As Bismarck leaves Grimstadfjord in Norway, she is escorted by Messerschmitt Bf-110's of II/ZG 76 based at nearby Herdla. The time is 19.45 hours on 21 May 1941 and the scene is one of tranquility before the battle commences. During the next seven days the Bismarck will take on the combined might of British air and naval forces, sinking HMS Hood and finally coming to rest in the waters of the North Atlantic with the loss of almost 2000 lives and only 115 survivors.
