The Bismarck is one of the most famous warships of the Second World War. The lead ship of her class, she was named after the 19th century German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck. Bismarck displaced more than 50,000 tonnes fully loaded and was then the largest warship yet commissioned.
The Bismarck only took part in one operation during her brief career. She and the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen left Germany on the morning of 19 May, 1941 to attempt to intercept and destroy convoys in transit between North America and Great Britain.
When Bismarck and Prinz Eugen attempted to break out into the Atlantic, the two ships were discovered by the Royal Navy and brought to battle in the Denmark Strait. During the short engagement, the British battle cruiser HMS Hood, flagship of the Home Fleet and pride of the Royal Navy, was sunk after several minutes of firing. In response, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill issued the order to "Sink the Bismarck", spurring a relentless pursuit by the Royal Navy.
Two days later, with Bismarck almost in reach of safer waters, Fleet Air Arm aircraft launched from the carrier HMS Ark Royal torpedoed the ship and jammed her rudder, allowing heavy British units to catch up with her. In the ensuing battle on the morning of 27 May, 1941, Bismarck was heavily attacked for nearly three hours before sinking.
