Is that really the Quote? I swear I saw that in Ambrose this time but I can’t imagine HK uttering a phrase he would know to be so closely associated with appeasement and Chamberlain and WWII. Maybe it was some kind of code.
But her he is, a “brilliant”, “megalomaniac”, whose self-confidence knew no bounds. What else can you make of A&B’s assessment of HK? Was he a war criminal?
Was he just a doddering old man?
and how was his, and Nixon’s, foreign policy?
