1. Bismarck fails to hit Hood and hole's POW's bridge. KM command gives Hood's death to Bismarck out of pride. (And same for RN, except even more so. -Ed.) Pride of KM sinks pride of RN. Great copy.
2. Eugen fails to hit POW and hole's Hood's boat deck. KM command gives POW's bridge hole to Eugen.
3. POW fails to hit anything. Admiralty gives Bismarck's tank hole to POW out of embarrassment and out of fear for Leach's life. Rank and file RN is angry. Tovey is under pressure to hang Leach from Churchill who feels that POW should have rammed Bismarck and gone down fighting as well. "If the cream of the RN went down, he should have followed her." Based on this hatred, Leach is a pariah and volunteers for the British version of Ten-Go which was the sending of POW and Repulse to Singapore. All reports say that he survived the bombing and deliberately went down with POW, only to have his body float to the surface where it was found.
All in all an interesting 1941."
