Storyline

The Royal Navy's battle with Bismarck is a pivot point in the Second World War. If Bismarck succeeded in attacking the British convoy system, then Britain would be forced to surrender and there would have been no bridgehead for an Anglo American liberation of Europe. In losing Bismarck the Germans lost their opportunity to defeat Britain and turn the tide of war. Naval historian Andrew Lambert has studied this famous sea battle and sheds new light on the reasons for Bismarck's fate. He believes the sinking follows a catalogue of errors on both sides but ultimately he finds fault with the core German war strategy. Written by Darlow Smithson Productions
