The Duke of Marlborough
The Duke of Marlborough
Churchill's father, Lord Randolph, was second son of the seventh Duke of Marlborough. His ancestor, the first Duke, had risen to fame and fortune during the reign of Queen Anne. Described by one Victorian historian as notoriously fond of money, he played the decisive role in the overthrow of James II. When William of Orange landed at Torbay on 3rd November 1688, the future Duke of Marlborough, John Churchill, marched against the invader and then coolly turned his army over to him.
His conduct can easily be explained by reference to the Jewish Encyclopaedia. This work declares that John Churchill, first Duke of Marlborough, was paid the then enormous sum of £6,000 a year by Solomon Medina in recognition of his many services. As the Jew's chosen candidate to replace James II on the throne, the Dutchman William of Orange was paid in the form of a 'loan' of two million Dutch guilders by the Jewish merchant, Antonio Lopez Suasso, to take him across the Channel. Although this has been kept out of the history books, it can be seen that Jewish money-changers were the real power behind the scenes controlling events. As pointed out, for valuable services rendered, William allowed the Jews to establish their misnamed 'Bank of England', which effectively gave them control over the country's affairs.
Thus was instituted the National Debt and the conversion of the English into tax and debt slaves.
There is no doubt that John Churchill was a very capable general but he was also extremely perfidious. For his great victories against the French at Blenheim, Ramillies and Malplaquet he was voted an enormous sum of money by Parliament, which enabled him to build the magnificent Blenheim Palace at Woodstock. He was a mercenary who sold himself to the highest bidder. After betraying James II he began to write letters to him declaring that the time would soon come when he could return to England. Arnold Foster, in his book A History of England, wrote:-
'For it is certain that on a later occasion he actually went so far as to inform the French of an intended English expedition against Brest, and the information which he gave helped to bring about the defeat of the English and caused the loss of hundreds of English lives. When Marlborough's treachery was discovered, he and his wife were disgraced and dismissed from Court.'
So John Churchill betrayed his King and country on several occasions for money when it suited him – even to the extent of causing the deaths of hundreds of his soldiers, the very men who had brought him fame, fortune and glory. The Jews did not pay him £6,000 a year for nothing.
On 21 June 1940 R. V. Jones briefed Churchill on Knickebein - a radio beam guidance system used by the Luftwaffe for bombing through cloud cover. In the resulting Battle of the Beams the British were able to 'bend the beams', influencing the drop point of German raids so that the targets were missed completely.
During a raid on Thames Haven, on 24 August, some German aircraft (one commanded by Rudolf Hallensleben who went on to win the Knights Cross for other actions) strayed over London and dropped bombs in the east and northeast parts of the city, Bethnal Green, Hackney, Islington, Tottenham, and Finchley. It is not known with certainty whether this was a navigational 'bungle' or a direct result of anti-Knickebein measures.
In any event, the incident prompted the British to mount a retaliatory raid on Berlin the next night with bombs falling in Kreuzberg and Wedding, causing 10 deaths.
here is a direct quote from Arthur "Bomber" Harris
"the aim of the Combined Bomber Offensive...should be unambiguously stated [as] the destruction of German cities, the killing of German workers, and the disruption of civilised life throughout Germany.It should be emphasized that the destruction of houses, public utilities, transport and lives, the creation of a refugee problem on an unprecedented scale, and the breakdown of morale both at home and at the battle fronts by fear of extended and intensified bombing, are accepted and intended aims of our bombing policy. They are not by-products of attempts to hit factories." Arthur Harris
Harris argued that the main objectives of night-time blanket bombing of urban areas was to undermine the morale of the civilian population (NOT TO DESTROY INDUSTRIAL TARGETS) and attacks were launched on Hamburg, Berlin, Cologne, Dresden and other German cities. This air campaign killed an estimated 600,000 civilians and destroyed or seriously damaged some six million homes. It was a highly dangerous strategy and during the war Bomber Command had 57,143 men killed.
Churchill, being an historian, became concerned about how these firestorms would be seen during the post-war period. On 28th March, 1945, Churchill wrote to Bomber Harris: “It seems to me that the moment has come when the question of bombing of German cities simply for the sake of increasing the terror, should be reviewed. Otherwise we shall come into control of an utterly ruined land. We shall not, for instance, be able to get housing material out of Germany for our own needs because some temporary provision would have to be made for the Germans themselves. I feel the need for more precise concentration upon military objectives, such as oil and communications behind the immediate battle-zone, rather than on mere acts of terror and wanton destruction.”
The following quote by Lieutenant Ernest Fisher, of the 101st Airborne Division and former Senior Historian of the United States Army is from the book "Other Losses":
"Starting in April 1945, the United States Army and the French Army casually annihilated about one million men, most of them in American camps." Ernst Fisher 101st airborn Div.
The term "Eisenhower's death camps" is obviously not an official title but the term given by former US guards and german prisoners, it is estimated that 1.7 million to germans died from mistreatment toward the end of the war and immediately after it by the revenge seeking victors of all of the allied nations. It is also estimated that upwards of 7 to 9 million total germans and eastern europeans died at the end of the war and in the first year after the war due to mistreatment by the allies and the russians.
On March 10, 1945 as World War II was coming to an end, General Eisenhower signed an order creating the status of Disarmed Enemy Forces for the German Prisoners of War who would soon be surrendering to the Americans. This order was a violation of the Geneva Convention because it allowed Eisenhower to disregard the rules for the treatment of Prisoners of War. It allowed him to starve the German POWs, deny them the right to send and receive letters, and to receive Red Cross packages and packages from German civilians. All of these rights were enjoyed by the prisoners in the Nazi POW camps and even in the notorious concentration camps. Eisenhower signed this order before he had even seen the horrors of the concentration camps, which so affected him.
On May 7, 1945, the German army surrendered to General Eisenhower, who refused to shake hands with the German General, as is customary.
The neutral country of Switzerland was removed as the Protecting Power for German prisoners, which was another violation of the Geneva Convention. General George S. Patton quickly released the prisoners who had surrendered to his Third Army, but General Eisenhower held his POWs until the end of 1946, forcing them to live on starvation rations. Red Cross packages sent to the German POW camps were returned. The POW camps had no barracks or tents.The German prisoners were forced to dig holes in the ground for shelter. Even though the American army had plenty of tents, the prisoners lived for months in their holes. When it rained, the holes collapsed and the prisoners died. there is an article written by a US soldier and guard at one camp that gives details on the treatment of Germans prisoners under the care of the US and French Armies
In October, 1944, at age eighteen, I was drafted into the U.S. army. Largely because of the "Battle of the Bulge," my training was cut short. In late March or early April, 1945, I was sent to guard a POW camp near Andernach along the Rhine. The men I guarded had no shelter and no blankets; many had no coats. They slept in the mud, wet and cold, with inadequate slit trenches for excrement. It was a cold, wet spring and their misery from exposure alone was evident. Even more shocking was to see the prisoners throwing grass and weeds into a tin can containing a thin soup. They told me they did this to help ease their hunger pains. Quickly, they grew emaciated. Dysentery raged, and soon they were sleeping in their own excrement, too weak and crowded to reach the slit trenches. Many were begging for food, sickening and dying before our eyes. We had ample food and supplies, but did nothing to help them, including no medical assistance. These prisoners, I found out, were mostly farmers and workingmen, as simple and ignorant as many of our own troops. As time went on, more of them lapsed into a zombie-like state of listlessness, while others tried to escape in a demented or suicidal fashion, running through open fields in broad daylight towards the Rhine to quench their thirst. They were mowed down. Hunger made German women more "available," but despite this, rape was prevalent and often accompanied by additional violence. In particular I remember an eighteen-year old woman who had the side of her faced smashed with a rifle butt and was then raped by two G.I.s. Even the French complained that the rapes, looting and drunken destructiveness on the part of our troops was excessive.
