You disagree? Really now? Am I going to hear the same old cowardly slave refrain of: "durrr Hitler couldn't have won the war because of durrrr logistics....durrrrr oil refinery.....durrrrrr transport.....durrr the desert durrrrrrr" oh really now? Well Max Hastings disagrees with you. Max graduated with honors from Oxford. Where'd YOU go to school??? In 2012 Mas was awarded the prestigious Pritzker Military Library Literature Award, a lifetime achievement award for military writing, which includes an honorarium, citation and medallion, sponsored by the Chicago-based Tawani Foundation. Hastings is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, and the Royal Historical Society. What prestigious awards for military writing have YOU received? Which prestigious historical and literary societies do YOU belong to??? hmmmm???
Bevin Alexander served as an officer during the Korean War. What MAJOR international conflict did YOU serve as an officer in?? Bevin has served as a consultant and adviser to several groups due to his military expertise, including work for the prestigious Rand Corporation, work as a consultant for military simulations instituted by the United States Army Training and Doctrine Command. What have YOU ever consulted the Rand Corporation on?! Has the US Army ever ASKED YOU TO PERSONALLY SERVE as a consultant/adviser for it??? hmmmm????
Lt. General Simon Mayall attended Oxford. What school did YOU attend? Mayall commanded troops in both the Persian Gulf War and Kosovo? In which international conflicts have YOU ever commanded troops? Mayall rose to the rank of Lt. General in her Majesty's Royal Army. Which rank have YOU risen to in her Majesty's Royal Army? Maywall as awarded the honour of being declared a "Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire." Have YOU ever received this prestigious honour from her Majesty's Royal Army? hmmmmmmm...?????
So enough with all of this slave defeatist anti-Nazi drivel: "DURR there is NO way HItler could have won World War II by pursuing a Mediterranean strategy....durrrrrr what about the oil refineries...durrr and the OMG INSURMOUNTABLE logistical issues...and and and...they didn't even know about all of the oil in Libya....and and and....durrrr." ANYONE with AT LEAST half an operational brain realizes that HItler could have EASILY WON THIS CONFLICT if he had pursued a Mediterranean strategy. The three men cited above all agree with me on that point. YOU think you KNOW BETTER THAN THEY DO?! durrrr....why because you read a lot of books?!! durrrrr..watched a lot of documentaries....durrrrr.....played axis and allies a ot?!! durrrr.....by disagreeing with them, chaps, you are only exposing your ignorance and arrogance.
