Better known as a good way to ruin a perfectly useful battleship.

But it is of course necessary to ignore the fact that Zimm also says that the mission commander (Fuchida) completely screwed up his own attack


No, its not...because what i wrote about is a completely different subject. In regards to Fuchida, what Zimm wrote about the subject I commented on was that Fuchida was a major source behind the scenario regarding the Operational wargaming sessions being a sham as related by past historians. A story that Zimm disputes. Nothing more, or less. You yourself have waxed poetic on the reliability of Fuchida's memory in the past. Not in a good way i'll add.

Seems a lot like "cherry picking" to me.


Sounds like you venting your hatred of the Japanese again to me.

According to Japanese sources, anything Fuchida said should be taken with mountain of salt...
