The memoirs of a Second World War bomber pilot and the sinking of the Bismarck warship in May 1941.

Along with twelve other brave pilots, John Moffat took down the largest warship of its time. A warship that had destroyed the famed HMS Hood within minutes, and was able to withstand anything the British military threw at it. These men, in their Swordfish, managed to avoid the fearful anti-aircraft fire and launch their torpedoes. One of them hit, holing the German warship.

This is John Moffat's story, of how as a young man he experienced first-hand the titanic struggle for naval supremacy, the cramped cabins and meagre rations of WWII, the mind-numbing patrols over hundreds of miles of ocean and the adrenalin and fear of being in a fragile aircraft sought out by gunfire. As the only surviving member of the mission, John Moffat tells of everything that led him to be able to say, "I sank the Bismarck."
