Re: New Poll: critical moment for Germany

I voted for the the moment where the Germans stood in front of the gates of Moscow and couldnt take it...

Stalin stayed in Moscow and if Moscow would have fallen, Stalin would have fallen, and Russia would have fallen...

But the Wehrmacht didnt take Moscow, and from then on it was only retreating...

Re: Colonel Stauffenberg and Tom Cruise´s movie

Hey Karl I dont agree with you... Hitler did betray Germany. He wanted to do everythin for Germany, he wanted it to be a World Power, etc, but he also wanted his War. He did not tell the comman man, but as Müllenheim-Rechberg said, Hitler always wanted his war. And there is no excuse for that. As a ...

Plan Z

Hey in a book I read lately, it was stated that Dönitz fought for puttin U-boots into massproduction since the beginnging and that Raeder wanted to carry out his Plan Z. The fact that with this Plan Z he tried to create a "balance of power" with the RN. This though was not accomblished because the w...

Russian Subs

hey

except for the infamous Gustloff incident by S13, I've never read or heard about any bigger attacks.

Re: Submarine + Surface Ship Actions

Yeah, I guess you are right concerning the speed...

even though the XXI subs could go 23kn submerged....which would have been around the speed HMS Rodney could go


its still a wonderful thought that Bismarck has 4 german subs accompaning him when KGV and Rodney approach for Final Battle.... :wink:

Re: Submarine + Surface Ship Actions

But wouldnt it have been a great strategical advantage?

The Capital Ships would have had to reduce speed, but in general terms, it would have been pretty effective or not?

Submarine + Surface Ship Actions

Re: Graf Zeppelin vs HMS Ark Royal and Victorious

So when you look at the scenario, everyone thinks that a well trained crew of British sailors with its aircraft crews, could beat a German crew. I mean, the fact that they had 20 years more of training, doesnt mean that it's neccessaryly better. What i mean is, that when the German pilots would get ...
