The End of Glory: War & Peace in HMS Hood, 1916-1941

There have been many fine books, movies, and television shows about the legendary HMS Hood. No work has ever offered the level of in-depth research combined with such a fine narrative as in THE END OF GLORY. The great battlecruiser HMS Hood was the ship that flew the flag across the world in the 1930s during the twilight years of the British Empire. In 1941 she was destroyed in seconds by the battleship Bismarck, a catastrophe that dumbfounded the British public. For the officers and crew who manned her for twenty years, she was a home. This new book, through official documents as well as the personal accounts and memories of more than 150 crewmen, offers a vivid image of the difficult life on a warship in peacetime and in war.
