THE BATTLE OF
During the days before Christmas 1944 the German armed forces made their
last desperate attempt to repel the British-American invasion of Europe. This
became known as the Battle of the Bulge, which took place on Christmas Day.
The weather conditions at first were in the Germans favour, preventing US
aircraft from operating effectively. As battle opened the Wehrmacht,
spearheaded by panzers, smashed all before them and opened up a massive
rupture in the American lines. As the weather cleared the Germans lacking
similar air support and suffering from lack of fuel, found their momentum
GERMAN POWs MASSACRED
The German troops however fought to the most bitter of ends, knowing they were
defending Europe and the values of Christian Europe from the advance guard of
the culture-busting Big Mac carry-outs and purveyors of pornography.
By this time Churchill's war was virtually over but fierce rearguard fighting
continued throughout occupied Europe that was still being had been bombed back
to the Stone Age, its rootless populations murdered en masse and otherwise
THE STATUE FEW FRENCHMEN WANT
When General Charles de Gaulle's statue was erected in London a misguided
British ex-pat called Brian Reeve wanted to know if Churchill's statue could
be erected in Paris. (Amazing how our most patriotic citizens often choose to
live abroad isn't it?)
The cost was estimated to be $320,000 and a subscription drive was undertaken.
All that was promised was a miserable $56,000 and precious little of that from
the French themselves.
Perhaps the French remembered that it was the British that had sunk their navy,
a navy that Hitler had given the freedom of the seas to protect French
overseas possessions. This Pearl Harbor type of attack resulted in the deaths
of 1,500 French sailors, including those strafed in the water by marauding RAF
fighter pilots. Or perhaps they remembered that the allies had killed many
more French people than had the Germans. P
Perhaps they remembered Dunkirk when after receiving 'we shall never abandon
France and the French' assurances it was a case of British first, French last
and, 'we are fighting to the last Frenchman'. Blighty 'ere we come!
The British red top tabloid The Star, notorious for covering up Soviet
war crimes, recently screamed 'Frogs deserve a good kicking' (thought
the Brits had already given them that?) Not surprisingly such sentiments
whipped up the tattooed ring-nosed football hooligans who cause mayhem on
Reeve did concede that he had received hostile correspondence from irate
French people, the sentiment of which is spelled out in this compendium of
facts, Reeve bemoaned the fact that there wasn't to his knowledge a single
statue of Churchill to be found anywhere in France! Happily, there is a forest
in Israel to Churchill's memory. What great an honour indeed?
|"We are without exception
the greatest robbers and marauders that ever existed on the face of the
globe. We are worse than other countries because we are hypocrites also,
for we plunder and always pretend to do so for other peoples' good." -
Henry Labouchere, Liberal MP and journalist.
THE 'DANCING FUHRER' LIE
Prof. David Dilks giving a lecture at Leeds University (26th March 1972)
disclosed 'that the British version of the famous film in which Hitler skips
for joy at the defeat of France was doctored by us (the British) for
propaganda purposes." He also revealed that "Hitler's tread that day was in
fact remarkably sober." Those attending the lecture included Lord Boyle,
former Financial Secretary to the Treasury, and Mrs. Stephen Lloyd, daughter
of the former Prime Minister.
Just who was it who really enthused about the
sterilisation of life's unfortunates? "The unnatural an increasingly
rapid growth of the feeble-minded and insane classes, coupled as it is
with a steady restriction among all the thrifty, energetic and superior
stocks, constitutes a national and race danger which it is impossible to
exaggerate . . . I feel that the source from which the stream of madness
is fed should be cut off and sealed up before another year has passed."
–Churchill to Lord Asquith, 1910.
BRITISH MALTREATMENT OF POWs
British Army wartime files opened in 1955 reveal acts of brutality carried out
against German POWs. Some were punished and even dismissed from the service
for acts of maltreatment but from 1941 onwards official policy was to turn a
blind eye. From there on woe to hapless German servicemen who fell into
that time I did not have idea yet, what a great and undoubtedly helpful
role the swindle plays in the existence of those great nations, which
enjoy the status of democratic freedom." Winston Churchill,
Weltabenteuer im Dienst, Leipzig 1946. P.61.
THE SINKING OF A GERMAN HOSPITAL SHIP
On November 18 1940 two British warplanes attacked the German hospital ship
Tubingen in the Adriatic near Pola. As a consequence many Germans, many of
whom were medical personnel, were wounded or died, and the ship was sunk. The
ship was clearly marked with the Red Cross insignia but this was ignored.
On this occasion the British apologised but the pilots responsible were never
court martialled although under the terms o the Geneva and other conventions
they were clearly war criminals.
SAVING PRIVATE EISENHOWER
Second Lt. John Eisenhower (spot the connection) graduated from West Point on
June 6th 1944, and was sent directly to U.S. Occupied Europe as 'an eager
platoon leader ready to do his duty.'
Nothing to do with pop's influence of course but this young blade, eager to
save the world, was never involved in combat duty despite this period of
Afterwards young Eisenhower remarked: "The attitude of the French was
sobering, indeed. Instead of bursting with enthusiasm they seemed not only
indifferent but also sullen. There was considerable cause for wondering
whether these people wished to be liberated." (Shades of Iraq and Afghanistan
it seems. Do the Americans never learn?)
Don't take it to heart, sonny boy. Sixty years on and the Americans are still
scratching their heads and wondering why the French (and the world) don't like
THE GREEK TRAGEDY
Robert St. John, the Associated Press correspondent was billeted in Belgrade
when the Germans, to protect their eastern flank against Soviet and British
encirclement, finally pushed through Yugoslavia, Greece and finally Crete.
With the approval of the British Embassy he rushed out a story relating how
300,000 British troops stationed in Greece were ready to repel the Fuhrer's
legions. In fact there were only about 40,000 British troops stationed in
Greece. With the speed and ferocity of earlier blitzkriegs the German Armed
Forces swept southwards virtually unchallenged.
Having successfully escaped to Cairo war correspondent St. John was bemused to
learn that all he had written on Greece had been a fantasy having been based
on misleading official dispatches. He said, 'It seemed to be a tradition
around the better places in Cairo that you mustn't let the sordid side of war
The tenacious correspondent was determined to work objectively and
dispassionately but constantly found his reports sabotaged page by page. Often
a simple line would be deleted to give the opposite effect from that intended.
A priceless example of this was when he correctly observed that, 'The
evacuation from Greece had not been another Dunkirk; the Greece evacuation had
been much worse.'
The censor simply put a line through the second section of the sentence
leaving it to read, 'The evacuation from Greece had not been another Dunkirk.'
Robert St. John and colleagues conservatively reckoned allied casualties to be
20,000 killed, wounded or captured. This had been changed to read 3,000.
