You see, on this forum it's a sport to make fun of French fighting prowress, Italian Tanks, British tea drinking and Russian Bear Cavalry. All in good fun and with no offence taken by either side.Guys
Admittedly, despite his name Kurt seems to be Catalan based but you do realise what comments like this do to stereotypes about Germans.
Wouldn't it be better, especially in a fairly public forum to keep national insults out of it? I know there were a lot of smilies there but why do it in the 1st place?
Rule of cool I'm afraid. oIn terms of the two chapters that came up while I was on hols
a) Why would Canaris and Oster still be warning German uniforms heading into this meeting. If we want to keep their presence as secret as possibly then get them into civvies ASAP. I agree that in reality Ian would never expose the secret of Ultra like that. Bound to be gossip amongst the defectors and that could easily spread.
No tibetian front. They are indeed hit by a massive Soviet Invasion, what the Chinese did there was not trying to turn back an Invasion, it was to secure advantagous defensive positions at a front that was pretty much non-existent until the Soviets attacked. It's just that the British where just that small bit faster in acting.b) On the Tibetan front, given their suddenly been hit by a massive Soviet invasion why are the Japanese/Chinese trying to throw out the small British intrusion into Tibet? Or is it a local initiative?
