      Many asked themselves the question: why did Hitler not finish off the British in Dunkirk? According to some researchers, at that moment Hitler’s nerves passed, and he didn’t have the courage to take a bold step: attack the Anglo-French forces from the West. Others believe that the Germans at that moment simply did not have enough strength - the Allied forces, like a compressed spring, could provide sufficient resistance. Most agree that Hitler considered the French an endangered nation, and the British - the fraternal people, akin to the Germanic.

    If more than 5 thousand are large-scale exercises for them, then what can they think about our ordinary ones, with the participation of thirty to forty-one hundred thousand?
