To add to the list of forgotten mass murders.
Remember that Mr Churchill, the Winston variety. At the end of WWII thousands of Russians wished to remain for fear that too return would mean certain death.
Churchill and Co. sent them back without a thought just to please Stalin. Those men women and children returned to die and joined the long list of the legally murdered, along with gypsies, gays and the insane. Of course the politically correct excuses were made.
The same man, Churchill [remember him as First Sea Lord and the Dardanelles] wanted to let the army loose on British strikers.
Strikers working twelve hours a day who couldnít feed their families, while that gentleman smoked cigars that would have feed a family for a week or more.
History is written by the victors, it also helps when you have good PR.
Donít get me wrong we did need the arrogant SOB to win, also had the odd brainwave. A few good men like Brooke worked behind the scenes, stopping him losing the war with some of his madder ideas.
