To Woo if Galactor continues. Note the comment about 'gutless'. you have some personal vendetta? Nothing to do with the OP.

No, and I fail to see how you could possibly have read that from my words.

Try looking at them again. See how i referred to the notion of 'gutless = don't go to war' - this is not a historically competent position, yet it is asserted as fact.

Presumably, you'd be interested in maintaining a thread that focused on facts rather than fiction being asserted as fact?

Interesting that you equate gutless with not going to war and then harp on about assertions, fact and fiction.

There wouldn't have been a war if the Allies had reacted to the occupation of the Rhineland. Hitler had specifically ordered his troops to retreat if the allies enforced the treaty of Versailles. And they would have been powerful enough to nip the whole thing in the bud before Hitler turned his eyes east.

So yes, the French and British acted spinelessly.
