Why is Dunkirk considered a big victory for the British when it’s just them running away?
>>
>>10237787
It depends. What’s their Haplogroup?
>>
>>10237787
The Germans letting the British retreat symbolises the german-anglo white consciousness and how even at the heart of a war that chivalry continues
>>
>>10237787
Yeah I'm sure she said "white boys" and that that wasn't something you added yourself. Also there are niggers waiting for boats as well.

Why do you insist on being ignorant? Is it because it makes all of your positions look bad?

If the germans knew what was coming, the anglos would've been massacred.
>>

Nah Hitler was just a strategic retard
>>
>>10238027
What?
>>
>>10237787
Because their army wasn't lost, and the boys got sent home. It could've been worse.

Why are these faggots always pretending their kids spontaneously come up with these snarky remarks that perfectly align with their own opinions?

They bravely ran away.
Bravely ran away away

Doesn't sound political to me, sounds like a 14-year-old who doesn't get a movie that was made for more grown-up people

It's funny because it's hilariously reductive
>>
>>10237787
Nobody considers it a victory in the sense of winning a fight. It was a very well executed fighting retreat and strategic withdrawal done on a logistical shoestring in the face of what seemed at the time to be an overwhelming military juggernaut, which is why it's been so publicized and praised through the decades.
>>
>>10237787
Because they were not totally annihilated?
>>
>>10237787
It was a victory in that the army survived.
>>
>>10237787
One of Britain's greatest wins, one they still crow about to this day, was one where 99% of the work was done by the weather. Another of their greatest wins had the Prussians do most of the actual work. What I'm saying is sasuga Albion.
>>
>>10238986
The same Perfidioids who crow about Dunkirk as a brilliant fighting retreat then turn around go "LOL WARSHINGTON JUST RAN AWAY M8".
>>
Successfully (to an extent) concluding a difficult military maneuver has its merits. It's not as glorious as victory, but leagues better than your army getting captured/wiped out.
>>
>>10237928
Pretty sure 16k Frenchies died in a week to slow down the German advance and prevent them from reaching Dunkirk before the Anglos had left

Probably because it allowed them to fight another day since the German army failed to destroy a significant portion of the British army

it's considered a victory because the Germans should have been able to capture the British forces at Dunkirk. Their failure to do so was a huge relief for the british. It gave the British hope that the bulk of the British troops escaped the continent to fight another day. but it obviously wasn't a victory like the Soviet victory at Stalingrad. Still, it was a victory.

>If a European territorial policy was only possible against Russia in alliance with England, conversely, a policy of colonies and world trade was conceivable only against England and in alliance with Russia. But then we had dauntlessly to draw the consequences and, above all, abandon Austria in all haste

>But we did not think of concluding an alliance with Russia against England, any more than with England against Russia, for in both cases the end would have been war, and to prevent this we decided in favour of a policy of commerce and industry. In the 'peaceful economic' conquest of the world we possessed a recipe which was expected to break the neck of the former policy of violence once and for all. Occasionally, perhaps, we were not quite sure of ourselves, particularly when time to time threats came over from England; therefore, we decided to build a fleet, though not to attack and destroy England, but for the 'defence' of our old friend 'world peace' and 'peaceful' conquest of the world. Consequently, it was kept on a somewhat more modest scale in all respects, not only in number but also in tonnage of the individual ships as well as in armament, so as in the final analysis to let our 'peaceful' intentions shine through after all
>>
>>10242654
>The talk about the 'peaceful economic' conquest of the world was possibly the greatest nonsense which has ever been exalted to be a guiding principle of state policy. What made this nonsense even worse was that its proponents did not hesitate to call upon England as a crown witness for the possibility of such an achievement. The crimes of our academic doctrine and conception of history in this connection can scarcely be made good and are only a striking proof of how many people there are who 'learn' history without understanding or even comprehending it. England, in particular, should have been recognised as the striking refutation of this theory; for no people has ever with greater brutality better prepared its economic conquests with the sword, and later ruthlessly defended them, than the English nation

>Is it not positively the distinguishing feature of British statesmanship to draw economic acquisitions from political strength, and at once to recast every gain in economic strength into political power? And what an error to believe that England is personally too much of a 'coward' to stake her own blood for her economic policy! The fact that the English people posessed no 'people's army' in no way proved the contrary'; for what matters is not the momentary military form of the fighting forces, but rather the will and determination to risk those which do exist. England has always possessed whatever armament she happened to need. She always fought with the weapons which success demanded. She fought with mercenaries as long as mercenaries sufficed; but she reached down into the precious blood of the whole nation when only such a sacrifice could bring victory; but the determination for victory, the tenacity and ruthless pursuit of this struggle, remained unchanged
>>
>>10242661
>In Germany, however, the school, the press, and comic magazines cultivated a conception of the Englishman's character, and almost more so of his Empire, which inevitably led to one the most insidious delusions; for gradually everyone was infected by this nonsense, and the consequence was an underestimation for which we would have to pay most bitterly. This falsification went so deep that people became convinced that in the Englishman they faced a businessman as shrewd as personally he was unbelievably cowardly. The fact that a world empire the size of the British could not be put together by mere subterfuge and swindling was unfortunately something that never even occurred to our exalted professors of academic science. The few who raised a voice of warning were ignored or killed by silence. I remember well my comrades' look of astonishment when we faced the Tommies in person at Flanders. After the very first days of battle the conviction dawned on them that these Scotsmen did not exactly jibe with the pictures they had seen fit to give us in the comic magazines and press dispatches. It was then that I began my first reflections about the importance of the form of propaganda

because without what happenned ,thousand of soldiers would have been killed or get jailed and it would be a huge loss of manpower and moral.Also something as always not showed and mentionned is the heroic resistance of few regiments of french soldiers ,entrenched and surrounded who permited to gain precious hours by making germans struggling with them.Without these french ,its most likely dunkirk would have been a huge fest of british blood on beaches .

The incident involved many thousands of British patiently waiting in line which is a cornerstone of their cultural identity.

Because saving 300k troops is a big deal and perhaps the most important part of Britain not making peace with Germany in 1940-41.
>>
>>10243498
Britain “won” insofar as it came out the best out of all the European countries. their biggest problems was learning to cope with ceding authority to the USA, who had a foreign policy 95% in line with the UK anyways. The UK went from having one reliable ally in 1940 after the fall of France (Canada) to being one of the Big Three in 1945. The USSR and USA were always gonna be superpowers when they came out of their self-imposed isolations.
>>
>>10244110
The Brits wouldn't have peaced anyways, but those 300k troops were seen as crucial to the defence of the German amphibious assault they expected to be fighting shortly. The British didn’t realize that the Germutts had nothing to contest naval superiority with and were in a far worse position with air superiority as well, as evidenced during the Battle of Britain. The true victory in Dunkirk was a moral victory after the rapid fall of France making every Brit demoralized. Having to surrender 300k POW’s would have sucked, but they would have continued the war.

A WWII movie from france would be as much coping historical revisionist propaganda as one from the USA, maybe even worse.

Nonsense. German units were ready to take the port from the Western side which was only lightly defended then. Hitler just fucked up and told them to stop and when the attack was resumed days later defenses had been prepared.
>>
>>10237787
Dunkirk is considered a victory for perfidious angloïds because their escape caused the death of thousands of French soldiers.
Not only do anglos pertain the myth that French people surrender when they ran away first, but they even make movies in which French soldiers are cowards even though they sacrificed themselves to save the worthless anglos.

Angloïds consider a victory to destroy the reputation and lives of French people

It's the best possible interpretation of an extremely dire situation. The Brits are very good at that. It's the 'always look on the bright side of life' approach to war. Would it make more sense to you if the Brits were crying about the loss of France and their own immanent invasion instead of smiling about the successful evacuation of their troops? It's not that hard to understand.

Fascinating. He had the exact insight into why Germany had lost WW1, then went on to make almost the same mistake again: underestimating Britain's resolve to fight in 1939.

Incidentally, the Japanese made exactly the same mistake about the Americans in WW2 - they started believing their own propaganda and became convinced that the American was essentially a businessman who had no stomach for serious warfare, and that they only had to present America with a war that would be expensive and America would back down.

I don't think Hitler really believed the UK would fold because of a lack of will to continue. I think it's that he sincerely overestimated the appeal of anti-communism to the British government (outside the Cliveden Set). It's as if he were always perplexed that the Brits weren't fighting the Russians instead.

Yeah they were in no position to even dream about invading the british isles, sure the airforce was in a good position, at the start, but the naval assets were terribly outmatched and outgunned the the marine didn't even have the crafts to land troops, or the ships to transport them and turns out the channel isn't easy to just run across, even with the americans who had been doing nothing but amphibious landings in the pacific it took a lot of planning. Not to mention the place was mined to hell and back.

Yes? It's pretty rare that you invade a country in a glorious war only to be completely shackled by said countries existing legal institutions, all of which you are keeping, and expanding limits on your own power, if we compare it to actual wars of conquest, like the Norman conquest, the comparison is absurd, William totally upended te existing political order, William, on the other hand, barely did a thing, the glrious revolution has far more in common with a coup than a serious war.
