ANOTHER FAILED PREDICTION
OF CHURCHILLIAN PROPORTIONS
On hearing that Britain was preparing to attack neutral
Norway Adolf Hitler prepared for hat country's defensive occupation. England's
swashbuckling First Lord Winston Churchill contemptuously dismissed any
suggestion that Germany would retaliate. He boasted, "All German ships in the
Skagerrak and Kattegat will be sunk."
Winston Churchill's de facto war on Norway,
Sweden and Finland was drawn up on February 5 1940. It was agreed to send up
to four divisions, camouflaged as volunteers to Finland via Norway and Sweden
to seize the countries' iron ore assets. Part of the strategy was aborted
because of Sweden's stated determination to resist Britain's intended invasion.
Eleven days later on February 16, 1940 Churchill ordered British naval forces
to proceed into Norway's territorial waters and to board the German freighter
'Altmark'. On April 8 the Royal Navy began to mine the neutral Scandinavian
country's coastal waters; an act of war that once again blew a gaping hole in
solemnly signed declarations.
As the mining of Norway's ports continued British and French troops were
mobilising to invade Norway. Their first objective was to occupy Narvik and to
clear the port before advancing to the Swedish frontier. Simultaneously
British conscript troops were readied to occupy Stavenger, Bergen and
Hitler was painfully aware that the invasion of a completely encircled Germany
would follow and he surmised that. 'The occupation of Norway by the British
would be a strategic turning movement which would lead them into the Baltic,
where we have neither troops nor coastal fortifications . . . the enemy would
find himself in a position to advance on Berlin and break the backbone of our
The German leader acted decisively and pounced. This produced hysterical
denunciation by the British who didn't take kindly to being beaten to the
punch, especially when they had started the fight.
Churchill believed the mere 2,000 German troops stationed in the coastal town
of Trondheim would be little match for 13,000 British troops. The British Army
was however routed during their encirclement and badly mauled. The remnants
were evacuated by May 1st.
The British then mobilised 20,000 troops and put them ashore at Narvik.
Embarrassingly they too were routed by just 2,000 Austrian Alpine troops,
supported by sailors from the German destroyers based nearby. Along the
Norwegian coastline the remnants of Churchill's defeated British Army in
Norway were simultaneously evacuated.
Churchill had blustered that Hitler's pre-emptive strike against Norway was
'as great a strategic error as Napoleon's invasion of Spain in 1808.' Hardly
the master strategist.
If any question why we died,
Tell them, because our fathers lied.
- Rudyard Kipling (1865 – 1936)
QUISLING NOT GUILTY
The irony is that the Norwegian nationalist leader Vidkun Quisling was no
traitor from which his noble name has become synonymous. An official Norwegian
inquiry into whether any prominent member of the Nasjonal Samling Party
(Vidkun Quisling's political party) had played an active part in the German
invasion reached a negative conclusion. Unfortunately his innocence was
discovered too late. In Soviet Union style the victorious allies has already
had him executed by firing squad. The usual modus operandi: shot at dawn in a
bleak prison yard.
PASSING THE BELGIAN BUCK
When on May 6th the German Army retaliated against French aggression which
quickly resulted in the British and French Armies being routed, Winston
Churchill who had just been pushed into the hot- seat, despite a history of
military blunders, tried to blame the debacle on the Belgian Army.
|By the spring of 1940 fifty
per cent of Britain's national income was being spent on their war
against Germany. Little wonder that the country emerged from it all
impoverished and with her Empire in President Roosevelt's pawn shop.
THE ORIGIN OF THE 'HITLER IS TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD'
"The spread of war was as much an allied responsibility as it was German, even
though repeated frustrations and defeats were capable of being partially
retrieved by portraying the entire unfolding of events as part of a peculiarly
The resolution in the face of total French collapse and the expulsion of
Britain from the Continent set the stage for especially intense world
propaganda about alleged Hitlerian plans to convert the planet into a slave
state on the model of antiquity." - James J. Martin, The Saga of Hog Island
and other Essays.
THE INNOCENT RUSSIAN VICTIM SCAM
One of the myths peddled by the bar-room 'experts' who graduated courtesy via
the History Channel, suggests that Hitler's biggest mistake was to have
invaded the Soviet Union. The claim is that over- zealous Nazi Germany raped
the innocence of the weaker Soviet Union with its invasion in June 1940. In
fact the USSR's militarily machine, poised on Germany's borders, was far
superior to that of their intended victim. Furthermore, this military
juggernaut, its apparatus and support system was unquestionably designed for
offensive and occupation rather than defensive purpose. A defensive military
machine is quite different from an offensive one
By necessity Hitler's strategy was based on his making a pre-emptive strike.
Britain was always a master of the pre-emptive strike; taking on Germany,
France and Spain by attacking via the European mainland. It is what happens
when a country (or person) anticipates being struck and gets their blow in
first. As Napoleon surmised, "He who hits first hits twice."
Standing astride Germany's doorstep, a massive mobilisation of Soviet attack
units and materials. Subsequent undeniable evidence of Soviet intent comes
from a myriad of sources, including their own officers, and the very nature of
the forces involved.
Here then is Stalin's agreed tenet:
- The RKKA (Red Army) is 'the most offensive of all armies.'
- The war will always be conducted on enemy territory.
- The proletariat in the hostile country is a potential ally of the Soviet
- War preparations are for attack; defensive measures serve solely to
protect preparations for attack and the execution of an offensive in the
facing direction. There is no possibility of the penetration of hostile
forces into the territory of the USSR.
This may be new to amateur WW2 sleuths but it wasn't news
to Stalin or those who took his orders, which were:: "The new conditions in
our country, the present international situation, full of unexpected
possibilities, demand a revolutionary power of decision and constant readiness
to launch a devastating attack on the enemy (Germany).
All forms of agitation and propaganda are to be directed to one single goal,
to the political, moral, and fighting preparation of all personnel to wage a
just offensive and an all-out destroying war. All personnel are to be educated
in the spirit of active hatred of the enemy, to the eagerness to take up the
struggle with him, to a readiness to defend our nation on the territory of our
enemy, and to deal him a lethal blow." - Major Koskov, Commander of the 24th
Infantry Regiment of the 44th Infantry Division.
As M. Raphael Johnson, Ph.D. in reviewing 'Stalin's War of Extermination'*
summed up. "The incredible amount of documentation for this extremely
important point – that Stalin was planning an invasion of Germany and western
Europe by extension – leaves no doubt in the (honest) reader's mind, and turns
not only World War Two but any honest appraisal of Germany on its head." - The

aggressive war against first a weakened Germany and then Europe.
The sad fact is that whilst the German armed forces were protecting Europe's
eastern borders the fools to the west of Germany were stabbing them in the
back. This book is available from TBR Book Club, PO Box 15877, Washington,

THE UNDENIABLE FACTS
Reacting angrily to two book reviews published by the notoriously
anti-European Daily Mail, Gena Pokrass writes: "These reviews repeat the
ideological lies of Russian historians.
Hitler and his generals agreed that war on two fronts would be suicidal, but
they had to invade Russia to pre-empt Stalin's massive thrust to cut off
Germany from Romanian oil. Details from Russian archives suggest that this was
due to start in July 1941.
All the defensive systems in the area had been neutralised, airfields had been
moved to the western border, and paratroops had been either concentrated on
the border or were moving towards it.
……… he (Hitler) had to invade sooner rather than later because otherwise all
of Europe was in danger of being occupied by Russia in the name of 'world
revolution through war.'
A mild winter in 1941 would not have saved Hitler's armies, even if they had
occupied Moscow. The Russian government already had alternative headquarters
"GIVE THEM A FAIR TRIAL AND THEN HANG THEM."
Order No. 3 Red Army (released July 1941). 'All commanders and soldiers who
retreated from the front were either to be court martialled and sentenced to
death or merely annihilated on the spot.'
