British WWII vets say nation has betrayed them.

When asked if WWII was worth it, British WWII vets are saying “no.” The vets, now in their 80’s and 90’s don’t recognize the Britain that 400,000 died for.

Long held taboos on criticizing Winston Churchill over World War II have broken down. Historians now freely admit that Churchill played a major role in escalating the conflict and began bombing German civilian targets nine months before the first bombs fell in Britain. Long before the Germans even physically possessed bombers capable of retaliating.

Pat Buchanan’s new book points out Churchill’s hypocritical foreign policy of feeding Finland and Eastern Europe to the Soviet Union while starting a world war with Germany for annexing a tiny majority German corridor in Poland.

A popular WWII author in Britain, Leo McKinstry, examines declassified internal RAF documents in his new book. He shows that the targeting of German civilians was not “incidental” but very intentional. He estimates that the RAF killed over 600,000 German civilians. (click here.)

So now, 64 years after the war has ended. The UK Mail is asking vets, “was it all worth it.” Facing a radically and purposely transformed socialist/multicultural society with no freedom of speech, British vets are saying “no.”

Curious about his grandmother’s generation and what they did in the war, he decided three years ago to send letters to local newspapers across the country asking for those who lived through the war to write to him with their experiences.

He rounded off his request with this question: ‘Are you happy with how your country has turned out? What do you think your fallen comrades would have made of life in 21st-century Britain?’

What is extraordinary about the 150 replies he received, which he has now published as a book, is their vehement insistence that those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the war would now be turning in their graves.

There is the occasional bright spot – one veteran describes Britain as ‘still the best country in the world’ – but the overall tone is one of profound disillusionment.

‘I sing no song for the once-proud country that spawned me,’ wrote a sailor who fought the Japanese in the Far East, ‘and I wonder why I ever tried.’

‘My patriotism has gone out of the window,’ said another ex-serviceman.

In the Mail this week, Gordon Brown wrote about ‘our debt of dignity to the war generation’.

But the truth that emerges from these letters is that the survivors of that war generation have nothing but contempt for his government.

They feel, in a word that leaps out time and time again, ‘betrayed’.
