    Dunkirk wasn't purposely done as a "peace gesture" and either was Rudolf Hess's flight.

    What if the USSR had to fight on two fronts in the early stages of the war, Germany from the West and Japan from the East?

    The Pervitin (Meth) that the German soldiers were taking could only go so far. Von Runstedt told Hitler they had to halt in order to re-fit, rest, and let the lines catch up and consolidate. Hitler was also assured by Goring that The Luftwaffe could handle the men at the ports, and Hitler thought the Luftwaffe, a Nazi creation in the eyes of Hitler, should get the honor of defeating the British on the beach and preventing the escape.
