Re: Fighter pilots chicken?

Destroying the French fleet is yet another history lessoin in itself.

There was much more behind it.

Advances were made to the French not to let the ships be used in any way by the Germans.

That request was denied.

Hence the destruction of the fleet.

Agree though that the French Surendered.

The Poles did not .

Years later it was the UK that betrayed the Poles.
