You forget he wants to rewrite History in general.

If every mistake in that book had been rectified it would be about 5 pages thick.

Many of the TV history programs about WW2 events are plain wrong in many aspects- particularly in the use of video clips.
I appreciate the narrator/author wants atmospheric
shots to illustrate a certain situation- but use of library clips of equipment of post war vintage- or incorrect referral to events that many of us oldies have lived through- simply means such programs lose credability.
Recently a young historian in a short piece referred to the V2 rocket being the precursor to modern space travel - true- but he was standing in the RAF museum in front of and pointing to the
V2 Flying Bomb- just a few seconds of image- that's is all took for me to lose interest totally

V1 Flying Bomb - My slip

Like the recent commentator talking about the Battle of Britain who mentioned a Spitfire jet.

She lost a bit of her credibility with me after that!

and TV programme contains at least one factual error, and often a lot more than that. I often proof-read documents for people, and I can vouch for the fact.

It isn't the end of the world, this was something that should have been picked up and corrected by a proof reader.
