I confess I've never encountered Col. Pyne until reading this post. I thank him for his service but this is crackpot garbage "history".

Respect for the fighting spirit of Russian forces which practically single-handedly fought the Nazis from June 1940 to June 1944 and Chinese soldiers who fought our guys doggedly in Korea equates a critic of your outlandish opinions as a Communist apologist ? SMH

Bizarre point of view. “Hitler honored all of his agreements…” Absolute nonsense. I have read Churchill’s history of WWII. Based upon same, I will make one concession to this unique view of history: Churchill did defend Chamberlain’s action. He justified the surrender to Hitler’s demands based upon the British public’s abhorrence of a repeat of the slaughter occasioned by WWI. Britons wished to try anything to avoid war. Obviously - except to this writer - giving in to tyrants only encourages them to seek more and more.

The Great Appeaser is neither Churchill or Chamberlain but Mr. Pyne himself. Read some of Mr. Pyne's commentary and analysis of the war in Ukraine if you want to see an appeaser of Putin in action.

yes this is not worth reading. Anyone who gave stock to anything Hitler was peddling from 1938 and on is clearly off their rocker. The reason why Churchill refused any "peace" offers was because Hitler could not be trusted. What do you think - after he broke his word 200 times, the 201 he would keep it?

Look, everyone is entitled to their own beliefs, but anyone who gives you a second of thought or support likely is not someone anyone should take serious. no amount of lipstick will make this pig attractive.

The fallacy that Hitler did not want war with the west AND offered peace is undone by his plans for war with the west, the fact he never kept his agreements, AND his hatred for France...

Such a poorly presented article...

This Hitler apologist is a lunatic. Hitler had a pact with the USSR and they carved up Poland, and then later attacked the USSR. What earthly reason is there to believe that Hitler could’ve been trusted with any agreement he would have made for similar expedience with the West?

Crazy. Shameful. Revisionist. Tosh.
