give me a call. :)
What's your number?
lol, Ditto.... :)
isthatu, I remeber your post about historians and that they shuld be objective, etc... I'm afraid that you lost your objectivness somewhere in this topic
Well,as far as Im concerned Im still staying objective, It just happens to be the country I live in Im "defending" so to speak,if the topic had been " France declares war for Poland" instead of Britain I rather imagine my arguments would be pretty similar,and answers to the charges levelled by overly patriotic Poles would be about the same. Ie,the whole world was falling apart,no one in 1939 could have forseen the situation in europe as it was to be in 1945 so most arguments are moot,especially the old hoary chestnut of " britain didnt keep its promisises..." ,plain and simply,it did,it was one of the nations,that part of an alliance, crushed Nazi Germany,thereby freeing (not just Poland,but the rest of) Europe from nazi oppresion. There was absoloutly nothing in GBs decleration of war in 1939 about then going on and freeing anyone from the USSR.
Poland was there for you after they had to fight alone. Can you say the same? I don't think so. In the end did you have a country? Poland did not. Since you love my use of historical links.
Eh? This is wrong in so many ways. They fought alone,for 28 or so days,then capitulated,as has been done to death,what could have been done in that short space of time...........? And sorry to disappoint you but,as far as the world was concerned Poland did exist as a country after the war,it didnt just drop off the face of the earth it had a government and everything...........
I am saying they did not declare war to help Poland.
Well why the buggery else did they do it? For a spot of caravaning,a nice holiday around the med?Or maybe as a form of population control,you know,declare war because Poland was invaded just so we could have the pleasure of the lufftwaffe bombing our towns and cities for the next 5 years???????
Im sorry,you are so wrong.Britain would have been far better siting on the sidelines.Hitler loved the English,had no desire for war with Britain and would have been quite happy leaving us(and probably france) out of his euro tour,as it was peace feelers were being sent out by abwher and probably even Hess right untill late 1941 as Germany didnt want to fight GB, not coz we were big n 'ard,simply our Empire was a more valuable trading partner to him than anything he could have gained with defeating britain,remember,if,and this is highly unlikely as he never planned for it,hitler had conquered GB our Govt would have carried on from Canada so he knew he was onto a loser. So, and ONE LAST TIME
Britain declared war because hitler didnt pull out of Poland, no other reason,so stop whining about "truth " this and " betrayl" that,it simply isnt becoming.........
