The Hunt for Hitler\'s Warship

The Hunt for Hitler's Warship

(2013)
A non fiction book by

 
Winston Churchill called it "the Beast." It was said to be unsinkable. More than thirty military operations failed to destroy it. Eliminating the "Tirpitz," Hitler's mightiest warship, a 52,000-ton behemoth, became an Allied obsession. In "The Hunt for Hitler's Warship," Patrick Bishop tells the epic story of the men who would not rest until the "Tirpitz" lay at the bottom of the sea. In November of 1944, with the threat to Russian supply lines increasing and Allied forces needing reinforcements in the Pacific, a raid as audacious as any Royal Air Force operation of the war was launched, under the command of one of Britain's greatest but least-known war heroes, Wing Commander Willie Tait. Patrick Bishop draws on decades of experience as a foreign war correspondent to paint a vivid picture of this historic clash of the Royal Air Force's Davids versus Hitler's Goliath of naval engineering. Readers will not be able to put down this account of one of World War II's most dramatic showdowns.
