The Bismark

The Bismarks Last BattleOne of the rutters on the Bismark was jammed, so it was just steering in circles. It was stuck like that all night long. After daybreak on May 27, King George led the attack on the Bismark. Rodney followed off her port. Both Rodney and King George opened fire on the Bismark, and Bismark returned fire. Two more British ships got in on the battle and all four fired over 2,800 shells on the Bismark. Dorsetshire fired two torpedos at Bismark one of which hit it in the stern. And the Bismark sank.

The Bismark was the biggest naval ship of World War II. The Bismark was built by Blohm & Voss Hamburg. It was launched Feb. 14, 1939 and commissioned Aug. 24, 1940. It has it's own class of battleship name after it called the Bismark, of course. The Bismark weighed 41,700 tons. It was 793 ft. long and was 118 wide. It had a top speed of 30.1 knots (34.53 mph). The Bismark was on the seas for only two years before it was sunk on May 27, 1941 by the British ships King George V and the Rodney.

The Bismark has one sister ship, the Tirpitz. It was launched on April 1, 1939 and commissioned Feb. 25, 1941.
