Cap Arcona article on Fox News


Recommended Posts

Read the article here, if you wish.


I'm only sharing this because it is a shining example of extremely poor journalism. Contrary to the assertion that the story of the Cap Arcona's demise in 1945 has lain secret for 70 years, the story has long been known to those of us with an interest in the history of that period. HMV have offered a very nice model of the ship for at least a decade.


Sigh ... another news 'story' that's really no story at all.

That one's popped recently for some reason.. again.  I suspect the writer came across the book and had one of those "I never heard of this before so it mush have been a secret" moments.  :D  :D
