Magazine explosion. Either from fire started on boat deck by Prince Eugen or Bismarck 15” penetration.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

This is interesting.

And the level of detail in this is incredible. Also shows how confusing reports can be. If you are interested in naval battles this is truly wonderful.
