I wanted to share this with the community; I remember the Phoenix came up in an earlier post, along with the story of her last moments as the Belgrano. I remember years ago seeing a single photo of the ship as she was being abandoned. Apparently, there were others, taken by a survivor.

Hello,

Is there one person in the world that thinks that war is kind?
War is hell!
War is killing people!
War is making your enemy suffer enough so he looses the will to fight!
And if you say that war should be human that is a big mistake, war is human but the ugliest side of humanity!

Thanks for the URL, nice site.

Especially recommended because it doesn't limit itself to the onesided British version of events.

OTOH the Brits played to win, that's never an issue of being fair, however as the site clearly states - the Belgrano was a legitimate target as later recognized by the Argentine government.

Who says that a war ticket cannot be to ones political advantage?

HMS Conqeuror remains the only nuclear-powered submarine ever to sink an enemy warship.

( Well, at least as far as public records are concerned.)
