Bismark - SABATON
Old AF Sarge has an interesting post on both the German WWI battleship Bismark and the heavy metal song above of the same name.
It struck a chord because I had recently heard the SABATON lead singer Joakim Broder interviewed on the History Unplugged podcast. It was an enjoyable interview (even if you don't like heavy metal) about their WWI history themed new album (which includes the Bismark song above). Lots of good history nuggets on the podcast like the story of Canadian hero Francis Pegahmagabow, a First Nations Canadian who killed and captured more Germans than Alvin York but whom I had honestly never heard of.
