The Denmark Strait Court Martial Saga -> the true story

Postby Antonio Bonomi » Sun Dec 17, 2017 2:17 pm

Hello everybody,

this post and thread is NOT for discussion but only to be used as REFERENCE LINK for ALL the related threads written on the many years of discussion on this forum already made.

Since the arguments frame should be considered CLOSED and we expect no more BIG argument news, I kindly ask anybody willing to add post's about this subject to use the already provided threads listed for this reason here below.

I have to thank the Royal Navy Official Historian for World War 2, namely Stephen Roskill for having preserved all documents and related links on his Churchill Cambridge Archives and his publications :

In order to honor a soldier, we have to tell the truth about what happened over there. The whole, hard, cold truth. And until we do that, we dishonor her and every soldier who died, who gave their life for their country. ( Courage Under Fire )

Hello everybody,

Phil Gollin wrote to me on July 8th, 2013 : " you are a complete idiot ( fact, not a "flame war" ) ".

I was waiting for the most idiot ( just sending back to you your nice wording ) forum member to show up and " troll " my above post.

You only have just demonstrated, ... once again, ... who you really are, ... and why you are here in.

Congratulations :clap:

Bye Antonio :D

Hello everybody,

the link point 4 is NOT the charge for RearAdm Wake-Walker Court Martial request attempt by Adm Pound, it is only the link for a Cover Up of the heavy cruiser distances.

Here you have the correct link to the charge for the RearAdm Wake-Walker Court Martial attempt by Adm Pound, the missed re-engagement with the HMS Prince of Wales :
