Before reading this book, I've never read any wargames books, nothing related to naval battles... but it's amazing how, literally, the complete british navy was behind the Bismarck and with determination to sink it under any circunstances...
Great book, a must read!
By the way, everything is based on historical data, it's not science fiction.
If you want to teach the subject of not only WWII but the concept of war, this book is a great starting point.
I found the level of detail in the story perfect the age group it was meant for; they could absorb and reflect on the hunt and the final battle without being overwhelmed.
The best part about the book was that it laid out a complex battle in understandable ways, but also captured the tension of ships trying to find each other in stormy weather and dense fog. When the ship finally sunk, the author doesn't spare the reader the magnitude of the loss of life -- a realistic portrayal of the costs of war. I highly recommend this book, and encourage parents to read along with the kids - you won't be disappointed.
