    I believe Operation Downfall was the proposed plan for the invasion of mainland Japan.

    Which weapon did Germany use for the first time in September 1944, the descendants of which are still in service today?

    The HMS Hood, if that's what you're referring to did not sink the Bismarck and it took several British ships to sink it. The first nail in the coffin was a torpedo from an airplane that hit the rudder of the Bismarck and made it impossible to steer.

    Right. She was finished off by two battleships, HMS King George V and HMS Rodney, and finally torpedoed by cruiser HMS Dorsetshire

    Yeah, you're correct. After I posted, I remembered that it was the other way 'round....the Bismarck sunk the Hood

    Graf Spree. They named Spree candy after this vessel. The ship lasted approx 7 years after being launched, which is 5 more years than Montee Ball will last in the NFL.
