 About the Book 

Winston Churchill called it the Beast. It was said to be unsinkable. More than thirty military operations failed to destroy it. Eliminating the Tirpitz, Hitlers mightiest warship, a 52,000-ton behemoth, became an Allied obsession.In The Hunt forMoreWinston Churchill called it the Beast. It was said to be unsinkable. More than thirty military operations failed to destroy it. Eliminating the Tirpitz, Hitlers mightiest warship, a 52,000-ton behemoth, became an Allied obsession.In The Hunt for Hitlers Warship, Patrick Bishop tells the epic story of the men who would not rest until the Tirpitz lay at the bottom of the sea. In November of 1944, with the threat to Russian supply lines increasing and Allied forces needing reinforcements in the Pacific, a raid as audacious as any Royal Air Force operation of the war was launched, under the command of one of Britains greatest but least-known war heroes, Wing Commander Willie Tait.Patrick Bishop draws on decades of experience as a foreign war correspondent to paint a vivid picture of this historic clash of the Royal Air Forces Davids versus Hitlers Goliath of naval engineering. Readers will not be able to put down this account of one of World War IIs most dramatic showdowns.
