Sink the Bismarck

   (3 reviews)

This is the story of the sortie and sinking of the German Battleship Bismarck in 1941, as seen from the eyes of a British officer on board HMS Suffolk.

Note: This story and many of the characters in it are fictional, but I have tried to be as true to the historical events as possible.

Many readers know of Mark Arbour's legendary serial stories about Granger and his exploits at sea in the late 18th and into the 19th Centuries as well as his other multi-volume CAP history set in the 20th and 21st Centuries.  However, this gem is a stand alone story and it is extremely well done and is one of my favorites.  As noted in the intro Mark provided, it is a first hand account of the sinking of the Bismarck.  Without revealing any more than that, I can say it captures the drama and intensity of a wartime naval encounter.  ENJOY!

The historical nature of this story, made it pop for me. It flowed well, and seamlessly. Painted a vivid picture, and I almost felt like I was onboard the ship.

I have followed several of Mark Arbour's longer story lines in the last few years from my isolation in the Brazilian 'outback'. In all my reading on Gay Authors, I have not encountered another author who has exceeded or even equaled Mark's ability. His work has been consistantly creative and his ability to tie his characterizarions into real historical events gives his writing an immediacy that is truly outstanding. I would not hesitate to recommend any of his works to a critical readership, knowing that they will be well satisfied with his ability to tell a tale.
