What I took from it was that the ‘revisionists’ who tried to belittle the extent of damage, need to re-assess. The point was well made that the repair of the 3 damns took considerable resources away from other parts of the Third Reich. In particular from the defence of the channel coast and so saved lives and time in the allied invasion.
Yes, many un-suspecting German lives were lost, but total war means what it says.
And yes, in ¾ hour’s time I will be keeping the silence.
