The Battlecruiser- HMS Hood

24 May 1941 – the sinking of HMS Hood

The battlecruiser HMS Hood is one of the great warships of history. Unmatched for beauty and charisma, unequalled for size, for 20 years she was the glory ship of the Royal Navy, flying the flag across the world in the twilight years of the British Empire.

On 24 May 1941, she was sunk by the Bismarck during the Battle of Denmark Strait. Following an order from Prime Minister Winston Churchill to ‘Sink The Bismarck!’ (free article available here), the German battleship was pursued and destroyed by the Royal Navy only days later on 27 May.

This free article by Bruce Taylor – available to read now from Warfare Magazine – tells the tragic story of Hood’s final day.
