Hi Guys, There was no plan for Spain to attack Gibraltar. German forces were to do that. Spanish forces were to play a passive covering role. Franco did not enter the war because his country had been seriously damaged by the civil war and was exhausted. It was heavily reliant on imports of food fro...

Any guess as to what vessel Hitler is on?

That is one of the pocket battleships in the background. Most likely pre-war.

Just because you have the moderators badge again doesn't mean you trump there DCC. :D You are correct about the proximatey fuze - and that no battleship by itself could withstand the American air armada. But I'd dare to put an Iowa up against Yamato. Yamato may win, but its not a given. Yamato has t...

Hi Max, Interesting if true, but it isn't, is it? If I remember rightly, the Dutch mobilised some ten divisions against the initial German invasion. Where are the ten+ divisions of Dutchmen the Germans must have raised to make your proposition true? They couldn't even keep one full strength divisio...

Re: But did she do it?

But did she fulfill that "duty"? And to the extent alleged? We have extremist D.A.'s here in NYS who could get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, as the saying goes. So I'm a bit distrustful. judicial-inc.biz is one of the worst and most inaccurate of revisionist sites. They blantly lie outrigh...

Remember what Irma Grese said right after the trial?

"It was our duty to exterminate anti-social elements, so that
Germany's future would be assured."

Yeah ... she was innocent. :?

Somehow I can't picture myself Stalin allowing Soviet citizens leaving the country and seeing the "capitalist-imperialist-pig-dog west" One of the principle points of lend lease entrance to the Soviet...
