The Wizard of the Saddle
NRO ^ | July 20, 2007 | W. Thomas Smith Jr.

Forrest's soldiers loved him. His fellow generals admired him. His enemies were terrified at the mere mention of his name. Gen. Robert E. Lee said of his finest subordinate commanders, the most remarkable was one he "had never met" — Forrest. And U.S. and foreign military officers alike have studied Forrest’s campaigns over the decades since the end of the war. It has even been speculated that some aspects of the German Blitzkrieg were patterned after some of Forrest's operations.

In other words, you're STILL "standing by" your WHOPPER???

I haven't told any whopper. All I've said from Day 1 is that there doesn't seem to be any REAL evidence for the existence of this book that you've used to shift the blame from your ludicrous claim that there's a captured U-boat sitting in a Galveston park. And as I demonstrated, a craigslist ad doesn't constitute proof of jack. Show me a link to a credible source--a library, a real bookseller, or a bibliography--that lists the work and I'll happily retract. By the way, I just searched the US Naval Academy library for the book. Guess what?

So what was the author's rank and branch of service again?

then-Colonel Irwin Rommel when he was visiting the United States in 1937/38

There is a novel "Rommel and the Rebel" by Lawrence Wells. The plot is based on the idea that one of Montgomery's intelligence officers enlists the help of a Southern historian, who is an expert on N.B. Forrest, to help predict Rommel's moves in the desert, based on "What would Forrest do?" Not great literature, but fairly good reading.

SORRY, but that won't fly.

what you SHOULD do is APOLOGISE to everyone & LEAVE FR, "with tail tightly tucked between your legs".

I inherited a picture from my grandfather of then-Colonel Irwin Rommel when he was visiting the United States in 1937/38 to study the cavalry tactics of the Civil War. From what my grandfather could remember, Rommel concentrated on Forrest, Morgan, Wheeler, and Stewart.

You might want to check your grandfather's story. Rommel wasn't a cavalry officer and he never visited the U.S. His career prior to WWII was with mountain troops, and the book that he was known for was actually on infantry tactics. He had nothing to to with mounted or motorized units until 1940.

So, he was a "noted author" who wrote nothing more than a couple of articles for boating magazines and a single book that's so wrong that it claims there's a captured U-boat in a Galveston park?

Let's set the wayback machine to 2004 and the post #36 of the thread U.S. Coast Guard 214th Birthday Celebration ~ August 4 2004

To: All

bet ya'll didn't know that the CG ARMED private fishing boats in the Chesapeake Bay AND provided arms (including water-cooled heavy MGs AND some "light deck guns", read CANNONS!) to the Maryland, New York, Rhode Island, Texas (fyi,all TX gunboats are named/re-named for TX cities, when serving in wartime) and Virginia "state naval forces" (read:PRIVATEERS!), during WW2.

SOME of those fishing boats/yachts got into SHOOT-OUTS with German submarines & WON! all of the "privately-crewed gunboats did VALUABLE service to the war effort!

The CITY OF GOLIAD (formerly the 64-foot motor yacht, EEL) captured a U-boat in 1942 & towed it to Galveston,TX as a PRIZE OF WAR! (the U-boat is now berthed in the Galveston County Park.)

The CITY OF GONZALES (formerly the 88-foot sailing yawl, GRAY-HOUND)fought a 2-hour surface battle with another U-boat & SUNK the submarine, with a direct hit from a WW1-surplus ANTI-TANK GUN!

see the book YACHTS AGAINST SUBS by RAM(retired) L.B.N.Gnaedinger for more details! facinating book!

You might be correct, but the note on the back of the picture states: "Oberst Rommel observing American Maneuvers from Mr. Aretz, Leutnant a.D. Hammelburg, Germany."

If you have any thoughts on this matter, I'd love to hear them.

I just did a little checking, and while I couldn’t find anything about Rommel in the US, I did find out that in 1938, while an instructor at Potsdam, he started writing a book on armored cavalry and tank tactics that was intended as a sequel to his book on infantry tactics.

From what I've read Rommel's sequel was a project he started much later, during or shortly after the African campaign. He died before he could get very far. He could hardly have written it any earlier than that since prior to 1939 there weren't any proven tank tactics to write about, and Rommel himself didn't participate in developing them or command armored units until 1940.

The Tank In Attack (also known as Tank Attacks or Panzer greift an in German) is an unfinished book on armoured tactics and warfare by Erwin Rommel. It was to be the follow-up and companion work to his earlier and highly successful Infantry Attacks.

It is believed he started writing it while commandant of the War Academy at Wiener Neustadt (Theresian Military Academy) in 1938, though he may have started earlier during his time as an instructor at the Potsdam War Academy (1935–37). His career as a military theorist and instructor, however, was preempted by his duties as a commander and soldier during World War II. For the next several years he was too busy as a practitioner of armored warfare to write about it.

Following the end of the North African Campaign in 1943, he again started work on it, drawing upon his, by then, extensive experience and notes. But once more war, along with ill health, interfered as he was put in charge of the defense of Normandy in 1944. After his staff car was strafed by an RCAF Spitfire fighter on July 17 of that year, he again started on the work while recuperating from his injuries. But he was soon implicated in the July 20 Plot against Adolf Hitler and compelled to commit suicide on October 14.

The Tank In Attack exists only in the form of scattered manuscripts and notes, but due to the fame of its author, it has achieved legendary status as a work of military literature. Most of what was to be in The Tank in Attack can be found in the book The Rommel Papers, which is made from notes and diary entries by Field Marshal Rommel during the Africa campaign.

Like I said, there's a liar in the picture but I'm not sure it's Bubba. An ad that purports to sell a book that suddenly grew from magazine article sized to 400-plus pages, mentions nonexistent organizations and nonexistent ships, and that deals with a chapter of history that nobody, but nobody except you and he says happened? Yeah, I'd say there was a liar in here somewhere.

So, let's see where we are:

You claim that you now have smoking gun proof that "Yachts Against Subs" actually exists, based on an easily-faked craigslist classified ad by someone who, coincidentally, has the same last name as your uncle. Is that about it?

So what is this web of lies I've allegedly been caught in? All I've said from the beginning is that I can't find any evidence of "Yachts Against Subs" anywhere. I've searched library catalogues--including ones you've named--bibliographies, booksellers and more. I've challenged you repeatedly to show that it exists, and the best you've been able to come up with is a CL ad by someone with one of your family names. I hardly feel caught in a web, there, sport.

Now you, on the other hand, have told us that: The Yankees burned down the synagogue in Alexandria years before any synagogue was built there.

That there was a captured U-boat in a Galveston park.

That the Spanish were celebrating Thanksgiving near El Paso "100+" years before the Pilgrims landed in 1620, even though Cortez only landed in Mexico in 1519 and the first expeditions didn't approach the El Paso area until the 1540s.

Challenged to support any of these ludicrous claims, you sputter and fume and attempt to change the subject, calling any source presented no good while never presenting any of your own.

You want to know who I am? Fine. I'm Heyworth. Want to go tell on me? Go for it. It won't do a thing for your credibility around here. Now, I've told you who I am. Answer the questions.

Again, what lie? Are you claiming that I've found evidence for the existence of "Yachts Against Subs" and just haven't told you about it? Sorry, that's just not the case. And I've looked for it a lot of places, starting with the University of Houston library, where you said it was available. A few of the Lost Causers have looked for it as well, as I recall, but no one has ever been able to come up with it. No lie there. Show me something other than someone who oh-so-coincidentally shares a family name with you listing it on Craigslist and I'll be happy to say, "Wow, you were right." Then I'll try to read it and find where the author claims there's a U-boat in a Galveston park.

Now, how about answering some of those questions you said you'd answer if I 'fessed up. When was that Thanksgiving again?

my GUESS is that YOU "dreamed up" the Bankhead reference to TRY to get out of the web of LIES that you've caught yourself in.(btw, NOBODY that i know of on FR trusts you to be HONEST about ANY subject, so your trying to do so is a waste of time. fyi, there are NO such people in the family. indeed there are (to my knowledge) ANY Bankhead(s) in ANY state except AL,MS,TN & TX.

btw, aren't you the one who keeps saying that things advertised on craigslist are NOT trustworthy/real or some other similar NONSENSE??? (you cannot have it BOTH ways.)

furthermore you ADMITTED that YOU posted a FRAUD on craigslist while DESPERATELY "flailing around" trying to think of a way OUT of the tapestry of LIES that you got caught in, which made your reputation for "fair play" & honesty even worse than it already was.

face it, your reputation is TOAST & you are CORRECTLY identified as a KNOWING, serial, LIAR.

so you ADMIT that you are a DUer???? = interesting. did you converse with the other former FReepers of "the DAMNyankee coven of lunatics, REVISIONISTS, creeps, LEFTISTS, nitwits & BIGOTS", who i understand are ACTIVE on DU,"Daily Kos", "clown posse" & on the A.N.S.W.E.R. web-messes ????

to ALL: it should "tell you something" about the "DAMNyankee coven" (DAMNyankees being defined as the 10-15% percent of northerners who HATE the southland & southerners. they are SELF-righteous, sanctimonious,arrogant, narrow-minded & BIGOTED.), inasmuch as they have NUMEROUS former members NOW on the LEFTIST/south-HATING/America-HATING websites, but there are NO former "good 'ole rebs" on those sites!

fwiw,my grandfather always said that DAMNyankees were NO better than racists & IF they were not so busy HATING the southland & southerners, that they would be some other sort of BIGOT. my grandfather was CORRECT about that, as he was about so many other things.

So I take it you've lied again, and aren't going to answer any of those questions.

fyi, there are NO such people in the family. indeed there are (to my knowledge) ANY Bankhead(s) in ANY state except AL,MS,TN & TX.

You need to look a little harder. Anywho.com shows a dozen listings for Bankheads in AZ, 9 in AR, 77 in California, 63 in Utah, 7 in MA, and 16 in NY, just to search a few at random. Here's the web page for Don Bankhead, a city council member from Fullerton, CA

Then there's Harrison Bankhead, a jazz bassist from Chicago...

btw, aren't you the one who keeps saying that things advertised on craigslist are NOT trustworthy/real or some other similar NONSENSE??? (you cannot have it BOTH ways.)

What both ways? I think the listing was a fraud. I showed how easy it is to list a fake item on there, and had I not admitted up front that it was a fake, it would likely have gone undetected. When I got the email from "Tara Bankhead" and recognized it as a family name you've bandied about, my suspicions were strengthened. Of course that whole fantasy story about the nice old man going with her to the financial office of the college (in August) and paying off her entire debt was a bit of a tip-off, too.

Speaking of serial lies, when was that Thanksgiving outside El Paso again>

Finally, if I'm such a liar, how do you know I'm not lying when I say I'm Heyworth? I might have just told you that to try to get you to answer the questions you said you'd answer if I gave you a name. I could have just as easily chosen modernman, or Walt, or any other name.

stand, you might do a Bankhead search on the People Search part of Yahoo. There are lots of Bankheads in other states.

Are you any relation to Confederate General John Bankhead Macruder?

So you ADMIT that you are a DUer????

I'll admit that I've posted there once or twice over the years, mostly to tell them that they're wrong about some fact or another. After the Kelo decision it was fun to watch them try to get their heads around the fact that it was the conservatives on the court who had dissented--they couldn't believe that the liberals were willing to give their property to corporations, but the conservatives weren't. But in general they're rather shrill and irritating bunch and not very entertaining.

did you converse with the other former FReepers of "the DAMNyankee coven of lunatics, REVISIONISTS, creeps, LEFTISTS, nitwits & BIGOTS", who i understand are ACTIVE on DU,"Daily Kos", "clown posse" & on the A.N.S.W.E.R. web-messes ????

Like I said, I've never found a thread there about the Civil War, and I've never been to Kos or ANSWER or any of those other sites. I have no idea where you've gotten your information, but if visiting DU is a capital offense around here, you'll have to go tell everyone on the DU Funnies thread here that they're in big trouble. And as I said before, the History Channel forums are a much more likely place to find me. There's one of your Lost Cause compadres over there who is constantly trying to link to Stormfront and other white supremacist sites.

fyi, i don't trust ANYTHING said by "bubba, the LIAR". (fyi, i hadn't thought about you ALSO lying about being "heyworthLESS, the HATER".)

as i said, my guess is that YOU are the LIAR, who came up with the "Bankhead dodge", trying DESPERATELY to think of some way/ANY way to get yourself out of the MESS you've made with LIES by the dozen.

btw, what part of "to my knowledge" did you NOT understand??? OR are you just being your usual clueLESS/arrogant/hate-FILLED self???

Yeah, as usual your ignorance shines through.

What's even more curious about the craigslist thing is that this "Tara Bankhead" claims to be in Providence, RI. If you do a Google search on the name, you find that there is a Tara Bankhead listed as an Office Specialist for Providence City, UT. Link here

well as i said to another south-HATING, lying, arrogant, DAMNyankee, i may be "ignorant" but at least i'm neither a DAMNyankee,a LIAR,a BIGOT and/or a FOOL.

frankly, i must tell you that you fit the description of all those terms.

fyi, why not go ahead & admit that this whole "situation" is NOTHING but a "put-up job" to TRY to retrieve yourself from the "web of lies" that you created??? (fyi, it won't work, as your reputation is ruined beyond repair. NOBODY is DUMB enough to believe ANYTHING you now post.)

They're free to find some evidence of the existence of "Yachts Against Subs" that's more reputable than an easily-faked craigslist ad. If anyone does that, I'll be more than happy to admit I was wrong.

Again, I can't figure out what "web of lies" you're talking about. You're the one who has been busted for lying over and over again and who has never once presented any evidence for anything

When was that Thanksgiving outside El Paso again? When was that Alexandria synagogue burned? When was that U-boat captured (or sunk--I notice you have a different version of the story on Post #88 of this message board)

laughing AT you!!!

NOBODY believes ANYTHING you post. NOW, none of us will even believe that you used to be "heyworthLESS, the HATER", FOOL & BIGOT (absent PROOF), though you're certainly DISHONEST enough to be that CREEP.

I don’t know about the ACLU, but we can praise guys like Generals Jackson and Lee without raising up guys like this.

So they don't believe that you claimed that the Spanish celebrated Thanksgiving outside El Paso "100+" years before the Pilgrims landed?

They don't believe that you claimed that United States soldiers burned down the synagogue in Alexandria, even though both a historical marker (the photo of which can be found online) and the local synagogue both say no synagogue was built in Alexandria until well after the war?

They don't believe that you claimed that there's a captured U-boat in a Galveston park?

Because I can link to you saying all those things.
