75 years ago, the 2 biggest european battleships sunk during Operation "Rheinübung" in the Atlantic Ocean. The german press spent a few articles on it(which you won't understand): http://www.faz.net/aktuell/politik/schlachtschiff-bismarck-bis-zur-letzten-granate-14249297.html http://www.welt.de/geschichte/zweiter-weltkrieg/article155735462/Am-Ende-versenkte-sich-die-Bismarck-selbst.html Was it a topic in Great Britain? In the articles, Admiral Lütjens is heavily critized for scuttling Bismarck too late, he should have done it before the last fight. To safe the life of the crew. And. off course he was again blamed for the loss of the ship. I am naive for sure, but a battleship did not have rescue boats, scuttling her in the cold Atlantic with no german ship with Bismarck doesn't seem a clever idea to me. Regardless that the ship was still able to fight and that's what it was build for. Any different opinions?
