Thanks for the correction redcoat ,wasn't Halifax more open to negotiating with Hitler ?
Yes, he was the one suggesting that they should consider asking Germany through Italy for prospective peace terms during the cabinet meetings at the end of May 1940.
Fortunately, when he realised he was the lone voice urging this he fell into line with the rest of the cabinet agreeing not to seek any peace terms from the German's and continue with the war.

Ridiculous. Inaccurate. Nonsensical. Not a good post.
Factual, especially if you're not convinced by the boilerplate moron propaganda mass produced for mental midgets during the war. Anyone who actually believes what a government school tells them should be castrated to prevent the spread of mental retardation.

On the other hand perhaps he just reads books and studies history.

It seems that there are posters who peddle propaganda but the poster you quote is not one of them. Yourself well..............

Yes. Imagine trying to Europe from Norfolk, Virginia. A more or less intact Great Britain was an unparalleled advantage, so the successful defense of Great Britain by the British was of inestimable value..
Not to mention the small matter of the RAF and RN --- plus several million soldiers--- but some posters insist they are irrelevant because they are not American.

No facts there, just hyperbole

Perhaps you'd like to explain how Churchill, who wasn't Prime Minister, or had much if any influence in government was "responsible for war"
Chaimberlain's cabinet declared war, not Churchill
