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

In the 19th century, the major European powers had gone to great lengths to maintain a balance of power throughout Europe, resulting by 1900 in a complex network of political and military alliances throughout the continent. Beginning in 1815, the Holy Alliance between Prussia, Russia, and Austria formalized what had been a strictly familial support network. The House of Habsburg, the House of Hohenzollern, and the House of Romanov had long intermarried, resulting in an incredibly tangled web of relationships, a number of which led back to Queen Victoria of England. These three families influenced the political landscape of Europe, and their personal struggles, tragedies and decisions within these relationships affected Europe to a greater degree than they ever imagined. This miniseries focuses on the leading personalities of these three privileged families, and how they influenced the events that led to WWI
