We talked about England. I asked him bluntly:
“Why on earth didn’t you finish off the British
at Dunkirk? Everyone knew you could have wiped
them out.” He answered: “Yes, I withheld
my troops and let the British escape back
to England. The humiliation of such
a defeat would have made it difficult to
try for peace with them afterwards.”

the hand of the formidable pro-peace forces in Britain. And indeed,
after Dunkirk, the

the war. Ultimately, the warmongers

The greatest battle in world history has thereby ended.

Dunkirk and After
From Captain Archibald Maule Ramsay's book: THE NAMELESS WAR
Captain Liddell Hart, the eminent military critic,
wrote a book on the military events of
1939-45, which was published in 1948, and entitled The Other Side of
Chapter 10 -- which deals with the German invasion of France
down to and including
Dunkirk -- bears the somewhat startling title, "How Hitler beat France and saved
The reading of the chapter itself will astound all propaganda-blinded people, even
more than the title: for the author therein proves that not only did Hitler save this
country; but that this was not
the result of some unforeseen factor, or indecision, or
folly, but was of set purpose, based on his long enunciated
and faithfully maintained
details of how Hitler peremptorily halted the Panzer Corps on the 22nd
May, and kept them inactive for the vital
few days, till, in fact, the British troops had got
away from Dunkirk, Captain Liddell Hart quotes Hitler's
telegram to Von Kleist:
"The armoured divisions
are to remain at medium artillery range from Dunkirk.
Permission is only granted for reconnaissance and protective movements."
Von Kleist decided to ignore the order, the author tells us. To quote him again:
"Then came a more emphatic order, that I was to withdraw behind the canal.
tanks were kept halted there for three days."
In the following words the author reports a conversation which took place on May 24th
days later) between Herr Hitler and Marshal Von Runstedt, and two key men
of his staff:
"He then astonished us by speaking with admiration of the British Empire,
necessity for its existence, and of the civilisation that Britain had brought into the
He compared the British Empire with the Catholic Church -- saying they were
both essential elements of stability in the world. He said that all he wanted from
Britain was that she should
acknowledge Germany's position on the continent.
The return of Germany's lost colonies would be desirable, but
not essential, and
he would even offer to support Britain with troops, if she should be involved in
He concluded by saying that his
aim was to make peace with Britain, on a basis
that she would regard compatible with her honour to accept."
Captain Liddell Hart comments on the above as follows:
"If the British Army had been captured at Dunkirk, the British people
felt that their honour had suffered a stain, which they must wipe out. By letting it
Hitler hoped to conciliate them. This conviction of Hitler's deeper motive
was confirmed by his strangely dilatory
attitude over the subsequent plans for the
invasion of England."
"He showed little interest in the plans," Blumentritt said, "and made no effort to
speed up the preparation. That was utterly different to his usual behaviour.
Before the invasion of Poland,
of France, and later of Russia, he repeatedly
spurred them on; but on this occasion he sat back."
The author continues:
the account of his conversation at Charleville, and subsequent holding
back, comes from a section of the Generals,
who had long distrusted Hitler's
policy, that makes their testimony all the more notable."
And later he goes on to say:
their account of Hitler's thoughts about England at the decisive
hour before Dunkirk, fits in with much that

Kampf; and it is remarkable how closely he followed his own Bible in other
who has read Mein Kampf will immediately appreciate the accuracy of the
above statement. It is indeed if anything
an understatement. Throughout that

one, a detailed delineation and denunciation of the Jewish Capitalist-Revolutionary
other, admiration for and eagerness for friendship with Britain and the
It is a pity, indeed, that so few persons in this island have read this book for
and it is a tragedy that they have instead swallowed wholesale, the
unscrupulous distortions and untrue propaganda
on the subject, served up to them by
Jewish publicity machinery, operating through our press and radio.
Let these people but try and obtain a copy of that book; and when they find they
cannot, let them reflect, that if indeed its contents confirmed the lies that they
have been told concerning
it and its author, the powers behind our publicity
would ensure that everyone should be able to secure a copy
at the cheapest
In any event, I would urge
my countrymen to ponder most earnestly the following facts.
The Jew Karl Marx laid it down, that Bolshevism could
never really succeed till
the British Empire had been utterly destroyed.
Hitler laid it down, that the British Empire was an essential element of stability in the
world; and even
declared himself ready to defend it with troops, if it should be involved
in difficulties anywhere.
By unscrupulous propaganda on an unprecedented scale this country was led into
those who wished to be her friends, and offered their lives to defend her;
and exalting those, who proclaimed
that her destruction was a necessary preliminary
to the success of their ideology, forfeiting her Empire and
her economic independence
in the process.
When you consider the Jewish directed psychopathic barbarity of the subsequent
English destruction of Germany, hindsight proves that it would have been
reasonable and prudent had Hitler killed and/or captured every British soldier
trapped on the beaches of Dunkirk.
