Sir Ludovic Kennedy: Chasing the Bismarck

Sir Ludovic Kennedy served as an officer on the HMS Tartar, a battleship in the Royal Navy. The Tartar was one of the ships that chased and sank the Bismarck, the most powerful German battleship in WWII. Kennedy later wrote a book about this experience, titled The Chase and Sinking of the “Bismarck”.

After his service, Kennedy had a successful career in journalism and broadcasting, which earned him his knighthood.
