellent web site: thorougly researched, very extensive, and professionally designed. I really hope the authors will find the time and money to continue this page! Here is another very interesting book about the sinking of the Bismarck, which I didn't find in the book selection of this page:
"Pursuit" by Ludovic Kennedy
Kennedy was serving on a Royal Navy destroyer at the time and is actually an eyewitness of the action. The book is written in a very good style, and not at all prejudiced against either the British or German side. So I can only recommend it! It has been recently re-published by "Cassell Military Paperbacks" in the UK, but I don't know if it's available from Amazon and/or Barnes and Nobles, although it very likely is.
Cheers and regards, Thomas

Embarressed to say - his name was Erich Giese and the ship was the Z12. It was sunk in 1940 while part of the Kriegschiffgruppe 1 in a battle with 6 British destroyers.

Edward J. Giese | E-mail
Wonderful web site; very up-to-date and informative. My great-grandfather had a destroyer named after him in the second war. It left Kiel in 1939 - Albert Giese (Z-45) I think. My wife's father was in the SS on the Eastern Front; I find it interesting to hear "war stories" from him and see how they sound next to the "American Versions" you often read about.

This site is an excellent resource with a lot more detail than many other sites have especially regarding the exact armour scheme of the Bismarck. The artwork is quite breathtaking, it is a pity that there aren't higher resolution images available (or are there?). I think that it is one of the most dramatic wartime stories and this site is a good place to go to read more. Cheers!

Camaradas, este es el sitio mas fascinante para mi en la web. No hay dia desde 1998 cuando lo descubri, en que no mire algun detalle de la pagina. Desde que aprendi a leer, lei el relato condensado del libro Pursuit, llamado > en Selecciones y desde entonces ese episodio naval ha estado en mi mente y en mi corazon.
Hace poco logre conseguir el libro de Ballard, asi como el del distinguido Baron Mullenheim-Rechberg. Tengo varios modelos del navio y otros navios de la Kriegsmarine ya que tambien soy aficionado a la Kriegsmarine en especial a los buques grandes de superficie y a los implacables "Lobos Grises". Invito a todos aquellos que quieran compartir informacion a escribirme.
Al amigo Jose M. Rico: Te felicito por tan magnífica página y agradezco tu deseo de compartir con todo el mundo tu afición por nuestro querido barca, sin egoismos de ninguna clase. FELICITACIONES!!
Dear comrades, if you wish to share (in two ways of course) information about this subject, please contact me via e-mail. Enjoy this great web page!!

Was in college at the time of the battle and was much impressed by it, having no idea that within a few months I would be stationed in Iceland near where it happened. Many good men on both the Bismarck and the Hood lost their lives and two fine ships were destroyed. Thanks for the information.

Frode Groven
I have allways been fascinated of the German warships, as the Caesar turret from Gneisenau, is mounted on land, near to wear I live (Ørland, Norway). Its really huge, and I can imagine how big these ships were. Also, Tirpitz was operating very much in Norway. The heavy cruiser "Blucher" even to day leaks oil, a oil slick can bee seen in the Oslo fjord. Blucher will continue to leak oil for at least 20-30 years more (30 litres each day!!) In september 2000, they found the wreck of SCHARNHORST, north of Norway. A documentary were shown on Norwegian TV a few weeks ago. Very special indeed. I suggest you to come to Norway and visit the Gneisenau turret in Ørland. Write me for details about how to get there. The best, Frode
