It's spring 1941, and Great Britain is the only country in Europe yet to be defeated by the Nazi army, but all of that could change soon. The Nazis have launched their juggernaut battleship, the Bismarck, to close off British supply lines and ultimately invade England. A counter-strike is ordered, and with an arsenal of ships at their command, Royal Intelligence officers Jonathan Shepard (Kenneth More) and Anne Davis (Dana Wynter) fight desperately to destroy the Bismarck. Director Lewis Gilbert delivers a heartfelt docu-drama about the courageous men and women of the British navy. Featuring actual war footage and a roller-coaster plot, the film is an unforgettable document of world history.

Classic film that keeps the suspense all the way
Don't be misled by the homepage illustration, as far as I know this has never been produced in colour. But don't let that put you off. This is one of my favourite WW2 movies because it tells a dramatic account of a true story with such dignity. No gung-ho heroes here. Just dedicated men and women. A must see.
