Unique archival photographs of Soviet commanders during a meeting with the Allies are published today on the website of the Russian Ministry of Defense in the section ‘Meeting on the Elbe: Unknown Pages’, the press service of the military department.
Few people realise, perhaps because they have never been told, is that Hitler’s Germany never, before or during World War II, declared war on Britain or France or their overseas territories. On September 3, 1939 Britain and France disappointed their citizens by declaring war on Germany.
The Daily Mail’s travel section once invited readers to identify the world’s most beautiful country. The surprising but obvious choice was Latvia. The nation dubbed ‘The Canada of Europe’ recovered its independence from the Soviet Bloc in August 1991. The Latvians right to take care of their affairs ended when their small but beautiful nation was coerced into joining the European Union Bloc in 2004.
A DIFFICULT AND PAINFUL DEATH: On 1 March 1953, Stalin’s staff found him semi-conscious on the bedroom floor of his Volynskoe dacha. He had suffered a cerebral haemorrhage. He was moved onto a couch and remained there for three days. He was hand-fed using a spoon, given various medicines and injections, and leeches were applied to him.
There is a very interesting book written by a Mexican journalist called Salvador Borrego about WWII, whose title would translate: World Defeat (Derrota Mundial). In it, he explains how the Americans and the British won a war against themselves.
On February 1 1945, Poland’s General Anders reproached Winston Churchill for not adhering to the English guarantees (to defend Poland’s independence). He asked the unelected British Prime Minister. ‘What shall we say to our soldiers? Soviet Russia is now confiscating half of our territory and wants the remaining part of Poland to be managed according to her own fashion. We know from experience where that leads.’
The Kremlin during the Second World War acknowledged Charles de Gaulle as the leader of the government in exile of Free France because he had helped torpedo Winston Churchill’s plan for the Western allies to liberate Central Europe, according to French historian and former head of Le Figaro Magazine Henri-Christian Giraud in his book ‘De Gaulle and the Communists’.
The European Tragedy is described as The War of the Dictators. It was, of the four main protagonists the German leader alone was democratically elected. Neither Winston Churchill nor Josef Stalin was ever elected to lead their countries. The duplicitous U.S President Franklin D. Roosevelt was narrowly elected on what was later proven to be a lie.
Very few people know the detail of Joseph Stalin’s notorious Torch-Man Order. As a consequence people little realise that images depicting German atrocities are falsified. Filmed atrocities were the responsibility not of the Reich, but of England and America’s Soviet allies. There can be no excuse for using images of one’s own crimes to stigmatise one’s enemy. To do so to justify war is a war crime. The banality of evil is that the Torch-Man Order is censored in the West and disguised behind the bland index Order Number #0428.
