This week the book it Sink the Bismarck! By C.S. Forester.  It is, of course, the story of battleship Bismarck and the Royal Navy’s attempt to sink her.  Forester does a good job of packing a story full of suspense and tension into 118 pages.

“The decision I have to take – the next words I say – can change the history of the world, can decide the fate of nations, can settle the destiny of Germany and of National Socialism and of our Fuhrer.  Ten thousand – twenty thousand – fifty thousand lives can be cut short by my next order.”

Talk about dramatic.  Forester knows how to tell a good story.
