    The Bismark was the greatest warship ever built, with guns so powerful and accurate it could destroy an enemy ship while safely staying outside the line of fire. But the Allies had to sink it...or risk losing the war. William Shirer, famed World War II correspondent and author of The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, captures every suspenseful moment of the perilous mission.

    Shivram says: "Audible KIDS Title - Narration for 10 year olds"
    "Audible KIDS Title - Narration for 10 year olds"
    Overall

    First, this is an Audible KIDS title.
    This is not apparent on the summary page describing this book.
    The narration is clearly directed at children.
    References to Adolf Hitler are almost always suffixed by - 'The Nazi Dictator of Germany'.
    When the story line mentions radar - the narrator follows it up with an explanation of how radar works and how a blip appears on the screen depicting the location of the enemy vessel.

    I bought this book because the author was William Shirer (Rise and Fall of the Third Reich).
    I wish Audible would clearly mark KIDS titles on the summary page.

    I have given it three stars because the storyline is still interesting and does provide a view with some level of detail if you can get past statements like, "The might Bismarck was found." or, "The fog grew thicker and British ships trailing the mighty Bismarck lost her in the fog not to see her again for many hours."
