Brought to video by National Geographic, this historic documentary details the final days of the German battleship and the reign of terror it launched on unsuspecting Allied ships during the second World War. Narrated by actor Richard Kiley, this is a high seas account of the June 1989 Bismarck discovery by Dr. Robert Ballard, whose famed discovery of the Titanic set the course of underwater exploration. The search for the Bismarck exposed the remains of the notorious warship, which lay at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean in its watery grave, put there by two Dorsetshire torpedoes and a barrage of shells from three other ships seeking revenge for damage done.
