Picked this up off the SimHq forum.

It’s the end narrative for the Fliegerasse! Helmut Wick vs. J. C. Dundas campaign.

Churchill himself said it very clearly in the summer 1940:
Those who think, we fight this war to fight nazism, are naive. Our intention is to smash germanys economic power.

Wars are never fought for altruistic motives. They always have a egoistic intent. The aim is power and territories, never the people.

None of the nations fighting in WWII is innocent. Not even the victors.

And so was the “Battle of Britain” also not what it was stylized for. For Great Britain it wasn’t the fight to survive, and for Germany it wasn’t the fight for the invasion of England.
Churchill wanted to fight this war for his own personal power to the bitter end, at all costs. And it did cost! It did cost Great-Britain it’s empire. He stood as loosing victor, who did gain his primary war goal, the destruction of Germany, but ruined the homeland entrusted to him. Great-Britain never recovered from this ruin.
In 1939 it was possible to start the war, but not to stop it. He only could take the bull by its horns, in a conflict, lost before it started. And the same was with the Battle of Britain. Continious changing aims of the battle, no strategic concept and a Luftwaffe not suited for this kind of war were the largest obstacles. But the truly biggest obstacle was, that there was no plan for the continuation of the war. So this battle was a improvisation, which was by propagandistic means blown up to a possible decisive battle.
The battle was decided, as soviet troops at 28.06.1940 invaded Romania and occupied large parts of it. From this day on the german high command knew, that the direction of the war would change, if they wanted to survive. Since without the romanian oil the war against England couldn’t be fought also. 150 km divided from this day on G.K. Schukow from the decision in favour of the Soviet-union. But he overlooked the chance.
The german chief of staff Franz Halder, as Hitler himself, saw the danger and acted. All planning for a possible invasion of England were waste paper and obsolete with that.

Concluding it is to ascertain, that for England in 1940 was no danger of a invasion. Churchill wanted to get the USA into his boat, and that he did get. Because the USA supported Great-Britain after the Battle of Britain with enormous quantities of weapons wares, planes and ships.

Turns out Britain and Churchill in particular were the aggressors and Hitler had no choice but to invade Russia.

Shocked…

Seems like someone needs a history lesson. Churchill wasn’t even in power in 1939…

Perhaps they’ve been taken lessons from Hollywood. :rolleyes:

I don’t know Keets, I don’t even think the Kool Aid drinkers in Hollywood would have the balls to put crap like this out, as it is they walk a fine line with the American public. :smiley:

Who’s the loonie? :crazy:

Soviet invading Romania, yeah, big surprise for Hitler:

And who is he talking about here, Churchill or Hitler?

The loon talks about Churchill in the paragraphs before, but he wasn’t making the decisions in 1939, and it was actually a quite narrow decision to make him the PM a year later as far as I have read. In the paragraphs after he seems to be talking about Hitler, but he sure as hell had all the opportunities NOT to start the war, but he wanted it (perhaps not against UK/France), so he attacked Poland…

Thank you Mikke for the historic citations and facts.

I think we need to scrutenize two things here:

Who is this Wick and his book Fliegerasse and where do the citations (quotes) of Churchill come from.

What we can read in the first post of this thread seems to me a typical example of

distorting, false interpreting, and false combining and differentiation of historical facts with the aim to relative actual

happenings for one’s own purpose. From which political corner could such an “historical view”, better say ignorance, come from?

I don’t want to go to far here, but I know, that the Poles had a garanty of help by the French and British in case of a German assault.

We all know what Nazi Germany wanted, that doesn’t need to be questioned here.

It had to be stopped.

The intentions of Nazi Germany, its brutality, its menace for the free world led to the Battle of Britain.

Did such an impact on the worlds freedom would also have influence on the British Empire?

Was the British Empire still as healthy as it was in the 19th century?

Was it also in great danger because of the Japanese advances in the far East?

Was it also in different state, because of the wish of colonies to be independent (India)…?

What I want to say here is that the decay of the British Empire cannot be seperated from the second World War on the 1 hand

on the other hand it needs to be explained as well on different facts as well.

And I don’t think, that it is Churchills fault and not Chamberlains fault (that is nonsense), but the reasons for that

are more difficult and complex.

Churchill wanted to fight this war for his own personal power to the bitter end, at all costs. And it did cost! It did cost Great-Britain it’s empire. He stood as loosing victor, who did gain his primary war goal, the destruction of Germany, but ruined the homeland entrusted to him. Great-Britain never recovered from this ruin.

Yes, quite…:crazy:

Who is this Wick and his book Fliegerasse and where do the citations (quotes) of Churchill come from.

Deasastersoft have released a Campaign for Cliffs of Dover. They are a German company and the quote is from the epilogue when the campaign has run it’s last mission.

What is unacceptable is the dumbing down of the truth. Making excuses for a ruthless dictator and his intentions.

Bit more detail in the thread in SimHq: http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/3727303/Re_Fliegerasse_Helmut_Wick_vs_#Post3727303

I am German myself. The moment I heard there would be an add-on for COD I wanted to buy it. So I did some research. I found out that Thomas Voss posts on a website, which is called “political incorrect”. There they promote “free Speech”, which means uttering right wing rhetorics. For example he says that Germany needed to attack the Soviet Union because they prepared for the attack themselves which is laughable. They only want to find ways to excuse the deeds of Nazi Germany. He also promotes the opposition against immigration and if you read his posts you realize quickly that he is opposed to the current democratic System of Germany. Also other members of desastersoft promote Anti-Americanism which is quite common in the far right circles.

I won’t be buying their campaigns no matter how good they are.
