This site keeps the memory alive of those who died during the Bismarck chase, even if manely seen from Bismarck side of view! However, the story of Bismarck is not only a German story, it tells about the code of hounor in naval seawar!
If anyone should doubt about this, think about the remembrence of those who toke part of the rescue of sailers that survived the Bismarck tragedy. Woesn't there someone who tried to save a German sailor who had no arms left? A man named...........
From German side of view survivers granted this man a medal of hounor!
Me i think that just this "simple" human action shows what the meaning is of a naval code of honour: you may destroy eachothers ships, when things get more personal (seeing the "enemy" eye to eye) the good things in a man are just that little strain that decides between live and dead!
Keep up the good work telling all the world of this episode in Naval war that eventualy resolved in the destruction of a beautifull ship and, unfortunatly, resolved in the deade of so many jong and dedicated men, both German and Britisch!

One must debate all the "what ifs", I suppose but why? She was a warship, built for war and died by that for which She was built. The men who sailed and died with her did their duty. History has shown, that as long as leaders of nations wage war on one another, people die.

cuando pienso en las ultimas horas de vida de las personas abordo del BISMARCK, me entristece pensar que algunas personas que conformaban a los "aliados" dicen "esos bastardos merecian morir" , en la guerra y en el juego se conoce al caballero señores y me agrada pensar que los tripulantes del Bismarck murieron con valentia y con honor y no merecen ser tratados asi , sobre todo por que los britanicos fueron crueles con los alemanes despues de la guerra. Paz en la tumba de los tripulantes del Bismarck y el Hood.Exelente site sigan asi, los felicito de todo corazon

Felicitaciones, es un encuentro con la historia y como la historia la hacemos los seres humanos, es un encuentro con nosotros mismos.
Es muy emocionante recorrer la página y encontrar aspectos desconocidos de su vida como buque, como asimismo, a las personas que dieron vida a esta obra de la Ingenieria Naval.
Conocía al Bismarck por fuera....ahora le conozco el alma.
Gracias y guardemos el máximo de respeto por ésta noble amalgama de acero y hombres, que cruzó los mares tras un ideal.

Just a point: in the "easy quizz" about DKM Bismark I think I remember the question: "what was the most powerful _commissionned_ battleship in 1941. I gave, according to the test IJN Yamato and was told I was wrong.
Well, according to:
Yamato was commissionned in 1941... After the Bismark/Hood encounter, but in 1941.

Cheers, Claude

Recently started reading the book written by Ludovic Kennedy on the sinking of the Bismarck. This is the first site I visited that deals mainly about this great battleship and it's short life, and will visit frequently.

What a great operation to destroy the Bismark.
A classic struggle of good over evil.
My father on HMS Norfolk during the chase would
turn in his grave if he read some of the comments
on this website.

Congratulations, your page is more than good. It was a piece of good work to gather all the informations about this battleship. You play in the same league as creators of famous Encyclopedia Titanica (www.encyclopedia-titanica.org) - for me the best marine/naval/historical webpage. But I've one question; where is the picture rendered in 3D Studio Max (probably) , which i've seen on main page in 1999? I'm very interested in this - ???

I was browsing on the internet for info on the Bismarck on Google.ca when i came up to this site. Which was after i went to a site saying it was about the Bismarck, but was actually about the canadian government or something around that but anyway. It had all the info and more than i needed on it for the paper i choose to do on it mostly because there was a show on it on the history chanel (Cable 55). I was so intreaged about it and yet sad about how many people who had died. Out of around 2,200 people only 100 or so survived. 2,100 families never saw there son or father or what ever had been on that ship never saw them again.

In the words of seaman Briggs one of the 3 survivors of the Hood, on the Bismarck's sinking " she put up damn good fight!" Just seen the History Channel's brilliant "Sink the Bismarck". What an insight into Lutjens and Lidermann(sp) and their different approaches to command. One can only wonder what might have happened if both ships had persued the Prince of Wales as the captain of the Bismarck had wanted and then rushed back to the safety of Norway. A fantastic site guys and a fitting homage to all the brave men that served on the Bismarck and the Hood.

Das ist eine wirklich sehr schöne Seite.
Schade das man nicht mehr solcher Seiten im Netz findet. Ich finde es gut, daß die Engländer nicht als Helden dargestellt werden ( sind sie auch nicht ). Daß die BISMARCK getroffen, und Manövrier unfähig war, war reines Glück.
Schade das "wir" Deutschen nicht mehr so großartige Schiffe bauen dürfen. Sonst hätten wahrscheinlich die Engländer wieder Angst.

Bravo aux valeureux marins de la Kriegsmarine et aux concepteurs de ce site.
Quelle émotion de trouver les photographies des participants de cette épopée plus de soixante ans plus tard!
Je regrette seulement de n'avoir découvert ces pages que récemment.
Pourvu que ce site s'agrémente de nouvelles photographies des héros. Encore merci aux Webmasters.

Superb site, though a bit pro german. Hood received a (un)lucky hit while in a vulnerable position (to plunging fire). If not, Bismarck would be in trouble for the british gunnery had got the range by the time she was destroyed.

Bismarck and Hood, two ships, two countries, two enemies. 2003, England and Germany are friends. Our languages have the same root. I hope, There will be no war again between our countries and the whole world. No war, never again, for all times. Merry Christmas
and peace on earth.

Super web page. Just tonight on our local PBS station I watched the two new documentarie stories on the HMS Hood and the Bismarck in finding them. Then also they had the story about the sinking of the liner HMS Lusitania off Ireland.
Looking through the ship roster of the Bismarck, and being an old US Navy man myself I was able to figure out several of the positions for the men that you did not have listed.
One fella for sure is a Signalman, (which is between ship communication by flags and flashing light) several were Boatswain Mates, (which is cables, anchors, stearing and general deck cleanup)and there were several Machinest Mates, (which is engines and machines just as it says). Now as to rank that is a total different thing. But the job or "POSITION" is still the same no matter what the rank is. You can only do so much on a ship.You doint switch jobs or positions to easy in the service once you are trained for it. I'm sure that was true even in their navy.
