I admire Bismarck and her strugle to survive and I belive that the Bismarck legend is the greatest of all time but also know that there was another even bigger ship sailing acrosss the oceans!!
It is shame that Yamato battletship is not so famous as Bismarck, because it was really the greatest ship ever created!
Too bad that her life was so short!

My friend a Sophmore,in highschool has a history class. They are currently studing WW2. What I found found distrubing was the total ommission of the battleship Bismark. This is supposed to be a history class concerning world history. I find the fact that a history book could totalty neglect one of the most fearsome weapons of WW2---mind-boggling!!!!

Realmente la página me partió la cabeza. Como un fanático desde chico de este increíble e irrepetible barco, me alegra muchísimo que exista un sitio en español tan completo. Ojalá sigan en la web y perfeccionándolo por mucho tiempo más. Tuve la fortuna de conocer la historia al leer "Perseguido" de Ludovic Kennedy. Quisiera saber que otros libros o videos subtitulados al español puedo conseguir del Bismarck.

Ante todo quiero felicitarlos por el sitio, está muy bueno y muy completo.
Me comenzo a interesar la historia del BISMARCK luego de ver un documental y ahora estoy armando una maqueta y me parecia que antes de armarla necesitaba saber toda la hiatoria de ese Coloso del sigloXX y gracias a ustedes lo pude conseguir.
Muchas gracias.

I'm looking for informations about my father (Giselher Dobberke, 25.10.1925 - 1975), who was soldier on "Prinz Eugen". Are there any lists of names of the soldiers on this ship?

I am glad that there is a site where people can learn about the History of the 20th century that forever changed the world we live in today.Battle on sea or land is fought by man not machine.I just hope that our children will learn from history and not repeat it.The crew of the Bismark fought to the very end because the had no choice.Today we have the power to stop War before men such as these have to die.

A former Member of the European parliament presented a genocide: Swedish nationalist Jörn Donner said in the newspaper "Johnny Kniga" 6/2003 that the Finnish language and its speakers should have been destructed in the 19th century. Donner has been a Social Democratic member of the European parliament (1996-99).
Donner's original Finnish text, "Johnny Kniga" 6/2003:
-"olisiko pitänyt säilyttää ruotsin kielen asema ja ajaa se koko maahan?"
=> "should we have killed all the Finns and replace them by the Swedes?"
Also Swedish professor Nesselius suggested in 1708 a genocide of the Finns, like many other Swedish nationalists after him - including many Social Democrats.
A genocide to come in today's Europe!?

Bizmarck & Iowa class ships are of two different designs! YOU COULD NOT MOVE THAT IOWA CLASS TIN CAN IN THE FIJORDS with any amount of ease against a BISMARK class with its slighter draft and superior beam! If an IOWA class ship were to take the cowardish point blank fire for 90 minutes that BISMARCK took (only sinking with the release of scuttling bombs -PROOF-) we would probably see a devastating reality that it is in thier heads that those ships (iowa class) were really THAT MUCH BETTER. Without thier "NUKES" and all of the modern tech those ships later gained, they FOR REAL are only BIGGER CHEAPER-BUILT(quality of materials-STEEL ect.) that if ever had to go into the lions den (the fijords) the theory of IOWA IS BETTER would very possibly be proven wrong with DEVASTATING RESULTS! LUCKY! none of our IOWA CLASS had to do such a thing. I am a lover of both classes of ships. I DO NOT FEEL THAT WITH THIER SOMEWHAT SUPRIOR ARMOUR & GUNNERY that 40s era IOWA would be able to just OVERPOWER BISMARCK and BISMARCK efforts would be small compared! It would be a jolt of luck for either to escape a run-in with the other! ONE ON ONE, I would put my money on the BISMARCK crew and tech than the 40s era IOWA!

Kriegsmarine strategy was wholly lacking in Bismarck's raid. Like Jutland and later, the Graf Spee, and Scharnhorst, it was another "death ride" to no purpose. It contributed nothing to their war. Thank God.
Counterfactual speculation: As single combat goes, it would have been interesting to see the Bismarck/Tirpitz go up against any Iowa Class BB's. The winner...Iowa Class by two lengths.

Firstly, I wanted to say that this is an excellent site and highly informative. Having read several books about the Bismarck it seems that Ernst Lindemann's authority and control of the ship during Operation Rheinuberg was overshadowed by Admiral Lutjens...and unfortunately so. Does anyone have any comments on that and can anyone testify as to the truth in that? For those interested, I recommend the book Battleship Bismarck by Burkard von Mullenheim-Rechberg, who was the highest ranked surviving officer.

Very intresting Site! As an old man, I have become an internet explorer. ( A Universe within itself. ) I`m currently doing a lot of research on Naval Battles of WORLD WARS I & II... As a young boy in Montevideo, I saw the Graf von Spee blow up in the River Plate estuary. To a degree the history of both warships is very closely linked.
Thanks again for this Site!

In looking at the crew list of the DKM Bismarck, I discoverd a crew member named Hermann Bohlmann. Since my family came to the USA from the fatherlan - wondering if he might have been a distant relative?

Great page dedicated to the Bismarck. Thanks for the time and effort put into the site. I am not only fascinated with the Bismarck, I am also sad by the great loss of life. Very educational and I plan to continue visiting the site. I will never forget The Bismarck nor the Hood Battleships or crew.

A very good site.It is so nice of you to provide such accurate and succinct information over this legendary battleship. I think that Bismarck and Tirpitz were the finest battleships of their time. Their service will remain rememberable.

Great site. I believe that the Bismarck sinking was a key turning point of the war. Had she not been sunk, Churchill may not've remained in power. With Britian out of the war, Hitler could've defeated USSR before Pearl Harbour. Both German and Brits seemed to get an extraordinary amount of good/bad luck during Bismarks operation.
