Victors’ propaganda disseminated by palace publishers and on-message media has created the illusion that Poland being far weaker than Hitler’s Reich was the vulnerable prey for ‘the Hitler hyena’. The same propaganda was spread after the Reich’s pre-emptive strike on Stalin’s despotic regime which had as is now known an army of 4.6 million poised to overwhelm Europe before the German pre-emptive strike.
The Audacity of Peter Tordenskjold: The Naval Captain Who Asked His Enemy For Ammo in The Middle of a Battle
On November 12, 1720 Peter Tordenskjold died in a sword duel. It will not sound familiar to most people, but he was one of the great national heroes of Denmark and Norway—countries that were once united, a daring sailor who would be the equivalent of what Nelson is to the British, Ruyter to the Dutch, Jones to the Americans or Bazán to the Spanish. Remembered in several popular songs and honored with several statues, streets, books, films and even a festival, a corvette of the Danish navy and a ship of the Norwegian navy are named after him. He is also cited in the Danish royal anthem.
The casket of the Unknown Warrior was made of the oak timbers of trees from Hampton Court Palace.

Popularly known as the Desert Fox, the career serviceman served as field marshal in the Wehrmacht (Defense Force) of the Third Reich during World War II, as well as earlier serving in the Reichswehr of the Weimar Republic, and the army of Imperial Germany (1871 ~ 1918).
The mother of one of the 13 US servicemen who were killed in Thursday’s terrorist attack at the Kabul airport has called into a radio show to denounce President Joe Biden as a ‘feckless, dementia-ridden piece of crap.’
Overwhelmed by refugees fleeing NATO’s conflicts in North Africa, Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan the patience and tolerance of Europeans have passed the breaking point.
If you get to Spain this summer, watch your tongue. A careless word construed as sympathetic to General Francisco Franco, who despite Washington DC sanctions successfully ruled Spain from his victory in the country’s civil war (1936-9) until his death in 1975 could land you with a fine.
Rhodesian-born Lieutenant-Colonel Ron Reid Daly joined the army in 1951 when he volunteered to fight, with C (Rhodesia) Squadron of the British SAS, against communist rebels in Malaya.
Only now can the story break through the media’s censorhip of real history: “The sacking of Germany after her unconditional surrender will go down in history as one of the most monstrous acts of modern times. Its excess beggars description and its magnitude defy condemnation.” ~ Ralph F. Keeling, Gruesome Harvest; 1947. The Institute of American Economics.
In addition to the 1922 illegal annexation of West Prussia, Silesia and Poznan, and Danzig blockade, Poland, until the outbreak of war, was guilty of repeated anti-German pogroms, provocations, pillage and border violations. Germany’s response to Poland’s attacks on their frontiers on September 1939 was known as the Defensive War in Germany.
