I was getting bored even when they were actually sinking the Bismark. Sorry for the spoiler :-) . I am a huge fan of even the stuff that most would consider to be "historic monotony". This writer needs to work on his presentation. Otherwise fine.

The narrator should do something else! He reads haltingly, akin to a 1st or 2nd grader! He detracts from the story.

Excellent literal documentary of the British vessels and crews involved in the famous hunt and destruction of one of the greatest battlecruiser of WWII. Superb personal accounts highlight the struggle, the anguish and fortitude of the men of the Royal Navy that were directly connected with the tragic loss of the ill-fated Hood and on to the eventual search, hunt and battles with the Bismarck that ended with loss of many men in the cruel North Atlantic Ocean. Well written, and well narrated, this is a book that looks from the opposite side of the often written Bismarck story.

What made the experience of listening to Killing the Bismarck the most enjoyable?
Good historical detail mixed with first hand accounts.
Any additional comments?
Overall very good, however it was a bit of a shame that a book primarily about the Royal Navy was read by an American who seemed thoroughly unfamiliar with British naval terms and history. Listening to common words mispronounced in an American way (like lieutenant mispronounced loootenernt, and buoy as boooey(?!)) will be quite jarring to most people who listen to this book, the majority of which I assume will be from outside the US.Other than that no complaints. Good show.
