Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, regarding the north maps reference, it is my assumption that they were using the geographical north they had on their maps. But if the difference among the 3 type of north and probably on the type of maps used has been a crucial factor on the night of the 23rd for the Suffolk, it i...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Regarding maps and north directions, if existing POW and PG tracks should be synchronized: Is it actually known to which north the original battlemaps are referenced? For navigation and localization, there are three north references: 1) Magnetic North - I doubt that this will be a reference to any o...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

I would support having a moderated forum. It is a pity, but this seems to be needed to maintain a minimum level of maturity and seriousness. Constantly demonstrating the emotional maturity of a toddler and the intellectual / logical capability of a preschooler is not beneficial for a meaningful disc...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Instead I will keep on asking him what does he have to try ( surely unsuccesfully as more than obvious ) to challenge Paul Schmalenbach 1978 reconstruction of the Bismarck track based on the photos, the PG map and the PG film analysis : This challenge is a quite simple exercise: This map (as any ot...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

For the time being, despite all the "philosophic" considerations about methodology, NOBODY has been able to propose a better (=more precise and respectful of the evidences) battle reconstruction that Antonio's one: " in essence, in one sentence: The theory can not be " COUNTERED and this is a FACT ...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Mathematics, geometry and trigonometry are scientific laws and are more than enough independent proof. .......... As simple as that, ... and always with the due tolerances. Bye Antonio Mathematics, and its sub-disciplines geometry and trigonometry are scientific tools, not laws. By themselves, they...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

The links you provide just show a track maps with times on it. I'm sorry I still don't see the independent proof of your correlation of film/photos with the track maps. Remember, your correlation of photos/film with the track maps is a reconstruction/theory - so if you want to state that it is "corr...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Back on this thread here a summary map correctly re-positioning the PG film as for the last timing evaluations between 06:03 and 50 seconds and 06:05 and 43 seconds. As we agreed there are of course +/- 5 seconds tolerances. Dejavu: This misunderstanding is your big problem. You did not "correctly ...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Follow Antonio reasoning, working with him, (http://www.kbismarck.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=8335&p=81187#p81065) and I'm sure ALL questions will be answered (with Bismarck course precisely determined between 220°, 200° or 180° between :06 and 6:09, with very minor adjustment anyway to the overa...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

To comment on the post of Mr. Jurens above: Yes, I agree 100% but I see a bit more here. It is not only a different view on what is counted as fact and what as assumption. More significantly, model predictions from a theory are turned into facts and then useed to support the theory (e.g. reconstruct...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Antonio and Alberto's maps and analysis are simply the best that exist today, and that's all there is to it. What does "the best" mean? For sure it can not mean "the most accurate". However, if you mean they threw everything into one pot and boil it for a long time, then yes. But that just shows th...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Now let's summarize in 3 steps: 1) We have a theory (aka battlemap) based on tons of uncertain infomation. The authors believe if they add more and more uncertain information, that the significance of the theory is strengthened while in fact it is weakened (real world: multiplication of partly inter...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello everybody, the real revelation everybody will easily realize in the Bundesarchiv while managing the Lagemann file will be this one : Lagemann_file_Schmitz_Westerholt_print.jpg which is a logic confirmation of the PoW gunnery plot, the Bismarck closure rate with PoW, and as many forum members ...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

possibly Mr.Wadinga has not understood yet that NH69722 is showing the first salvo NOT due to Lagemann caption, but due to the careful analysis done by Antonio on the smoke and the expended cartridges on PG quarterdeck.... :kaput: Bye, Alberto There isn't anything like this to understand.
