I think someone wants just to take his revenge for being deeply annoyed by facts...
The above-referenced post was offered in an attempt to illustrate, in a polite way, the intellectual error of representing opinion as fact. With respect to your argument about a "wrong statement", let me assure you that I am by no means annoyed, or even surprised.
Your opinion, insofar as I understand your comments so far, currently stands as follows -
[ 1 ] The reason that Prince of Wales lost the gunnery plot was a violent turn to starboard to avoid the wreckage of Hood, followed by the large turn-away to port ordered by Leach to break off the action.
[ 2 ] That Prince of Wales was not under effective fire because no damage from the seven hits had affected the main battery guns of Prince of Wales.
[ 3 ] That the true reason for the turn-away was a loss of nerve on the part of Captain Leach.
Please correct me if I have in any way erred.
I think the expectation is that POW should have stayed put and been offered up a sacrifice to further enshrine the glory of messrs Lutjens,Lindemann and Schneider.
