Subject: RE: BS: I am not an historian but........
Greg, the vast archive of the Imperial War Museum became available in the late 60s, as did the previously secret Government documents under the 50 year rule.
A wealth of data that was not available to earlier historians, but that is not the point.
Isues specific to WWI should be raised on those threads.
I was hoping we could discuss why you and others would not just assume that historians based their findings on research.
Why you would ever imagine that the whole lot might make up a false history while ordinary folk like us knew the truth.
You would find the same stance in other knowledge areas like science laughable.
Why is your stance not laughable?
