Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello Antonio, Your latest attempt to tramline Bill Jurens with heavily loaded/slanted questions started right after he posted a lengthy statement of his position ending with: I hope that this rather lengthy diatribe will adequately summarize my position. Regarding the thesis of Mssrs Bonomi and Vir...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello Alberto, I'm personally very hurt you left "Attack Poodle" out of your list. But as I posted before. An arrogant attack dog who can't take the odd kick in the teeth should give up the role, not whimper like a pathetic whipped cur. If there is any reporting to the webmaster to be done it should...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello Alberto, To be accepted, they just need to be more solid than the PoW salvo plot because this one alone fixes Bismarck course to 220° (or less) from 5:56:10 till 6:00:30, during the time all hits were received. As I posted, some while ago, in another thread: I do not believe anyone has accurat...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello Antonio, The boundary between your imagination and reality seems to be blurring even further: No more statements about Bismarck surely being under Hood fire I have never said such a thing. What you are constructively misremembering is probably: Even McMullen did not know which salvoes actually...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello Antonio, You have created yet another speculative drawing without waiting for the answer to your own obvious question, as if making a drawing made the underlying assumption true. May I ask you from where you got them ? Then before Thorsten responds: I am providing the top view of what he showe...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello Alberto, You bought a pizza because Antonio successfully "trolled me"? And then bragged about it :shock: you need to pay me the pizza as agreed now, ... as I was anticipating you yesterday night that the " big fish " was going surely to " eat the hook " entirely. You two have been trolling eve...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello Thorsten, my conclusion from description of damage I made also a visualisation These diagrams are interesting, and thank you for presenting them, but without provenance to confirm the projectile tracks, they are as invalid as evidence, just like Antonio's visualisation. Please confirm whether ...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello All, One of the annoying features is that neither of my copies of Grenfell has this map though I do not dispute its origin for a second. Still a minor setback. :cool: However the Baron speaks about "material" (possibly a "paglietto turafalle", in Italian, I don't have a translation in English ...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello A & A, Here is some primary-level source material from 1941, no need to wait until 2021: The explosion damaged bulkheads between Sections XX and XXI and Section XXI and XXII, and accordingly the three forward sections were flooded to a depth of 1 metre above the battery deck, the fore part of ...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello All, Since this thread is about the specifics of hits and their possible use to establish the relative positions of vessels which made them it is the ideal place to talk about maps. Hello Antonio, I will not comment here in on the old 1943 map by F.O. Busch used by Brennecke, No I wouldn't if ...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello All, Now that Jochen Brennecke's book is being extensively quoted we should consider his map from the 2003 edition. His foreword to this 6th edition is dated 1997 https://i.imgur.com/98cuVYW.jpg He too shows Bismarck making a turn away before 06:00 , although not as far as 270T. Brennecke used...

Re: hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello Alberto, Esteemed website owner Jose Rico showed us where the photos are: In the following link we can see that the entry and exit holes, port and starboard, are both over the false white waves: Unlike you I would blindly trust a statement from Bill Jurens, but mot a single word from Antonio a...

Re: hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello Antonio, Since this is Bill Jurens' description I expect we shall have to wait until his book comes out. :D BTW Why anybody would waste their money on promised offerings from any other authors, especially if they pollute factual information with flakey Conspiracy Theories, I can't imagine. Clo...

Re: hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello Antonio and Alberto, In cartoons when the comedy villains (think Dick Dastardly and Mutley) look down and see the rapidly expanding shadow of the falling Grand Piano around their feet, they have a last cigarette, not a pizza. :lol: If the documentary evidence is good enough for Bill Jurens, an...

Re: hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello All, but in my personal opinion it is a bit premature to try to determine the exact direction of the incoming shell from 2 photos showing the holes in the wreck. Hardly a surprise. :lol: Documentary evidence; Close examinations of the ship's plans coupled with a reading of written and oral des...
