Nice page! I'm a hobby "historian" and ended up reading alot about the Bismarck, after starting a band called "die Bismarck project"(not named after Otto Von). I hope to have a home page some day with some of the music on it..

I found your site by going into Google for Heller, and am very glad. Your site has a lot of very valuable information, especially for someone just getting back into modelling from teen years. The pictures and descriptions are superb.
I hope to get a series of all the major capital ships regarding the Bismarck and also regarding Pearl Harbor. (My mother's high school sweetheart, just 6 months & 2 weeks from graduation, is still on the U.S.S. Arizona.) I would like to get a display of Pearl, Ford Island, with the bb's on it and also the major Japanese ships, but that will be a major undertaking needing a lot of space. Thanks, again for a terrific site. All modelers should have it bookmarked.

I have always loved learning about the Bismarck. I find sunken ships and their stories very facinating.

This site is exactly what I was looking for! I'm doing a report for one of my college classes and have chosen the Bismarck. I am a follower and admirer of the Bismarck and now I'll be able to pass on the history of this magnificent ship!!

The images and statistics of the mighty Bismarck are awesome and staggering when one imagines the power and potential this singular ship had to destroyer/disrupt everything the Allies put on the Atlantic sealanes. Churchill obviously knew this and his orders to the RN and RAF to "Sink the Bismarck" sent thousands of men to their deaths. But had the Bismarck escaped death, that ship's presence and warring activities in the North Atlantic and elsewhere could have changed the complexion of the Second World War in those crucial early years.
Your pages are well-designed and -illustrated and serve as a small tribute to the thousands of British and German sailors who lost their lives during that great high-seas naval encounter more than 60 years ago.

I always be frighten and fascinated how beautiful and proud these warships look and for what a cruel and deathly job they are built. Not only the Bismarck, many warships of all centuries. Very nice and informative site about a period I hope that will never come back. So many people lost their lives senseless.

Hoping you can help. We recently buried an 84-year-old indigent who went by the name of Talmage V. Weech. A friend of his, in conversation, says Mr. Weech claimed to be a survivor of the sinking of the Bismarck, picked up by the Dorsetshire. He also claimed to have changed his name on coming to Canada c1943, possibly from Adolf Eich or Adolf Kunkel. (His friend - certain his name was Adolf - is hoping he has notes somewhere, but as yet can't find them). Have you any idea what happened to either Adolf? We'd like to give this man the recognition he deserves. Thank you.

Your web site is very informative. A fine tribute to a great ship and and crew. I wonder how things would have turned out if she had chased down the Prince of Wales instead of resuming her attempt to get out into open water to sink convoys? Too bad we will never know.

As a child the Bismarck has always held a deep respect for me. The bravery of the crew ae (in my opinion) unsurpassed. I am Scottish and most of my generation (I am 51 years young) have great friendship towards the German people, and feell sorrow for the loss of such a great ship and fine crew.

This is one of the finest web sites I have visited. The Bismarck was one heck of a ship; sorry that she could not be saved and be on display now.

Correction! Esmond Knight was wounded and lost most of his sight when the Bismarck attacked The Prince of Wales, immediately after sinking Hood. This website tells about a very courageous man...

I believe the actor Esmond Knight was one of the three survivors of the Hood. He lost an eye and became a regular 'character' actor in many films.

La verdad es que soy usuario de Internet desde hace poco tiempo, pero siempre me han maravillado los temas bélicos y he comprado muchos libros sobre ellos y la verdad es que el Bismarck, a mi pensar, siempre ha sido y sigue siendo un buque formidable para su tiempo, como lo fue el Titanic en el suyo, salvando distancias, claro está. La verdad, es que siempre me ha quedado la duda de si este acorazado pudiera haber tenido otro destino final, si el alto mando de la flota alemana y sobre todo, Hitler, hubiera puesto más énfasis en dar mayor cobertura a estas unidades de la flota de alta mar, dado que ya sabían la desventaja con la que partían.

It was the Norwegian Military Attaché, colonel A.R. Roscher-Lund who informed captain Henry W. Denham, British Military Attaché and a personal friend of Roscher-Lund, that Bismarck and Prinz Eugen, supported by three destroyers, had been sighted in The Kattegat Strait. Roscher-Lund met with major Toernberg (private dinner) earlier that evening. Toernberg was head of the staff at the Swedish Intelligence Service.
In his book "Between Silk and Cyanide" (1989) Leo Marks, famous SOE codemaker, states that it was the two Norwegian radio operators Starheim and Tomstad (in the Kristiansand area) who sent the frist telegrams about Bismarck and the other German battleships moving into open sea. But that's wrong. Starheim was killed, and never insisted he sent any telegram. Tomstad, due to a personal tragedy related to being both a SOE agent and a member of the Nazi Party, said he and his boss Starheim sent the first telegram about Bismarck, they did not. The former director of the Resistance Museum in Oslo, Knut M. Haugland (age 85, also a Radio operator at the Gunnerside mission, who blew up the Heavy Water Plant at Rjukan/Vemork: "THe Heros of Telemark", and a radio operator at Thore Heyerdahl's Kon-Tiki expedition) tells me he has looked through all the telegrams sent from Starheim and Tomstad, and none is related to Bismarck.

What a pleasure to find so much technical data and information. Keep up the good work. Your site is a great source of information and gives a no nonsense view of a great and mighty ship that in my opinion, was a engineering marvel of the time.

Great history/beautiful ship/dedicated crew; but tragic for ship and crew; she should never put to sea with 1 cruiser for an escort; what Bismarck really needed was an aircraft carrier for support; to provide air cover; god rest the souls of the GERMAN and ENGLISH sailors involved that fatefull day. I enjoyed visting Bismarck's web site; will visit again soon
