First Hand Accounts accounts?
First hand accounts aren't reliable. College professors will stage an incident, then ask the students questions about it, and then show them the results. Go to the Battle of Midway Roundtable. There are conflicting firsthand accounts about VT-8's course among other things.
How do you explain the Az survivor who said the AZ was in the process of being repainted into ‘blue” just prior to the attack but it went no further than height of turret 2? Another survivor described blue as well. 5D is not blue and is described as Gray (black to me). Are we not to believe the S&S chip cards? And if weathered for 15 years would not 5D lightened yes but not to blue as seen in 1956. So the standing basis for Pearl Harbor colors 5D and 5L is that camera film is interpretative and first hand accounts useless? Hmm I guess that is why my AZ kit remains shelved.
WOW! Does he really believe he's got it all figured out? OMG!
