There is some doubt as to what sank the Bismarck. Some claim that a torpedo fired from the destroyer HMS Rodney delivered the fatal blow, while survivors of the sinking claim …that the Bismarck was scuttled,
Similarities and differences between the methods adopted by patel and Bismarck in political integration of India and unification of Germany?
Compare the policies used by Bismarck and sardar patel in the unifications of Germany and integration of states of India?
The answer to this question will not be a straight one. As one can see One of the fundamental differances between the unification of Germany by Bismark and the simil…ar feat achieved by Sadar Patel in unifying the princely states of India was that the time at which these were achieved. In the pre-colonial era when Bismark tried to unify Germany his premise was that it was done to make Germany a stronger nation. He wanted to make Germany a great power to rekon with. The background of these smaller states was a much similar and so were their objectives. However, in case of India when Sadar Patel tried to unfiy India his premise was that for the just-born state that was India survival was of utmost importance and the presence of such numerous princely states a threat to its very existance. The princely states spread across the length and breath of the nation were as unique and diverse as they could be, a challenge of enormous magnitude to overcome. And yet, Sadar Patel was able to peacefully (but in a couple of cases) unify the state of India under one rule while it took three bloody wars for Bismark to achieve the same with Germany. It would be harsh on the two men mentioned above to do a comparison given the fact that both did it in completely different eras and equally different circumstances and with dimetrically different objectives.

It's many things. a famous German political family. Notably, the first chancellor of unified Germany, Otto von Bismarck, nicknamed the "Iron Chancellor". Some of …his descendants are still involved in German politics. a German battleship from World War II, named after Otto von Bismarck. It was one of the largest battleships ever built, but was hunted down and sunk by the British Navy. in parts of the US and Canada, it's a kind of jelly donut an alcoholic drink made from a mix of dark beer and champagne, which Otto reportedly loved. the name of several cities, notably the capital of the US state of North Dakota.

Since 1878 there had been a law in Germany banning all socialist campaigning and organized activity by socialists; and it had been renewed at periodic intervals. It came… up for renewal again in 1890. This law was in practice much more than a ban: socialists were persecuted ... Young Kaiser William II had, at that time, fantasies about appealing directly to 'ordinary people', to industrial workers. He wanted to become a 'People's Kaiser' and opposed the renewal of the anti-socialist law. In an attempt to force the Kaiser's hand, Bismarck resigned - and was astonished when the Kaiser accepted.
It's famous because British writer Cecil S. Forester wrote a book about it in 1959, and the British made a film about it called "Sink the Bismarck" in 1960. Otherwise, it sank… itself on it's maiden voyage rather than letting the British navy take credit for sinking it. German sailors (there were hundreds of survivors) had been stating for years that THEY scuttled the Bismarck, and the Royal Navy didn't sink it. Dr. Ballard dove on the vessel in the 1980's and proved that the German's were correct! They sunk their own ship!
Scuttled by it's crew.
To some germans, bismarckwa the greatestand noblest of germany's statesmen. They say he almost singlehandedly unified the nation and rised it to greatness. To others he was no…thing but a devious politician who abused his powers and led germany intoa dictatorship.
It scuttled itself on it's maiden voyage rather than letting the British navy take credit for sinking it. As verified by Dr. Ballard's expedition.
Bismarck united Germany, likewise Patel united various small independent kingdoms after the independence of India. So he is called Bismarck of India.
