Is D-Day that Heroic ?

Michel Collon is one of the few journalists I truly admire, anti-imperialist and anti-interventionist, I love the stands he takes and answers two values, truth and justice. That’s why he is so polemic. Oh and he wrote about the myth of D-Day, 6th June 1944, when the USA military invaded Europe from France’s Normandy, well you know the History.

“History is written by the winners” Yes it is, and WW2 is a true example.

Did you know that Henry Truman said in 1941 : “If Germany wins, we should help Russia and if Russia wins, we must help Germany, so that the deaths in both sides stay high.”

General Motors and Ford supplied the Germans with trucks, and Esso made sure the trucks were full of oil. Yes, USA won money out of the war.

I am not implying this, historian Jacques Pauwels talks about it in his book : Le mythe de la bonne guerre : Les Etats-Unis et la Deuxième guerre mondiale. Or, The Myth of the “Good War” : The United States and the World War Two.

Keep in Mind, Hitler lost 90% of his soldiers in the East, and Stalingrad was the battle that changed everything.
