Bismarck and HMS Hood - Why Did They Sink?

HMS Hood was 860 feet long and weighed 48,000 tons.  The Bismarck was 823 feet long and weighed 50,000 tons.  Both ships sank within a few days of each other's demise - in May of 1941.  How did that happen?

This clip - from the History Channel's "Dogfights" - uses animation and expert interviews to examine and analyze the last days of the two great vessels.
