If You've Seen the Movie, There's No Reason to Read the Book
3. Juli 2018 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
As deeply as C.S. Forester describes multiple crew members on other books such as "The Ship," he glosses over virtually all of them here and gives us more of a serial news report than a thoughtfully developed story. It reads more like the screenplay to the move, "Sink the Bismarck" on which this book is based. I had expected to learn more about the sequence of events leading to the sinking and perhaps some preamble but if you've seen the movie, you've read the book. I've been a fan since I was a child (Hornblower series) and thought "coming back" to CSF after many years would be something special. In this case, it was not.
Matter of Fact
29. Juli 2018 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
A matter of fact retelling of the sinking of the battleship Bismarck during WW2. This is so plainly written from reports that nearly everyone is referred to by rank or position, with few names used. Movie fans will recognize this book as the basis of the film "Sink the Bismarck!" - it clearly have been used a preliminary draft of the script. I would have liked to have known a bit more of what the crew thought, or did all the builders men make it back, but that probably wasn't in the reports Forester read before writing this. It's on OK read, but being a factual retelling it certainly isn't Hornblower!
Very exciting account

The story of the voyage of the Bismark battleship. It is terse and quite exciting. The basis for the movie Sink the Bismark released in 1960. We now know the ship was not sunk but scuttled after taking a terrible beating. Thus the book is fiction about an actual event. I wonder what the actual combatants thought and said. Some of the contractors on the Prince of Wales and one of the three survivors of the HOOD have told their story. Foresters account is remarkably accurate. Of course Nooby is representative not actual. I recommend the book and the movie.
They sunk the Bismarck
2. Februar 2016 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
A riveting tale about the pursuit and sinking of the Bismarck. Forester has mastered the balance of events on various locales, the thoughts of men of different rank, the joy and terror of the hunt and the battle. I somehow managed to stretch this book into a 2-night read. It was hard to put down that first night. History classes should make this mandatory reading.
Master story-teller at his best.
8. August 2014 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Forester at his best. While you cannot develop a hugely strong relationship with any of the characters, this is a form of history--taking a world-wide major historical event and putting yourself in the shoes and strategic thinking of the participants--that breathes life into yesterday. You know the outcome, of course, before you start, but getting there is a complex series of actions that this master story-teller can do better than anyone else who ever penned adventure.
