Bismarck wasn’t a “pocket battleship. Just the opposite, it was a full-sized battleship with increased armor protection. Germany had disgarded the restrictions by the time Bismarck was launched. German warship theory was heavier armor and smaller, more accurate guns. Had they been able to produce sufficient numbers of ships, this might have worked. Bismarck wasn’t sunk by the British which reall pissed them off to this day. She was pounded into a useless hulk, but still floated until her own crew scuttled her. The Brits got their revenge for Bismarck sinking the Hood by leaving over 1,000 German survivors to drown. Fair play and all that, eh, chaps? Naturally, they have a different version.
The Bismarck was of course sunk by the British Navy in the Atlantic ocean.
Bismarck wasnt a pocket battleship.
Correct, the “Pocket Battleships” were actually large cruisers and included the Deutschland, Admiral Scheer, and the well known Admiral Graf Spee
Not to mention that God-awful movie with Kenny More and the bathtub toy boats......which makes Lütjens into a raving Nazi when he was apolitical.
