ABSTRACT
The author presents his views on reports of the experts. He cautions anyone to be discerning when reading these reports, particularly, those from military experts. He looks over the files from publications on the Spanish civil war during the regime of General Francisco Franco and the pre-Blitz conditions in the Balkans to highlight his thoughts on how some facts have been erroneously communicated by military experts. He suggests to read reports on military operations with skepticism.
