Bismarck

A direct hit blasts the 5,000-ton German battleship Bismarck shortly before it sank in the Atlantic 400 miles West of Brest, France, following a 1,750 mile chase from Bergen, Norway, by air and sea units of the British Navy. This picture, which has just become available, was taken by Yeoman 1/c Fritz Dungert aboard the former German Cruiser Prinz Eugen which is now at Philadelphia prepared to sail to the South Pacific where it will be one of the targets in the atomic bomb tests next May. Dungert says the picture was taken May 27, 1941, the day the Bismarck went down. (AP Photo)
