About this title


Recreates the sea battle that sank the German battleship Bismarck in World War II

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-8-- An excellent series entry that vividly recounts the history of the German battleship, Bismarck , from its construction to its sinking, and finally, its rediscovery 50 years later. As he did in The Wreck of the Isis (1990), Ballard intersperses his present-day account with an imaginative section that tells the story of the Bismarck' s demise from the eyewitness point of view of three young German soldiers. The easy-to-read text is extremely well illustrated. Important historical photographs are combined with bright, clear, full-color contemporary shots that show the research ship and Argo, the same underwater vehicle that was used in Exploring the Titanic ( 1988, both Scholastic). Well-executed drawings and diagrams clarify important concepts. One diagram, for example, uses apt comparisons to show how very deep the Bismarck lies beneath the ocean surface. An exciting title for report writers, browsers, and adventure lovers. --Don Reaber, Meadowdale High School, Lynnwood, WA
