A friend of mine sent me a link to a music video about Bismarck. The band is named Sabaton, which is a Swedish heavy metal band, a VERY heavy metal band. I was not aware of them or their style of music when I viewed the video. It was quite a shock in more than one way. It was shocking that someone would make a heavy metal song about the Bismarck and a bigger shock to me was that I really liked it. The video is very well done and the song is good as well. It's not really my kind of music at all. I was reading some of the reviews about the song, one read "there is enough metal in this song to build the Bismarck 5 times." They are not wrong.

From the way they are dresses and the subject they are singing about I wondered if this was a pro-Nazi type of group. Such things do exist. As it turns out ALL of their songs are about history, that's right, a heavy metal HISTORY band. What a concept. I don't know who came up with this idea, but it's brilliant. If this gets young people to take any interest in history, I support it. Well done you guys.

Do wish I had found your site before now. In Feb. 2007 a company called Hachette done a part work build the Bismarck, never done model building before so said to myself "Lets have a go" what an experience that has been, the series is now complete after 140 issues and I am now in the finishing the detailed parts a few weeks to go to the launch, at 75 I feel real proud of myself, so attached is a photo of her so far. Thank you for your site, really great reading and pictures. I spent my boy hood and life for 18 years in the Royal Marines Band Service with no regrets what so ever, a great life in a wonderful service joined 1949 at 14 and left 1967.
