Re: Schopp, Palatinate, Germany

Maybe you should contact the museum in Pirmasens and see if they can help you any further:

I am happy to announce a new project in our HMA: DUIKBOOT. Two Belgians, Frans Beckers and Walter Cloots, have collected and evaluated documents and information about german uboats in World War 2 for over 35 years. From this they created a unique database that is now presented in the "Historische Ma...

Re: Where is this picture from?

As we see Admiral Hipper in the wake of Tirpitz (where the photo is taken from) and most likely a pocket battleship further aft it could show the german battlegroup leaving Altafjord on their sortie against convoy PQ 17.

Re: 2 questions regarding Bismarck

I think he was aware of the fact that the Royal Navy would bring almost everything to sea they had to hunt his ship down. On the other hand he was aware of the fact that british cruisers now had radar and that this was possibly the last possibility to make a breakthrough throug denmark strait or sou...

Re: Destroyers vs. battleships - Comprehensive list from WW2

In an analysis by the German supreme naval command (SKL - Seekriegsleitung) the way Langsdorff fought the second part of the battle (the battle against the Light Cruisers) was criticized in the way that the own choice of courses was not the optimum. It was said that as a support for the own artiller...

Re: Destroyers vs. battleships - Comprehensive list from WW2

So if the main battery finds the correct fire solution and straddles the target, could her data (range, bearing etc.) be transfered directly from the main battery fire control computer to the secondary battery fire control computer? So that they achieve a straddle with these data as well?

Re: Destroyers vs. battleships - Comprehensive list from WW2

...To sink HMS Glorious the ‘twins’ expended 387 x 11” shells registering only 5 hits... Where is this number from? Reading John Winton, "Carrier Glorious ", one gets the impression that the carrier was hit more often. Form a german source (I guess by Siegfried Breyer) I remember something of eleve...

Re: Naval History Books

Hello Jellicoe! Keep in mind that this book of Breyer contains several "mistakes". Most of them are not real mistakes, I guess. I think that better information were simply not available to Breyer at the date the book was printed first. Later he corrected most of them with his second issue "battleshi...
