Literally tons of papers have been written on the subject of the engagement that proved fatal to the HMS Hood – if you take the time to watch this it actually makes more sense than any of the “studies” written – whether it is right or wrong – chances are are we will never know for sure . . .
Enjoy . . .
And of course Johnny Horton – I couldn’t resist . . .
As a side note – the movie the clips are from in the music video is the 1960 film “Sink the Bismarck” and is worth watching – it is worth it for the accurate depiction of ship operations – when the ships are banging away at each other the order is given – “SHOOT” – you do not say “FIRE” – that has a totally different meaning – if fire is used it is qualified as in “OPEN FIRE” or “COMMENCE FIRE or “COMMENCE FIRING” – one of the few movies out there that is that accurate . . .
Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
