Opis produktu:

The Hunt for Hitler's Warship Churchill called it "the Beast." It was said to be unsinkable. More than 30 military operations failed to destroy it. Eliminating the "Tirpitz," Hitler's mightiest warship, a 52,000-ton behemoth, became an Allied obsession. Full description

The vastness of the operation,weather conditions and the battle stress by all involved make one wonder who were these men.The warship as designed and described was much bigger and more complex than I had imagined.
The idea that a group of navy and air force battle squadrons spread over miles of ocean in freezing difficult conditions carried out this hunt over not hours or days but months into years was in itself beyond any normal duty..
The thinking of men struggling through training that at times killed them and knowing that even if they actually made it to the mission what ever it was the chances of survival were slim was described in such a way you could feel the strain and desperation.



About the Author

Patrick Bishop has emerged in the last decade as one of Britain’s best-regarded military historians with his books Fighter Boys and Bomber Boys, which cast a new light on the men who flew in the Battle of Britain and the Strategic Air Campaign.

He has also led the field in contemporary accounts of the experiences of British troops fighting in southern Afghanistan. His 3 Para told the story of the initial break-in battle in Helmand in 2006 and won the British Army Military Book of the Year Award. He joined the Paras on their return to southern Afghanistan in 2008 and produced a sequel, Ground Truth.

His writing is underpinned by first-hand knowledge of warfare gained during a long career as a foreign correspondent. He has followed British soldiers on almost all their deployments of the last thirty years from the Falklands to Afghanistan.
