In May 1941, the German battleship Bismarck headed out into the North Atlantic to raid allied shipping. She was accompanied by the Prinz Eugen and her pursuit was an epic of naval warfare. Found and shadowed by British cruisers, she was engaged by the Hood and the Prince of Wales. Within minutes, she had sunk the former, the pride of the Royal Navy, and damaged the latter. The next few days were agonising for both sides.
