OK for battleship fans with quite a few errors March 25 2005
By L. S. Philip - Published on Amazon.com
Errors include : picture of Repulse (or Renown) used for Hood. Picture of Prinz Eugen used for Bismarck. Granted similar silhouettes in both cases but still glaring. Bismarck said to have been torpedoed by Rodney. In fact, only a remote probable and most historians actually discounted it. Use of coincidence rangefinders touched on but omitted to say the Germans used stereoscopic rangefinders. Remarked usually took a hundred shells to score one hit but the figure is closer to 6 salvoes (24 shells) to produce hit/hits on average.

That said, the programme does provide rare footage and illustrations of the 2 vessels that we battleship fans have known and loved so intimately. And the human angle used, i.e interviews of survivors of Hood and Bismarck and the reunion of veterans from both sides was, fascinating, sobering and moving.
