The German battleship Tirpitz was the less-famous sister ship to the Bismarck. Tirpitz spent much of the war playing a dangerous game of cat and mouse in Norwegian fjords, in a position where she could be used to threaten Allied convoys going to Russia. She was known as the "Lonely Queen of the North". Tirpitzs luck ran out on November 12, 1944. While anchored in Tromso,Norways Sande Sound she was struck by British 13,200-pound "Tallboy" bombs, which set of a magazine explosion.
