GUEST,musket again BS: Armistice Day (debate) (777* d) RE: BS: Armistice Day (debate) 05 Dec 13

Err no mate. Keith A. Hole of Hertford started the ludicrous idea that anyone disagreeing with him therefore thought that nobody knew what they were doing. Everybody poking fun at him now do so because of being tired of words put in their mouth.

He picks up on sentences out of context and throws them in your face just like he will be doing after reading this post.

I for one questioned the methods of recruitment which relied on propaganda. I then questioned the absurd idea they were well led.

I didn't invent the term "butcher of the Somme" an "eminent historian" did.

They were well led alright. Right up to being given a whistle and a small ladder.

Even Keith can find the myriad news and articles over concerns about marking 100 years next year. Friendly accounts from retired newspaper editors who know where their gong came from helps the airbrush effort.

You can't lead a generation to destruction and write a cosy account of everybody knowing what they were doing and happy with the methods. The reasons for the war are one thing. The butchered and butchering incompetence of how to go about it cannot be ignored. It would be a stain on every town memorial.
