Re: KGV and PoW GAR during Op. Rheinubung

Inadequate sampling of a variable equals poor, misleading statistics. Don't confuse the poor man too much. He and his colleague have proven on countless occasions that they are not capable of understanding this or any other foundations of basic scientific work. Let him type in numbers in an Excel s...

Re: KGV and PoW GAR during Op. Rheinubung

Hello everybody, Another vile provocation regarding an offer for a report that was made by me in this very forum for free for everybody (at a time when reciprocal respect was still a rule, of course).... Please see last sentence here http://www.kbismarck.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=6834&p=76840&h...

Re: KGV and PoW GAR during Op. Rheinubung

Hello everybody, ignoring the vile provocations coming from degraded people, angry for their embarrassing IMPOTENCE to politely counter arguments, These things (e.g. the presented fire rates, the battle map, letters and phone calls, etc.) are not arguments, or they don't provide any base for any ar...

Re: KGV and PoW GAR during Op. Rheinubung

Byron, don't let the two clowns drag you down on their level. At these abysmal depths, they for sure beat you with their experience in silliness, ignorance, and trolling. Even with two-year-old children one can have a more useful conversation. It is just not worth it. Again, nobody takes them seriou...

Re: KGV and PoW GAR during Op. Rheinubung

"As a matter of interest, how long was the Prinz Eugen film showing the Battle of The Denmark Strait. Ive just watched something portraying to be the film online which was quite short and shaky (with a shot of HMS Hoods funeral pyre in between). The actual on film time showing Bismarck firing probab...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Please let the two gentlemen clowns alone, this is the only way how to end this stupidity and get back to normal. After all, everyone is entitled to their opinion. If I insist to say that the world is flat and that it was created 6300 years ago by god, and I can prove this by [insert any nonsense he...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Paul Mercer: "For those who believe that the officers were cowards..." "those" are only two persons, so you directly address them. If you want to refer to them as Gentlemen, that is of course totally up to you. I think your story will not affect them, since it seems that they base their understandin...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

I said that they made perfect decisions "with hindsight" ONLY, because their timidity allowed anyway to sink the Bismarck without any further loss, while, had they been the heroes that the hooligans still would like to believe, their ships would have sustained heavy damages. This is the most ridico...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody, to read that making a map of an event is useless is the most stupid statement one can write. Again, a (possibly) willful misinterpretation of statements, but exactly the same has happened before on this detail as on many others. It is only talked about the DS battle map, not about ...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

In addition we have now many more elements that confirm what really happened (Antonio's battle reconstruction, Ellis autobiography, German side documents and accounts, etc.) and IMO many of them do not seem to confirm two shining examples of military heroism, as per Kennedy's fairy tale... :think: ...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

4) No alternative battlemap has been presented here to counter Antonio's reconstruction, that nails all the timid officers to their responsibilities during the battle. But what would be the point? We have had a world renowned expert (and cartologist to boot) say that for various reasons an accurate...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

@ Herr Nillson, thanks for having underlined that here in this forum we have a lot ( apparently ) of persons writing about military arguments that never wear an uniform and pretend to explain to the ones having done it, ... even being Officers, ... what are the usual way to do things into a militar...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody, We have seen how the disciplinary rules (" Articles of War ") in force in 1941 were the ones from NDA 1866 ( http://www.pdavis.nl/NDA1866.htm ) and they were still almost the same even in 1957 ( http://www.pdavis.nl/NDA1957.htm ), as logical. The relevant "Articles" for Leach (unde...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

The point is that we "deniers" are reproached with not having worn an officer's uniform ...the "deniers" (nobody among them ever wearing an officer uniform :oops: ) ... Well, some people are just happy with an uniform or any other tag as a replacement for knowledge or critical thinking. If you have...
