The Bismarck was the most powerful battleship of the German navy ("Kriegsmarine") during WW2.
His sistership, the Tirpitz , is the one we know well by playing the map Operation Seawolf - Steam piping in H&D2.
But there, it's only a game...

However, the biggest battleship ever built remain the Japanese Yamato , (displacement:72800 tons, main armament:9x460mm guns in 3 turrets), who also will have a tragic end in August 1945...

In France, sailors have this traditional word : "Prière pour un bateau qui meurt" (Prayer for a dying ship)...

A War machine, of what kind or shape ever,
is designed in its perfection without a soul, only for the purpose to bring nothing else than destruction, harm and death.

For me, finally it only matters what happens with the destiniy of human beings who are connected or faced with it in history with the fate of this iron madness...

Unknown dead soldiers fallen for the sick ideas of others...
An incredible waste of life and destinies... Imagine what these people could have done for the good of this world, if they would have got the chance to live longer...

We never should forget this... life is unique and each of us only has one small piece of it...
Life is a single chance...



Always be yourself unless you can be a unicorn, then always be a unicorn.
