Yeah, this thread was fun until the needless anti-French sentiments popped up.

This video shows élan by the tons.

French fighter pilots were always aggressive and highly skilled, in WW1, WW2 and still are.

Don't be blinded by the British portrayal of French fighter pilots in 1940, since they took a heavy toll from the Luftwaffe, however the RAF seemed to think they did all the shooting down...

Ironically they were part of the desert flanking maneuvre during Desert Storm, all to be forgotten when they did not support Iraqi Freedom.

Why do we forget 1990/91 when we stood united?

One thing is sure, we are all just talking the talk, these french flyboys were walking the walk. Wonder if our resident heroes would dare to fly in the back seat of these crates...

I'd have to think hard myself, not believing in an afterlife etc.

Nothing Anglophobic to it, just critical about the British claims versus their French allies.

The popular view about 1940 is that the Brits did the shooting(down) and the French the running away and surrendering.

It is not a lie, nor distortion, if I write that the British claim the lion share of Luftwaffe losses during the Western Blitz.

A comment started by some needless attack on french character.

Remember that I am not French, nor have any special love for the french (or the British, or the Germans for that matter).

Dan,

I may be a stupid *****, but after having done some balanced reading I found that contrary to that popular image, the French did fight hard and did take a heavy toll of the Luftwaffe. That's by reading French, British and German material.

Interesting how my remark is pulled out of context. So it is only allowed to do bash the french?

I cannot help it if the popular image doesn't stand up to close scrutiny. To put simply the French fought harder than the popular image and the British did not fight alone.

It doesn't have anything to do with being there. You may have missed it, but where does it say that the British deserve NO credit, nor their fighting men repect?

Again, it is ironic to see what happens if you turn around the coin.

What where they saying about the french again?

Ruy, why do you think a video of some French jets beating up a beach requires you to have a pop at the Brits and the popular perception of the airwar in May, 1940? The 'cheese eating surrender monkey' point of view originated in and is largely confined to the USA. If you want to defend the French go ahead, but you don't have to defend France by having a go at some blokes who were defending France.

I enjoyed the irony of it a little though.

Nobody here said anything about the brits pwning the French pilots, nothing negative anyway. This "popular opinion" that you talk about, what exactly is it? Nobody here seems to have this opinion, and nobody with a valid opinion has it either, so what is your point?

Dan,

The Big Show is out of synch with 1940 events, although nicely written in terms of style. Also I wouldn't call myself an expert, couple of people on this forum who'll fill you in on that count, but I do my share of reading on the Battle of France (for one). More from the RAF and Luftwaffe perspectives than anything else, the French only coming in a poor third (by lack of readily available material).

Although biographies aren't the best sources, I'd recommend Paul Richey's Fighter Pilot, which isn't just a nice book to read, but an objective take on this early battle from a British POV before later events contributed to a cooling down of Anglo-French relations.

If you wish to discuss this further we'd better go PM.

HERE's the original object of this thread, I don't wish to further hijack it.

It is a novel by Philip K. **** (as in D.I.C.K.), who for the uneducated either wrote or inspired the stories behind:

Bladerunner
Total Recall
Paycheck
Minority Report

12 Monkey's and Brasil are "inspired" by his work.

Probably leaving out a couple...

Your threat (pun intended) reminds of me both UBIK and The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch, between the two I choose the former.

However after clicking Post Now I seemed to remember the original intention of this thread...

But Philip K. ****, odd at times but certainly interesting.

For those who think I only like the Luftwaffe, I also have a weak spot for Heinlein, but his later work is too much lets all have sex and if you fancy your daughter and she fancies you, what's wrong with a little debouchery. After the upteenth bridge party with darling so and so, you sense the repetition of this theme.

His early books are fun to read, bordering on kid's stuff, he fully matures with Stranger in a Strange Land.

Well who doesn't know Starship Troopers?

btw, any of you familiar with Haldeman's Forever War? Great book, a sort of modern day version of Starship Troopers.
