GI BLUES STUFF
Guantanamo Bay was a holiday camp compared with the
bestiality of American run so-called POW camps in Europe after the war's end.
"In the U.S. Army prison camps of Germany and France at the end of World War
11, almost four million German soldiers were held prisoner outdoors, in
unsheltered barbed wire enclosures, with little or no food or water, for
months on end. At least 750,000 died of malnutrition and disease.
Most were soldiers of the Wehrmacht who surrendered in May 1945, but scores of
thousands were women, children, and old men. Most of these deaths were listed
simply as 'other losses.'
In painstaking, wide-ranging research, James Bacque has interviewed hundreds
of prisoners, guards and army officers' and has amassed extensive evidence to
reveal the shocking story of a massive crime.
The tragic events reported in this book are highly controversial, and the
author's accusations were for a time suppressed in the United States. But in
the face of scepticism and hostility, James Bacque has made a major historical

post-war bullshit get a copy.
The Independent on Sunday said of this book, "this is a great and grim
masterpiece of investigative journalism, unmasking one of the most successful
cover-ups in modern history.' The Jersey Evening Post added its comment: "This
is not a pleasant book and its revelations are so awful that many find them
hard to accept. The book tells the dreadful story of prisoners of war who had
outlived the war but did not outlive the peace."
Martin Brech, a soldier in the U.S. Army and a prison guard for one of
America's death camps situated along the Rhine wrote afterwards, "I saw
thousands of men crowded together, wet and cold, sleeping in the mud without
shelter or blankets, eating grass because we fed them so little, dying . . .
it was made clear that our deliberate policy was not to feed them adequately .
. . . they were begging, getting sick, dying before us . . . gas would have
been more merciful than our slow killing fields."
THE ALLIED OCCUPATION OF ICELAND
A former Royal Navy serviceman R. Hull of
Newhaven writes: "I was posted to Iceland in 1944. During the year I spent on
the island, I found the people full of hatred towards the British. I was spat
at many times, and there was regular aggression from the locals." He went on
to say how when the war ended, 'We and the Merchant Navy lads decided get our
own back. We met inside the dockyard gates while the locals began gathering
across the road on a large green.
The fire brigade and the Royal Marines had been ordered to keep us apart, but
didn't lift a finger as we moved in to town, overturning cars, smashing shop
windows and fighting all over the place as we went. It was one big riot.
I don't know if it was reported back in the UK, but the best thing the
Icelanders did was to persuade the British Government to sign an agreement
that we would leave within three months at the end of the war."
N M Symonds describes the Icelandic VE publication Spegillinn being headed by
the words, 'Fridur! Fridur! Fridur I Europu' which translates in to 'Freedom,
Freedom, Freedom in Europe.'
This was a sarcastic reference to the Allied swan song – and their continued
occupation of their country. The caption was illustrated with a drawing of
drunken British sailors fighting and smashing their way through the streets."
Britain's illegal invasion of Iceland was dressed up as stepping in to assist
a threatened nation. When Germany had done precisely the same in respect of
Norway this was described as 'a rape'?

The armed forces of the Reich have been unfairly portrayed as brutal but as
Ralph F. Keeling of the Institute of American Economics reminds us that, "much
of what they have been led to believe was born of propaganda. The Germany Army
behaved itself very correctly toward the people of occupied territories whose
governments were signatories to The Hague and Geneva Conventions. The facts
are now well known, and are beyond dispute, despite the opposite picture
painted in the Press as part of the horrendous business of war."
Dr. A.J App Ph.D was equally honest: "In their behavior toward the women of
conquered territories, the German troops seem actually to have been the most
correct and decent in the whole history of warfare. It is a well known fact
that rape was virtually unheard of in the German Armed Forces and was in fact
punishable by death. As far as I am aware, there is not a single incident in
which the so-called anti-Christian Nazis, murdered a priest."
Hardly a Nazi sympathizer, William L. Shirer, the Jewish author of the since
discredited Rise and Fall of the Third Reich wrote of "how in the first
flush of German occupation women had fled Paris in fear of the Germans. 'It
seems the Parisians actually believed the Germans would rape the women and do
worse to the men. The ones who stayed are all the more amazed at the very
correct behavior of the troops"
Frederick C. Crawford, President of
Thompson Products in 'A Report From the War Front' wrote, "The Germans
tried to be careful in their dealings with the people. We were told that if a
citizen attended strictly to business and took no political or underground
action against the occupying army, he was treated with correctness. Wherever
Americans have been able to investigate for themselves, they have found that
however ruthless the Germans were with resisters and saboteurs, they were
uncommonly Christian and decent towards the women of the conquered."
From foot soldier to Field Marshall it was generally agreed that members of
Germany's armed forces complied with military codes. "Very few German officers
committed actions by their own free will during World War II of such a nature
that they could be regarded as war criminals," wrote Major General H. Bratt of
The Royal Swedish Army.
"During my period of Command in the Middle East and Mediterranean Theatres,
there were no breaches of International Maritime Law by the Axis Powers
reported to me. My own feelings on that matter were that those who had
committed War Crimes should have been dealt with by Military Courts after the
Armistice and that the Nuremberg Trials were staged as a political stunt." -
Field Marshall Lord Henry Maitland Wilson of Libya. Commander-in-Chief, Middle
East, 1943. Supreme Allied Commander, Mediterranean Theatre, 1944.
The Germany Navy (Kriegsmarine) emerged
with honor too: "I have never heard of any illegal or barbarous act committed
under his (Admiral Karl Doenitz) orders. I feel strongly that sailors,
soldiers and airmen whose only 'crime' is the effective professional direction
of the forces under their command, should not be liable to such trials,"
conceded General Sir William L.O Twiss the General Officer Commanding, British
Army in Burma. "I can vouch that during the five years of fighting of our
Fleet, mostly attached to the British Fleet, I never heard any complaint of
atrocities in submarine warfare," were the candid comments of Vice Admiral
Epaminondas P. Cawadias of the Royal Hellenic Navy.
U.S. Major General Robert W. Grow who was in command of an armored division
throughout the European campaign from Normandy to Saxony said, "In no instance
did I hear of personnel from our division receiving treatment other than
proper under the 'Rules of Land Warfare'. As far as the 6th Armored Division
was concerned in its 280 days of front line contact, there was no 'atrocity
problem'.... Frankly, I was aghast, as were many of my contemporaries, when we
learned of the proposed 'war crimes' trials and the fact that military
commanders were among the accused. I know of no general officer who approved
The post-war propagandists have had a
field day depicting German treatment of POWs as barbaric, but what are the
real facts? "All of the ex-prisoners-of-war seemed to me to be surprisingly
well fed. Faces showed the signs of years of captivity; there was no doubt
about that. But I did not see the signs of starvation that I expected after
reading the accounts of the way these people have been treated." These are the
words of American aviator hero Charles A. Lindbergh who fought through those
last battles for the German heartland.
Few people today realize that the International Red Cross was given free
movement around Germany's concentration camps, including Auschwitz - but was
denied access to post-war British camps.
Lieutenant Newton L. Marguiles, the U.S. Assistant Judge Advocate at Jefferson
Barracks said. "The Germans even in their greatest moments of despair obeyed
the Convention in most respects. True it is that there were front line
atrocities - passions run high up there - but they were incidents, not
practices, and maladministration of their American prison camps was very
The German use of slave labor has also been on the receiving end of distorted
allied propagandists, but what say those who should know? "It is true that the
Reich exacted forced labor from foreign workers, but it is also true that,
they were for the most part paid and fed well," wrote Ralph F. Keeling of the
American Institute of Economics. U.S. captain of U.S. industry Dr. James K.
Pollack backed Keeling up as did Max H. Forester, Chief of AMG's Coal and
Mining Division: "I think some of the persons found themselves better off than
at any time in their lives before. What did the Germans do to get efficient
production from forced labor that we were not able to do with Germans working
down the mines? They fed their help and fed them well."
COMMUNIST WAR CRIMINAL SAVED BY BRITAIN
On May 24, 1944, German forces mounted a major attack against the last redoubt
of Yugoslavia's monstrous Communist stooge, Josip Broz Tito. The British
Government favoured the red partisan instead of the anti-Communist General
Draza Mikhailovich who had been appointed Minister of War by the Yugoslav
Government in exile.
Had the German pincer-like movement succeeded the beautiful nation of
Yugoslavia may well have escaped the fate of Stalin's terror. Sadly for tens
of thousands of democratic Yugoslavians the British rescue party got to Tito
first and brought him to the idyllic island of Vis south of Split. At Vis was
a military base from which British and American aircraft flew sorties against
German troops fighting vainly to keep the Soviets out of Europe.
THE PORNOGRAPHY OF ALLIED PROPAGANDA
On Christmas Day (of all days 1943, an RAF plane drooped thousands of
Christmas cards for the German troops. The charming cover had a picture of a
church with worshippers walking through the snow, captioned with the first
line of the German hymn: Lieb Vaterland mag ruhig sein (Peace be with the
Inside the card was a taste of allied intentions. A crude picture of a white
woman submitting to crude sex with a coloured man and the message: Steckt fest
und streng der Fremde ein! (The foreigner strikes hard and strong). A nice
bunch aren't we? Now for the victors' reward they endure their own women so
treated in the democracies ghettos.
THE FUHRER'S YACHT TURNED INTO A BROTHEL
Bacchanalian orgies of the conquering barbarians knew few restraints. While
German civilians starved in their hundreds of thousands the allies enjoyed
bacchanalian nights with German girls who would do anything to survive and
feed their families. Even the German leader's yacht was used as a striptease
joint at which leering allied oafs stomped as girls gyrated.
SO TIRESOME, KILLING TEN MILLION PEOPLE
When Winston Churchill visited Josef Stalin, his Soviet henchman, at the
Kremlin in August 1942 he asked: Have the stresses of the war been as bad or
you personally as carrying through the policy of the collective farms?"
"Oh no", Stalin replied. "The collective farm policy was a terrible struggle.
Ten millions," he said, holding up his hands. "It was fearful. Four years it
lasted. It was absolutely necessary."
The Soviet dictator, Churchill's ally and drinking buddy was of course
referring to the casual mass elimination through starvation and deprivation of
10 MILLION PEOPLE through enforced famine, to which the Second World
War was secondary.
Talking of which your left-leaning teachers won't be telling you that in our
secondary education schools or anywhere else for that matter.
