German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck came straight to the point; “People never lie so much as after a hunt, during a war, or before an election.” People tend to trust their government. Few question spin that is spun by government, state compliant media and palace publishers keen to make a fast buck at the expense of their defeated foe’s reputation.
On several occasions the outcome of World War Two (1939 – 1945) hung in the balance. It does no harm to occasionally reflect on how things might have looked had things gone the way of Germany, Italy, Hungary, Romania and those sympathetic to the Workers Reich like Spain or Ireland. Imagine a world in which public awareness of Winston Churchill is as vague as for Field Marshal Kitchener or U.S. General ‘Black Jack’ Pershing. Imagine the name Josef Stalin being almost unknown to anyone except to scholars.
As a consequence of military victory over the still occupied German nation we now endure a world in which even an 18-year old German conscript is denigrated by the victor’s pen. The nurse girlfriends of two World War One (1914 – 1918) soldiers are dismissed as prostitutes (Lili Marlene). What chance then for major figures like T E Lawrence?
Britain’s legendary T. E. Lawrence was better known as Lawrence of Arabia. This gifted writer-revolutionary was revered as a British national hero for ousting the Turks from the soon to be British occupied Middle East. There was hardly a home in Britain without his portrait in the hallway or on the mantelpiece. The desert hero’s intention to form alliance with Oswald Mosley’s British Union of Fascists might certainly have averted war with Germany. Lawrence’s assassination by MI6 meant that Churchill and his pro-war clique got the war they were desperate for.
The reputation of ousted Norwegian Prime Minister Vidkun Quisling is an example of how a hero’s reputation can be re-written to destroy his standing. Today, the name Quisling is synonymous with cowardice and treachery. The real Vidkun Quisling, as revealed in Heroes Hang When Traitors Triumph by Michael Walsh is quite the opposite. Such was Quisling’s untiring heroism displayed during the Bolshevik starvation of Eastern Europe’s peasants; this friend of polar explorer Fridtjof Nansen was recognised and knighted Sir Vidkun Quisling by Britain and the reason why is a taboo topic.
When the armies of the Reich swept into Eastern Europe the troops were puzzled by the icons dedicated to Vidkun Quisling found in Russian and Ukrainian churches and peasants homes. Throughout Ukraine, Vidkun Quisling was regarded as a saint by millions of Ukrainians who suffered from the Bolshevik imposed famine. It is claimed that Vidkun Quisling and his heroic associates saved the lives of millions of Ukrainians. Such is the man that the West today vilifies as a treacherous coward.
After the war, Quisling, the only Norwegian government minister who refused to run when the Germans, to thwart a planned invasion by Britain, arrived in Norway. He stayed to help clean up the mess. The stolid Christian pastor was arrested and gunned down by a firing squad at dawn in a bleak prison’s exercise yard.
Irish-American William Joyce might easily have become Britain’s post war Prime Minister had unelected Winston Churchill’s government accepted Hitler’s peace terms. Like Vidkun Quisling, the reputation of the erudite Irish-American has since been dragged through the sewers of the Ministry of Truth’. Joyce was illegally hanged at HM Prison Wandsworth January 1946.
Romania’s student movement nationalist Cornelius Codreanu, along with his entire party leadership, was arrested and ritually strangled to death in the darkness of a Romanian forest. Had Britain and the U.S. formed an alliance to hold Europe with the beleaguered German armies in 1945, as Hitler had suggested, Cornelius Codreanu might be better known as President Cornelius Codreanu. Great plazas and shopping malls would in all likelihood be carrying his name.
In 1920 Norwegian writer, poet and philosopher Knut Hamsun was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Was it undeserved? Not according to iconic writer and war correspondent Ernest Hemingway: “Hamsun taught me to write.”
The roll-call of iconic giants of literature who worshipped Knut Hamsun includes Isaac Bashevis Singer who said; “The whole modern school of fiction in the twentieth century stems from Hamsun.” Franz Kafka, Maxim Gorky, Stefan Zweig, Henry Miller, Hermann Hesse and many others of similar renown were inspired by Knut Hamsun. Thomas Mann described Knut Hamsun as, “A descendant of Fyodor Dostoevsky and Friedrich Nietzsche.”
Knut Hamsun, then 86-years of age was tried, sent to a psychiatric home and all his assets including his home were confiscated by his fellow countrymen.
When it is realised that such figures, who could best be described as Europe’s greatest sons, have been maligned, one realises that the West is no better than its wartime ally, the dreaded Soviet Union. Thankfully, there is still to be discovered honest authors and publishers.
The compelling stories of these five great Europeans is brilliantly told by Mike Walsh in his popular title; Heroes Hang When Traitors Triumph.
