Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody, from a Military stand point nobody can refute to admit that the conduct in action on May 24th, 1941 of RearAdm Wake-Walker and Capt Leach was surely not an example of the Nelsonian fighting attitude they teach in Dartmouth to the Royal Navy Officers, ... just the opposite, ... and I...

Hello everybody, continue with the photo correctly captioned by Lagemann and Busch : Bundesarchiv_Bismarck_first_salvo.jpg Busch_caption_1943.jpg … even not knowing the German Language the text of both the document as well as the photo captions should be clear enough.

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait
