On May 26, 1941, the German battleship Bismarck was sunk by torpedo bombers from the HMS Ark Royal and HMS Victorious while attempting to escape to Brest after the Battle of the Denmark Strait, becoming the first battleship in history to be sunk by carrier-based aircraft at sea.
What if that didn't happen? Suppose the first wave of aircraft sent against Bismarck gets lost and doesn't deliver the attacks that crippled her and left her open to the second wave. Could she have made it to Brest? How would that affect the war?

If Bismarck was not sunk in the Mid-Atlantic, it would have been sunk somewhere else. Britain still possessed the greatest navy in the world, especially as the Blitz was already starting to wind down. Whether aircraft or ship, the Bismarck, the greatest perceived threat to the Brits, was not going to survive
futurist: Good luck to you, MN!

MinnesotaNationalist: well, that was the most underwhelming jury duty ever. Came in one day, was told to go home, and now I'm told that I'm not needed anymore for this session.

ieph: I've been actually thinking of just spending my time here, gradually decreasing my presence in AH.com. But in the meantime, I'm spending my time reviving one of my old WIPs sadly lost to the sands of time (I guess)

jennysnooper87: If that's the case, would it be okay if I moved the TL from AH.com to this site?
