I had some Lego when I was a little fella… but nothing like this!
This is actually a fairly good recounting of events. Back when the Brits had balls, nothing scared them. All the Bismarck did, when it sunk the Hood - was seal its own fate. The Brits were going to sink that monster come hell or high water. This naval duel was going to end only one way, and that was that for that!
The big battleships are largely a thing of the past… although I heard that one was brought out of retirement, fitted with cruise missiles and Phalanx machine guns… and they used it to pound the shit out of Iraq in Gulf War 1. Was it the Iowa? I think they are restoring the Texas as some kind of museum exhibit too.
I am glad the little ones remember these battles and take an interest in history. So many of them are getting pozzed versions of history and are taught that it is something that can be revised if they don’t like it.
I guess Johnny got this one wrong too. The story I have is that the torpedo planes crippled the ship and the fleet closed in to finish it off - as per the cartoon.
Think I’ll spin up Netflix and see what they have for documentaries. JewTube has some great naval yarns on the World Of Warships channel.
Errrr … some are better than others…😉👍
