Return To The Bismarck

The Bismarck was a steel colossus - the world's biggest, fastest and strongest battleship, designed to kill. Her mission was to destroy the utterly needed lifelines of Great Britain, the convoys that were bringing food and supplies from Canada to a starving and devastated country.

But the mission failed, as the Bismarck was sunk on her maiden voyage by the British Fleet, after they chased her in a dramatic hunt from the Denmark Strait down to the waters of the Biscaya. Sixty years later, an expedition, to find the wreck of the Bismarck on the bottom of the ocean begins.

On board, Australian business man and expedition leader Mike McDowell has gathered experienced submarine professionals, adventure tourists and Bismarck veterans for a challenging journey into the past.
