Sink the Bismarck! by Lewis Gilbert( Visual )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bismarck was the fabled German battleship of World War II. This film traces the "life" of the Bismarck from its launching (courtesy of newsreel footage) through its many battles and narrow escapes, concluding with its far-from-inevitable sinking in the Spring of 1941. The story concentrates on a British intelligence captain, who has lost his family in the London blitz and thus has a personal reason for seeing the Bismarck destroyed. The captain's tireless efforts are abetted by the love and support of a female naval officer. The climactic sinking is deftly assembled from stock footage and newly shot scenes of expertly delineated scale models
