He did the same for Roosevelt who had died some days earlier so he felt obliged to do the same for the Chancellor of Germany.

As for defeating Hitler it was something well beyond the powers of the UK to do alone. Their contribution to final victory while great was dwarfed by that of Russia & the USA.
Strange as it may seem, the Dieppe Raid of 1942 may have been the most important thing the British did in the whole war. German intelligence detected the naval build-up for Dieppe, and it was assumed a large naval landing would take place. Hitler was worried and ordered some of his best panzer divisions taken from Russia to France. These divisions remained in France until winter 1942. Had they remained in Russia they might have prevented 6th army from being surrounded. By the time they went back to Russia it was too late.

After their thrill at the Dunkirk debacle, Great Britain's rollicking early victories in the air, in the Atlantic, and in North Africa still rankle with the Irish Nationalist Socialist cucks.

They were gutted that Hitler lost. Gutted.

These ridiculous beer-swilling, rosary-bead clutching cucks embraced de Valera's stupid post-war whinge as some kind of great victory.

One cannot be neutral between good and evil. Real Irishmen and women are ashamed of Ireland's WW2 neutrality.

Poor old Volatire comes from a family that made its living servicing the British occupation forces in Ireland. After centuries of being raped, they came to learn to value of submission.

Volatire would have loved a few hundred thousand Irishmen to have been slaughtered again defending the English Crown in the 1940s. Of course, his family wouldn't have been anywhere near the front line. They would have been waving their Union Jacks from the sideline - as they were during WW1.

We Irish bullshit about both world wars - and how 'neutral' and 'anti war' we should or could have been.

Then there's an account of an Irish hero who bravely did incredible things fighting for the British - and we are
creaming ourselves and can't get enough of it!!!

Don't forget to tune into 'Spitfire Paddy'...... :D
