Outline of Series 02, Episode 02
In violation of the Treat of Versailles Hitler embarked on a programme to build massive battleships but was only able to produce two; Bismarck and Tirpitz. To the frustration of his naval commanders Hitler found the ships far more valuable as propaganda weapons than as warships. But they were obsolete almost as soon the they were launched and both succumbed to the emerging dominance of air power.
