Why are the last days of the German battleship Bismarck and the British battle cruiser HMS Hood connected?

The Bismarck was one of the most feared battleships constructed by Nazi Germany. The HMS Hood was a very powerful ship that was the pride of the British navy. During World War II, the two titans faced each other on May the 24th 1941. Hood opened fire on Bismarck. Two minutes later, Bismarck responded to Hood’s gunfire, and The Battle of Denmark Strait began. At 06.00, a gigantic explosion ripped the Hood into two. In less than ten minutes of battle, Hood was lost.  Following this battle, the Bismarck was pursued for more than two days by ships and aircraft of the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force. On May 27th, the Bismarck was attacked, and in two hours, the German battleship was completely destroyed.
