Saw a documentary on national television about a bombing raid on the Shell House in Copenhagen during WWII. The first wave of bombers hit the target, but because one bomber went down over the city, the next two waves of bombers believed the smoke from the crashed plane was the target, which led to the unfortunate bombing of a school, killing 86 children, and injuring around 120 people.

Crazy fact: The Shell House was the Gestapo headquarter in Copenhagen, and because of their fear of being bombed, they put their prisoners up on the roof to deter the british from bombing. The danish resistance movement deemed it necessary so they gave green light. Crazy enough most of the prisoners of the building got out alive. We're talking a 5-6 story building.

"Operation Carthage" very daunting mission and very hard,but I saw that too they took out the floors but the mission also had huge mistakes the fighters were off so the fighters shot at the same spot finally taking out the floor with the Gestapo but than a plane clipped a building and crashed into a church or school and children were killed very sad......but that is war no one wins

If memory serves me right they used those fast Mosquito Bombers which were also used in another similar called Oslo Mosquito raid

I'm a big WW1 & 2 history nut,let me make it clear though I depise war We always must try at diplomacy no matter how severe but sadly in WWII it was a mess and spiraled out of control fast and became the worst war mankind has ever faced,basically "Total War" term used by a German General Ludendorff.But I am interested in the history of it the people,tactics,politics,material,etc

I consider myself a WWII history nut too. You're right about the planes.

Was there a bombing raid in Oslo too?

"New York Doll" (about Arthur "The Killer" Kane bass player for the "New York Dolls" one of my fav bands btw)

I saw this... really interesting. I'm really into "Rockumentaries" particularly the punk rock era in the 70's.

This might be considered an artsy piece of shit compared to the usual structure of documentaries but I nevertheless, I just finished watching this. It's debatable whether it should be considered a documentary or not, but alas it's commonly tagged as one.



Looks interesting enough. The music reminds me of a certain ultra-violent film I know of.
It really is interesting. A documentary that's dictated only by time lapse and stock footage set to music with no dialogue and no definitive plot. It's actually the first of a trilogy of documentaries of similar style, the trailer I posted is the most well known and arguably the best of the three.

Recently, I watched a documentary on the Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan incident from 20 years ago through Tonya's perspective. After watching it, I kinda feel bad for Tonya Harding even though if she really was behind the whole clubbing your rival in the leg plot.

Looks like something I'd really enjoy.  It's amazing how little need for dialog there can be.

I consider myself a WWII history nut too. You're right about the planes.

Was there a bombing raid in Oslo too?

Again if memory serves me right the Oslo bombing raid was complete mess total disaster for the allies chalk it up there with "Operation Market-Garden",but I'm not sure

I go back as much as I can and I love jamming with the street musicians a lot of them do older stuff which is great but when they heard my NYC accent they ripped into some Ramones lol right by the beach good times

There was something in the news that they found one of the last Franco statues or something like that (may he burn in hell that fascist pig he let Germans destroy Guernica.)

Have you seen the Gernikako Arbola? I know it's been destroyed,replanted there are 3 sites very sacred Tree

That is a moving painting I love it as well

and as for Franco well even though he remained neutral (not really) he actually sent his "Blue Division" to help the Germans on the Russian front.But the BD really had no impact,but I always wondered if he sided with Hitler in WW2 what ramifications it would had.he had a army that had combat experience,excellent location for the Germans could have sped up the North Africa campaigns.Its very scary how close that madman almost came to making Europe one big Nazi flag

My grandfather Marcos and uncle Ramon were not that far from the bombing but saw the after effects and were just disgusted and horrified and he knew Franco would win and the Republic would fall very sad when I read his diaries which we still have

It's crazy that it was almost 6 months to the day that when the Spanish civil war ended WW2 began

We actually had to laminate most of the pages some had water damage,time wear and tear,etc but it's a glimpse into such a crazy time,I kinda miss that people don't keep diaries but than again I guess all these network sites are diaries in some way.but to hold history in your hands is just something else

Just finished this one. I'm a huge BB King fan and it gave a neat insight to his life where it was hard to find info elsewhere. Though there are a few dull moments and it feels unorganized, it's still worth the watch if you like BB King

I love documentaries. But I don't care for the ones that have an agenda they're trying to push.

I did like Black Fish despite the fact that it seemed one sided.
