Re: Feindliche Ortung

I am aware of this, I'm just curious about this mentioning of the torpedoes (my native language is German, and it is very clear in the report).

Re: Feindliche Ortung

Thanks!

The interesting new part (well, at least for me) is, that, according to her log, Prinz Eugen detected and evaded Hood's torpedoes.

Has this been discussed before, e.g. can it be confirmed as a false alarm?

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody, Q.E.D. : the worst deniers (D&S) can't shut up , even if wisely suggested to do so by their colleague (who, at least, had the common sense to understand that it was impossible to counter all the evidences presented here)..... :stubborn: In case this refers to me: Wrong. I just have...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

My fellow deniers, May I make the suggestion to let this ridiculous topic rest once for all, simply by not reacting anymore. Let the private investigators have their theory, and let them be happy by having the last posts, repeating their claims how often they like to. It is simply useless to discuss...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

I realized that for you and someone else it is a problem that after 75 years somebody was able to search more into this event and bring out all the supporting evidences about it from the beginning until the end of this " regrettable aftermath " that this " Denmark Strait Saga " was all about. I can...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

At one point, Antonio referred to his military career, e.g. he indicated that only officers like him are somewhat qualified to judge on this matter (or have a deep interest in "revealing the truth"). Also, his posting signature shows that he is very much anchored in the system of military ranks and ...

Re: Bismarck analysis

As a matter of fact, KGV was the first one to obtain a hit (ca. 5 minutes after opening). It is another myth that the first hit was the Anton/Bruno silencer by Rodney. If memory serves correctly, KGV obtained a hit at the base of the forward superstructure first. German reports mention that the fir...

Re: The KGV and Adm fuel signals on May 26 and 27.

Anybody who has read Kennedy's book, can only be amazed by the amount and accuracy of well-researched information packed into such a small book. To imply that Kennedy made up a story is almost comical. Kennedy created a master piece, using a novelist's language and story line to represent a wealth o...

Re: Can the German Navy Be Saved?

Germany has flushed billions down the drain and hamstrung its own economy through its Energiewende policies. All this has proven futile and has always been unnecessary. It boils down to priorities. Germans economy is hamstrung??? Just a 2-minute online research: * The German economy grew 2.2 percen...

Re: Direct Hits received by H.M. Ships on May 27

Wadinga et al., there is one simple rule at internet forums: DON'T FEED THE TROLLS. How to recognize a troll? For example, simply be the frequent use of specific symbols like " :think: ". (Actually, this symbol is called "think"; isn't it ironic that it is used by people who do completely the opposi...

Re: Political correctness gone mad?

This is such a ridicolous statement, it is unbelievable. You obviously don't have any idea what peer-reviewed science is, and what peer-reviewed journals are. Have you ever published in a peer-reviewed journal ? (I did, more than 20 times; it is my job; not in climate studies, this is not my field)....
