The HMS Hood Battlecruiser - WWII Series
HMS Hood was the last battlecruiser built for the Royal Navy. Commissioned in 
1920, she was named after the 18th-century Admiral Samuel Hood. One of four 
Admiral-class battlecruisers ordered in mid-1916, Hood had design limitations, 
though her design was revised after the Battle of Jutland and improved while she 
was under construction. For this reason she was the only ship of her class to be 
completed. As one of the largest and most powerful warships in the world, her 
prestige was reflected in her nickname ‘The Mighty Hood’.
Hood was involved in several showing the flag exercises between her commissioning 
in 1920 and the outbreak of war in 1939, including training exercises in the 
Mediterranean Sea and a circumnavigation of the globe with the Special Service 
Squadron in 1923 and 1924. She was attached to the Mediterranean Fleet following 
the outbreak of the Second Italo-Abyssinian War.
When the Spanish Civil War broke out, Hood was officially assigned to the 
Mediterranean Fleet until she had to return to Britain in 1939 for an overhaul. 
By this time, advances in naval gunnery had reduced Hood's usefulness. She was 
scheduled to undergo a major rebuild in 1941 to correct these issues, but the 
outbreak of World War II in September 1939 forced the ship into service without 
the upgrades.
When war with Germany was declared, Hood was operating in the area around 
Iceland, and she spent the next several months hunting between Iceland and the 
Norwegian Sea for German commerce raiders and blockade runners. After a brief 
overhaul of her propulsion system, she sailed as the flagship of Force H, and 
participated in the destruction of the French Fleet at Mers-el-Kebir. Relieved as 
flagship of Force H, Hood was dispatched to Scapa Flow, and operated in the area 
as a convoy escort and later as a defence against a potential German invasion 
In May 1941, she and the battleship Prince of Wales were ordered to intercept the 
German battleship Bismarck and the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen, which were en route 
to the Atlantic where they were to attack convoys. On 24 May 1941, early in the 
Battle of the Denmark Strait, Hood was struck by several German shells, exploded 
and sank. Due to her perceived invincibility, the loss affected British morale.
The Royal Navy conducted two inquiries into the reasons for the ship's quick 
demise. The first, held soon after the ship's loss, concluded that Hood's aft 
magazine had exploded after one of Bismarck's shells penetrated the ship's 
armour. A second inquiry was held after complaints that the first board had 
failed to consider alternative explanations, such as an explosion of the ship's 
torpedoes. It was more thorough than the first board and concurred with the first 
board's conclusion.
Despite the official explanation, some historians continued to believe that the 
torpedoes caused the ship's loss, while others proposed an accidental explosion 
inside one of the ship's gun turrets that reached down into the magazine. Other 
historians have concentrated on the cause of the magazine explosion. The 
discovery of the ship's wreck in 2001 confirmed the conclusion of both boards, 
although the exact reason the magazines detonated is likely to remain unknown 
since that area of the ship was destroyed in the explosion.
