    What General Weygand has called The Battle of France is over. The battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilisation. Upon it depends our own British life and the long continuity of our institutions and our Empire. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us. Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of a perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, "This was their finest hour".
    — Winston Churchill, June 18, 1940

    Thomas Jefferson stopped the tradition of bowing and changed it to hand shaking at the White House.

    Too much drama here, and not enough history.

    The krauts were reluctant to attack England and called it off so they could get fucked up in Russia.

    If they wanted the UK it was theirs to be had in 1940. But they had bigger, much bigger plans.

    Also, Hitler admired the British. He really didn't want to fight them. Unlike the lice-ridden French.

    Perhaps, we'll never know for sure. Hitler certainly had plans to invade England. Goering said he only needed a few days to establish air supremacy, which turned out to be bullshit. Attacking England from the sea w/o owning the skies above was more risk than Hitler was willing to take.
