    1. While the book is fairly short 160 pages plus appendixes it is very technical and can get very hard going at times.The author clearly used a vast array of sources to get as clear a picture of the event as possible Sometimes it appears he tries to cram as much detail as possible and a reader can easily loose track but overall the book is a great read into a very significant Naval Battle of World History.


    2. As someone interested in the history of the Royal Navy I found this book by John Winton compelling reading He must have researched the field extensively he cites over 50 published sources in the bibliography and he evidently studied about 11 boxes of Admiralty records in the Public Records Office as well as acknowledgeing access to many private letters and unpublished memoirs The details in the book give an immediacy to the minute by minute account of signals, personal conversations, manouvres, [...]


    3. I had a paperback book from Magazine back in the late 50 s that was about the sinking of the Scharnhorst This book I forgot the exact title and none of the covers rings a bell Easy to confuse with the story of the Bismarck Date read is a guess.


    4. You only get remembered in big navy stories if your a Captain or the author s steward No one else ever get named SPITS
