Axis, Mike, did you know we blew up a German U boat off the coast of Miami and the North Atlantic Gyre dragged the boat 200 miles up the coast to Cape Canaveral
Mike, I'm so hungry, I'm going to eat a chocolate chip cookie my mommy made me
I think I got sympathetic diabetes.
The Irish allowed German U Boats safe harbor as a response to their perpetual battle with the English...fucking Micks.
Ain't that some shit?! I watched a really interesting documentary on Churchill and how he destroyed the French fleet to prevent Hitler from taking their ships, even though the French promised to dismantle their own ships if Hitler came.
Did you know that we were attacked on home soil by the Japs at Fort Stevens in Oregon? They fired armaments and we didn't return fire.
they slept through the whole thing
it's a trick question. Mexico didn't become a country until after WWII.
Their allegiance shifted based on who offered the most churros.
Hitler wouldn't have taken them. The French would have given the ships to him wrapped in a big red bow.
I'm reading this book about the dead guy the British planted off the coast of Spain for a fishermen to find.
Operation Mincemeat was a successful British disinformation plan during World War II. As part of Operation Barclay, the widespread deception intended to cover the invasion of Italy from North Africa, Mincemeat helped to convince the German high command that the Allies planned to invade Greece and Sardinia in 1943 instead of Sicily, the actual objective. This was accomplished by persuading the Germans that they had, by accident, intercepted "top secret" documents giving details of Allied war plans. The documents were attached to a corpse deliberately left to wash up on a beach in Punta UmbrÃa in Spain. The operation started with the planting of false documents but the use of the Enigma machine helped double agents working for the Allies. In addition to technology, the use of double agents such as Juan Pujol Garcia was integral to Allied success in World War II.
The story was used as the plot in Duff Cooper's 1950 novel Operation Heartbreak, but revealed as a true story in the 1953 book The Man Who Never Was. A film of the same name was made in 1956.
