Re: Werner Baumbach ship destroyer

Thanks for your thoughts, Stig, and I wholeheartedly agree with your comments about the obsession ad nauseam over fighters at the expense of everything else. I never have been able to understand this fixated focus on what was just 1% to 2% of the entire Luftwaffe. Double ditto on the books, too. One of my favorite stops during my many research visits to Washington between 1979 and 1992 was the Library of Congress where I was able to finagle stack privileges. I was like a 7-year-old let loose in a candy factory - acres and acres of shelves holding 40,000,000 books. I guess the fighter fanatics can justifiably turn around and point their finger at me and say, "to each his own obsession!"
