About the book:

The Bismarck and the Tirpitz were the German Navy's most formidable, and most famous, warships of World War II. Each was superbly equipped and carried the highly effective armament of eight 15in guns. Not only did they pose a very real danger to the ships of the Royal Navy, but they were also a serious threat to Britain's transatlantic trade. This reference book traces the development of the class from inception to destruction and provides detailed technical specifications for the ships with notes on design and layout. The 'ships' careers and service histories are also described. With over 180 contemporary photographs of the ships and the sailors who served on board as well as plans, maps and camouflage drawings, this lavishly illustrated book is a complete and indispensable guide to two extraordinary warships.
