The sinking of the HMS Hood on May 24, 1941 dealt a major blow to the British Royal Navy. Like Titanic years before, Hood had seemed invincible and much of the hopes of the Royal Navy rested with her as the nation entered the war with Germany. But in just seven minutes after an encounter with Bismarck and her consort Prinz Eugen , HMS Hood sunk to the bottom of the Atlantic, taking the lives of 1,418 men with her. Author Andrew Norman explores the events leading up to the disaster and the legacy it left in its wake.
