Now this is something very dear to my heart.
I am an ardent supporter of the RN and its history.It is my main historical love.
In short.I think the answer is that the Bismarck was depicted as an iconic German war machine that was without a doubt the master of the seas.
She was a loan “wolf” that was the scourge of the seas.
KG 5 was part of a flotilla that sank Bismarck (not decrying her actions).
She was a new ship that as we know still had civilian workers on board as she was on trials and pressed into active service to tackle the Bismarck along with Ark Royal Victorious plus eight other RN ships that combined actions sank her.
HMS Dorsetshire put the final torpedoes into Bismarck so history tells us.
I could go on....Bismarck and her sister Tirpitz were classics in their own right.
I think we build more of Bismarck because of their iconic history.
I do stand corrected.

Ps.Sink the Bismarck is brilliant and a classic along with so many other classic Black and White Films.
