Following his watery and highly suspicious death, Robert
Maxwell, the Czechoslovakian Daily Mirror media tycoon was buried in Israel
and many of his effects were sold off. Among them the porcelain dining table

The Royal Family had an eye to some of this booty, ostensibly for 'safe
keeping' of course. Equally naturally, of course, they had commissioned the
reptilian shirt-lifting Soviet spy, Anthony Blunt, to travel to Hanover to
take possession of the German Crown Jewels.
The residents of Buck House, otherwise known as the most expensive council
house in England, were later forced to return them to their rightful owners.
Some jewels however, were never returned. Their fate is a matter of some
Blunt incidentally was also instructed to recover correspondence and
documents relating to the Duke of Windsor who had abdicated – and who was
known to regard war with Germany as a disaster for Britain.
"HOW DID WE WIN THE WAR?" - LORD ALANBROOK
The late Alan Clark, historian and former Defence Minister in the
Conservative Government of Margaret Thatcher, not long before his death said
that had it not been for US air superiority the Wehrmacht would have won the
battle for France. He added that the Germans would have driven the US armies
back into the sea.
It is indisputable that the Germans were better soldiers, a view confirmed
in the recently published wartime diaries of the late Lord Alanbrook, Chief
of the British Imperial General Staff.
"The Germans are wonderful soldiers,' he said, "How did we ever win?' 'Especially'
he added 'considering Winston Churchill's frequent blind drunkenness and
Eisenhower's total ineptitude as a general'.
Alan Clark had earlier aroused controversy when he said that Britain should
have concluded peace with Germany in 1940 and that Churchill had 'sold
Britain down the river to the USA.'
U.S LOOTS GERMAN ART TREASURES
The United States shamelessly looted Germany after the war's end. Just as
today they empty Iraq's museums and art galleries, everything of value in
Germany was taken by the victor nations.
Millions of pieces of artwork, origination and photographs were ripped from
the German nation's archives, museums and art galleries. The art works
included watercolours painted by Adolf Hitler who was an outstanding artist
Recently, the U.S. Supreme Court let stand a lower court ruling allowing the
U.S. to keep the watercolours that had been seized. They included street
scenes and war landscapes painted by Adolf Hitler before World War 1. The
justices turned aside a challenge by the family of the later German
photographer, Heinrich Hoffmann, which had sought the return of the
paintings – as well as 2,500,000 photographs that had similarly been seized.
The U.S. Army keeps thousands of looted German art works at a government
storage base in Alexandria, Virginia.
A number of priceless relics disappeared from Germany at the war's end.
These included the Sword of Charlemagne. It is said to be somewhere in the
Joe Kennedy, the father of J F Kennedy made his pile out of bootleg liqueur
and was notorious for trying to drag America into World War 2 (The Great
Looting War). He was backed by Franklin D. Roosevelt. When British Prime
Minister Chamberlain showed reluctance for war against Germany he said to
the then U.S. Ambassador Joe Kennedy "that he should press a hot iron to
Before he was made Ambassador however he was made a fool of in one of those
embarrassing little displays of human frailty. FDR ordered the bootlegger to
drop his pants to prove that he was as bow- legged as legend would have it.
Such nice people our leaders!
THE QUEER FIRST LADY
The U.S. President was used to mockery. His wife Eleanor, who it later
emerged had robbed funds from a charity set up to feed starving children in
post war Europe, was a practicing bi-sexual. One of her lovers was Lorena
Hickock as was revealed in the book, 'Roosevelt and the Royals.'
In a letter to 'Dear Peter (the King of Yugoslavia) President Roosevelt
ordered the young monarch to dismiss the popular General Draza Mihailovich,
who had so successfully stemmed the Red Army's advance. He advised him to
replace him with Broz-Tito, a communist partisan. Upon his appointment the
anti-Communist mass killings began, with the full assistance of British
