The Battle of the Denmark Strait was a watershed moment in the history of naval warfare. On May 24, 1941—its first foray into North Atlantic waters—the German battleship Bismarck destroyed the HMS Hood and severely damaged the Prince of Wales.
Despite the wealth of documentary information and photographic evidence, the battle is still mired in controversy. In The Battle of the Denmark Strait, Robert J. Winklareth attempts to resolve the remaining issues through a painstaking reconstruction of the battle, detailed technical analysis, and new information—revealed for the first time—that sheds unprecedented light on the clash in which the best of both navies traded salvoes and over 1,500 Royal Navy sailors were lost.
