|17 Although they were actually lying again,
18 aIn a big way.
19 When the Germans decided that the next country which really had always belonged to them was Poland,
20 And the Poles objected,
21 Churchill got upset,
22 And so did Neville Chamberlain,
23 bWhich didn't help Poland,
24 But convinced the Brits that maybe being above it all didn't work on Germans.
25 cAnd so they asked Winston Churchill to help them remember how to do things the hard way,
26 For a while.
CHAPTER 521 Churchill did the best he could, using all the old Brit methods that had always worked so well in the past.
2 He sent a small army to Europe to fight the Germans in France,
3 Against great odds,
4 dMeaning with the help of the French,
5 eBut the Germans won,
6 fIn a big way,
7 And the Brits had to rescue their army from Dunkirk the hard way,
8 gWhich is to say, one at a time in small boats.
9 hBy this time, the Germans had remembered that all of Europe belonged to them,
10 And had moved in,
11 iIn a big way.
12 This left Great Britain to fight the Battle of Britain all alone,
||13 jWithout the help of the French,
14 Which was much the best way,
15 All things considered.
16 During the Battle of Britain, the Germans managed to level large sections of London with bombs,
17 kBut forgot to invade Great Britain,
18 Because the German leader,
19 Whose name was lHitler,
20 And who had never even lived in France,
21 mNevertheless got the idea that it might be easier to conquer Russia first.
CHAPTER 531 nThis brilliant German strategy worked out pretty much the way it usually does,
2 oResulting in millions of cold soldiers dying in the bloody snow,
3 pWhich gave the Brits a lot of time to try to convince the Americans that being above it all doesn't work with Germans.
4 qBut Americans are slow learners,
5 rAnd the Brits never convinced them of anything,
6 sUntil the Japanese convinced them that being above it all doesn't work with the Japanese,
7 tWhich suggested the possibility that maybe the Brits were right about the Germans,
8 uAnd thus brought America into the war.
CHAPTER 541 Churchill kept on trying to do everything the hard way, with lots of blood, sweat, and tears,
