The Battle of the Denmark Strait is done justice in this well-written, small book, which reflects Bob Winklareth’s background and reputation as a military analyst….a very helpful, thorough contribution to the understanding of the classic Bismarck-Hood drama, worthy of addition to many libraries. (Bob Dulin, Retired USN Engineering Duty Officer, Co-Founder of the SNAME Marine Forensics Committee co-author of the classic three-volume World War II “Battleships” design and operational history, published by the Naval Institute Press.)

"…goes beyond the minute details of the battle and attempts to understand how the battle fit into the larger picture of global relations, extending years into the past to the resurrections of HMS Hood and the eventual sinking of the notorious Bismarck, and the uncertain future of both German and British warships...provides an excellent account of naval development, expansion, and decline from the era before World War I to after World War II, and of the fates of vessels Prinz Eugen and Rodney, and lasting interest in Bismarck and the battle, as underwater explorers uncover the remnants of the battle thousands of meters below the surface, showing how Battle of Denmark Strait affected world events and continues to affect historical memory. (Nautical Research Journal)

I liked how this author showed the results of many decisions made by everyone.
the pictures and drawings are very decent. Many i had not seen before.
Since this book has been done after Ballard found the Bismark and the Hood was located.
the author incorporated what Ballard found at the Bismark and what the others found at the Hood.
this has changed what everyone had thought had happened.
the followup to what happened to other ships involved was rather good and enlightening.
In all, a good read was to what happened in the Denmark Strait so long ago.
