Policy regarding topics for discussion
The policy of this website is to inform the visitors, nothing more, nothing less. This website is not a spokesman for a certain conviction. As far as it is to my (the webmaster's) knowledge I will inform of the different opinions related to a certain incident. It's not up to me to judge who's right and who's wrong. Since I was not on the scene of the incident I'm not qualified to do that. The fact that this website shows something that fits more to one opinion than another, does not mean that I prefer one opinion at the expense of another. The purpose of this website is to give as correct information as possible.
When I first heard about these ships
I was a little boy when I first heard about the Bismarck.
Several years later I read in Reader's Digest about the British X-craft attack on the Tirpitz.
Why I'm interested in the history of Bismarck and Tirpitz
I found these ships and their stories very fascinating (surprised?).

Criteria of success
I want to make a website that I would like to find myself if I want information about Bismarck and Tirpitz. I hope to have many visitors who'll find this website useful and informative. Whether you like a website like this or not, (the level of details, design etc) is more or less a matter of taste.
Help from the visitors
If you have some information or other things you think could be usefull to have on this website, you are very welcome to mail me. Maybe I can use it.
On this site you can see the German naval ensign and Nazi symbols used during WWII. It's only here for historical reasons. If you are sensitive about this and don't like to see that sort of things, I can only recommend that you go somewhere else. Don't say I didn't warn you.
