    all the theories are correct in the own context,but with the RAF & ROYAL NAVY intact he stood no chance and I think he knew it.the one in favour of heavy bombers was General Wever,killed in a plane crash before the war.

    I aways have the feeling that the invasion of Britain was half- hearted and Hiltler still thought he could sue for peace. Also he had a huge respect for his 'Germanic brother nation' as he put it

    I think there is some merit what you have said and equally there was still a faction within the British establishment that was also keen to sue for peace with Germany.

    For example The Rt. Hon. Lord George Ambrose Lloyd of Dolobran, who was to become minister in Churchill's war cabinet , wrote a pamphlet entitled 'The British Case', which totally rejected the notion of a war against Fascism and of course his was not a lone voice in 1940. The forward to the pamphlet I believe was written by Lord Halifax who was a prominent in the Appeasement movement and the Conservative Party's preferred choice to be Prime Minister of Britain replacing Chamberlain.

    Rudolf Hess thought a peace accord between Britain and Germany was still possible when set off to meet with Lord Hamilton in Scotland on 10th May, 1941.

    Back the Brits up against the wall and you are very likely to get your nose bent as was the case.

    ...with the help of the Poles and No. 303 Polish Squadron in particular, the Czechoslovaks and of course the other BoB pilots & aircrews from Belgium, Canada, France, Ireland, Jamaica, Newfoundland, New Zealand, Rhodesia, South Africa and the United States lending their backs to that British wall

    Speaking of valiant Polish pilots; AFAIK General Tadeusz Sawicz died on the October 19. 1911 in Canada.

    The last of the Polish pilots from The Battle of Britain. R.I.P.
