Blog Review - History of Sorts

I came across another blog post about Josef Jakobs last week. This particular blog, History of Sorts, is written by a Dutchman living in Ireland, Dirk deKlein. Dirk has an interest in history and writes in a fairly engaging way.

His post on Josef can be found here. I'm not sure on his sources as he lists none, nor does he give any sort of credit for the photos that he uses on the site, at least one of which comes from my website and/or blog. There are the usual inaccuracies - that Josef was seated because of his broken ankle and a few new ones. According to Dirk, Josef was not hanged because of his broken ankle and was therefore shot. In actual fact, Josef was shot because he was considered a member of the German military and therefore had a military court martial. Soldiers like to shoot soldiers... a more honourable death than hanging.

Rating
3/5 - inaccuracies and no sources or photo credits
