    Sixx I don't think we're at the point of "trying to kill each other", wait, are you talking in a societal sense or an internet tough guy perspective?

    By May 1940, Europe had been at war for nine months. Yet Britain and France, despite having declared war on Germany in September 1939 following Hitler’s attack on Poland, had seen little real fighting. This tense period of anticipation – which came to be known as the ‘Phoney War’ – met an abrupt end on 10 May 1940, when Germany launched an invasion of France and the Low Countries.

    The German plan of attack, codenamed Case Yellow, entailed an armoured offensive through the Ardennes Forest, which bypassed the strong French frontier defences of the Maginot Line. The advance would then threaten to encircle French and British divisions to the north, stationed on the Belgian frontier.

    The German offensive quickly overwhelmed Dutch forces, and the bombing of Rotterdam persuaded the Netherlands to surrender on 15 May. And although German forces in the north encountered strong French and Belgian resistance, the main German thrust through the Ardennes met with tremendous success. French second-rate divisions in the area were not prepared or equipped to deal with the major armoured thrust that developed (the forest and poor roads were thought to make this impossible), and were hammered by incessant attacks by German bombers.

    Just four days into the invasion German troops crossed the Meuse river, and had broken through the French lines. Attempts by the Allies to launch counterattacks by air and land either failed with heavy losses, or were thwarted by the pace of events. The British Expeditionary Force, along with the best units of the French army, were still in the north and had seen little fighting. But the German breakthrough to the south now forced them into rapid retreat to avoid being cut off with their backs to the sea. On 20 May German tanks reached Amiens and effectively trapped the British, who now made for Dunkirk and an unlikely attempt at evacuation to England.

    In these desperate circumstances, an evacuation plan known as ‘Operation Dynamo’ was hastily prepared in Dover by Vice Admiral Bertram Ramsay. His strategy included an appeal for all civilian vessels that could cross the Channel to help ferry the troops from the beaches to larger ships offshore, or to evacuate them entirely. Between 26 May and 4 June - a period during which Hitler halted the advance of his troops on Dunkirk - 200,000 British and 140,000 French troops were evacuated to England. Nine allied destroyers and approximately 200 civilian vessels were lost during the evacuation, and the RAF suffered severe casualties covering the operation from the air.

    On 5 June, the Germans swung southwards and French resistance finally collapsed, although not without heavy fighting. On 10 June, Italy opportunistically entered the war on Germany’s side. Four days later, the French capital fell, provoking the flight of the French Government to Bordeaux. The Government capitulated on 25 June, just seven weeks after the beginning of the invasion.

    The British 51st Highland Division - stationed in the Maginot Line when the fighting started – was forced to surrender at St Valéry. During the final evacuation of British troops from St Nazaire on the Atlantic coast, the troopship Lancastria was sunk with the loss of around 4,000 refugees, British troops and crew. Reluctant to take the risk that the French Navy would end up under German control, Churchill ordered the Royal Navy to present French warships at Mers-el-Kebir with an ultimatum to sail to Britain or to a neutral port for internment. When this offer was rejected on 3 July, British ships bombarded the fleet, killing 1,600 people. Although this operation did much to assure America of the strength of the British purpose, it and the evacuation of Dunkirk did immeasurable damage to Franco-British wartime relations.

    Britain and France say fuck you to Poland while Russian and German forces steamroll, rape and place a single bullet hole behind the ears of innocent men, women and children.

    Then the appeasing British and French think they will defend France together yet it appears they could have used the help of Poland to say the least right? To say French and British forces didn't get steamrolled would be how would you say revisionist I think.


    It is a good thing that America has that 2nd amendment so that the young "red necks" can learn to shoot from an early age isnt it? I would suggest that the 2nd amendment isnt a "curse" but was a blessing to the fleeing British and French when we finally stormed the beach at Normandy. Although dickhole, or wormhole or asshole whatever you call him thinks it was a curse.


    gazz you dislike Fox news and even your own Dailymail because it is just offering fear up to its audience right?

    I guess its too bad Poland didnt have a Fox news or Dailymail to watch back in the day to report on the likely event that their allies Britain and France would abandon them when war started.

    America should stand up for Israel our longtime allie if the shit hits the fan as we are not like the British or French from ww2. I would suggest that all of our allies should stand up for Israel in the middle east. The truth it can become a bigger war if the bad guys see that no one wants to put up a fight. This is about learning from our past and not repeating it.

    I dont care if your a socialist but in all honesty a socialist is closer to a communist than a capitalist is.

    Telling the truth is fun and history is impossible to change unless our superior minded wormhole can invent that time travel machine for us. Come on wormhole invent the time travel machine and we can go back and fix these mistakes of history.

    Yes Beagle, then Germany attacked USSR and got owned. 85% of its forces was lost there. Your point is? Germany steamroled over France? You put any country on earth in that position and result would be the same. Your 2nd amendment would have played just as much role as Dutch defense line of Amsterdam. You don't fight with rambo wanna bies with guns a war with brilliant German strategists and superb troops.

    Be careful what you wish for in regards to guns – be prepared for your country to join third world shit holes in gun crime and murder rates, and if you want to travel someplace, get a map and have someone familiar with the territory cross out whole sections of cities as “Shot Dead Zones” – the two British men shot dead in Sarasota, Florida should have done that.
    There you go wormhole this is a perfect example of American bashing...ok Mir this is what you were trying to say doesn't happen on a regular basis yet no this big genius does it on a regular basis. I rather enjoyed him crying to the mods though that was epic shit right there....LOL

    Awesome again gazz you just repeated the response from Mir that is very quick witted and exceptionally bright intellectually(sarcasm). Seriously do you just parrot everything you read? Because that is what I have told you you do many times before this time you remember? Please just try to put an original thought together at least every other comment or post. I would think better of you and I believe you have it in you to not plagiarize .... so you understand what I am saying is that you are stealing other peoples thoughts and ideas and using them as your own that is what plagiarize means....ok? Taking other peoples thoughts and ideas is not reflective of high intelligence is it gazz?

    Yes I simply responded to gass with wikipedia history of ww2 like he did. Had I typed it all in my own words it would have wasted my time as it would have been called bullshit like he did when I actually did it several comments before. So please just stop the madness.

    I know your ass hurts from being schooled again as you have been beat down so many times before. I honestly dont get the same enjoyment out of it like I use to as its so very easy its not even entertaining me much now.

    Ok now go read up on your history some more like you thought you would tell me to do you dozy.

    Eagle, do you know what this symbol means " <<< its a quotation mark ffs, I was quoting him so I could respond , admittedly I failed and didn't end the quote but its still obvious to someone not having an argument with themselves.


    It's very clear to everyone tho only reason you think you "school" people is clearly because you have some sort of fictitious argument with a version of the person in which you make up their argument in your head. its very strange and you have demonstrated this clearly . Now your probably going to respond to me now thinking I've been singing the praises of communism or some shit.
