Re: Today the 6th June was D Day 74 years ago
Sadly, John, it's the way of the world, for example, how many of us criticize America, yet we would not have won either war without their help. Even after D-Day, the British made a good start, but stalled, luckily the Americans were there to push forward and took massive casualties, the battle of the Bulge etc. Yes the British helped to liberate Holland, but that is quite controversial too, and outside the scope of this board to discuss.
Look at France, they folded within days, and they were seen as having the world's most powerful army, they provoked Germany continually after 1918, the British helped to liberate them, and look how De Gaulle treated the British! Britain will never be great again, don't forgot when Churchill said we stood alone, it wasn't strictly true, Britain had an empire and many people non-British laid down their lives so that we could have a Great Britain, then certain modern-day politicians gave it all away, leading us to leave Europe.
