Part I, part II Never during this time did Great Britain agree to peace negotiations. She steadily continued her shelling of German cities. She showed her resolve to fight until the end.

Episode 16. Who signed death sentence for France in 1940? (II)

Episode 16. Who signed death sentence for France in 1940? (I)

WWII lend-lease: was the US aid that helpful? (II)

Part I Nonlethal lend-lease aid Besides weapons, other supplies were also provided under lend-lease. And those figures are absolutely indisputable indeed.
