He and his team photographed the Bismarck sitting proudly upright three miles below the surface of the Atlantic off the coast of France. Ballard recreates the unforgettable story of the war's greatest sea chase, which resulted in the Royal Navy sinking the Bismarck, and gives a dramatic first-person account of his hi-tech hunt for the Bismarck that culminated in its thrilling rediscovery - 48 years after it was sent to the bottom.; 1.1 x 7.64 x 5.04 Inches; 240 pages
