A Time for Intermarium

Map demarcating the terms of the Brest-Litovsk Treaty

1,631 words

To understand Central and Eastern Europe as they are today, we must go back an entire century to the immediate aftermath of the First World War. As old empires collapsed, newly independent nations fought numerous conflicts for territory culminating in the Polish-Soviet War.

As soon as its own civil war was over, the Soviet Union began to break the terms of the 1918 Brest-Litovsk treaty that guaranteed the freedom of Finland, Belarus, Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia. The appearance of a large Red Army force as far west as Zhytomyr, Ukraine was finally answered in kind by a joint Polish and Ukrainian expedition with the aim of liberating Kyiv and pushing the Soviets east of the Dnieper River. While the operation was initially successful, the Soviet Union had gone to great lengths to conceal preparations for a wider offensive that nearly overwhelmed the outnumbered Polish-Ukrainian formations.

The following two months were a scene of constant rearguard action and retreat all the way to the gates of Warsaw. With the ranks of both sides swelling to a million each, a decisive victory was difficult to even contemplate. In a desperate gamble, General Pilsudski left only a token force in Warsaw and personally led the last of his fresh divisions into an unlikely counterattack from the south. By complete surprise, they tore into the Soviet flank, disorganizing their lines and forcing them into a chaotic withdrawal that turned into a rout. The amazing triumph would become renowned as the Miracle on the Vistula; had this bulwark been overcome, the Red Army may well have reached the Rhine and beyond.

This victory put a check on the expansion of Marxist ideology worldwide, sparing most of Central and Eastern Europe the horrors of Communism for decades. In the wake of failed socialist revolutions in France and Germany, the Soviet leadership decided that they must strengthen their internal position before going on the offensive again.

The thinning of unreliable populations was first on their list, and since they had total control over food production, a simple disruption in wheat distribution led to widespread famine in targeted provinces. The Don Cossack population was almost totally eliminated, and more than four million Belarusians and nine million Ukrainians perished in the genocide called the Holodomor.

Though it didn’t get a lot of coverage in Western media, this turn of events was a terrible shock to the God-fearing people of Central and Eastern Europe.

The IntermariumMiędzymorze — idea was an attempt to alleviate those concerns: a kind of early collective defense alliance. Sadly, the ethnic hatreds of that era could not be overcome, and Intermarium remained an idea. However, it did at least result in the following two decades being marked not only by peace but actual cooperation between nations, especially on security issues such as combating Comintern infiltration.

Perhaps the greatest tragedy of the Second World War is that it ended with nearly every Intermarium nation under Soviet occupation, with millions more sent to their deaths in the gulags. If nothing else, at least the shared suffering brought these countries closer together, and when the Iron Curtain fell, a cooperative promise was made to never again fall under foreign domination. While many leaders wanted to strengthen ties with the West, they were not at all keen on importing modern “values” such as radical feminism, open borders, and liberalism as a whole, leading to serious clashes over culture and mass migration that could lead to the eventual breakup of the EU.

Destroyed Soviet tank on the streets of Budapest

The Russian situation is more complicated. An obsession with the concept of “Eurasia” partly explains their keenness on developing close relations with China and our continent’s oldest enemy, Turkey. While a period of relative goodwill between Eastern Europe and Russia certainly existed during Russia’s struggles against the Muslims in Chechnya and Dagestan, it was over when Russia declared war on a fellow white nation, Georgia. Tensions between Georgia and the separatist republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia boiled over in the summer of 2008 when local militias began attacking Georgian towns in several mixed areas. Whether it was just a ruse or not remains a mystery, but the attacks nevertheless violated the 1992 Sochi agreement and the Georgian Army moved in to restore order. Even though much of the fighting had already subsided, the Russian Federation announced it was undertaking a peace enforcement operation and its military crossed the border several days later. Soon after taking over the entirety of the disputed zone, two armored divisions were positioned to strike at Tbilisi, Georgia’s capital.

Memories of the bloody struggles in Budapest and Prague still fresh in the minds of so many, a united Eastern European front opposing their aggression quickly formed, and the combined political pressure forced the Russians to at least call off their planned attack, though they never returned the seized provinces and the issue remains relevant to this day.

Polish President Lech Kaczynski was a thorn in Russia’s side for his entire time in office. Everything from his push for energy independence to security guarantees for the Baltic states ran counter to Russian interests. In early 2010, when flying in for commemorations of the 70th anniversary of the Katyn massacre perpetrated by the NKVD, his plane crashed near Smolensk airport. He was killed along with his wife, eighteen members of parliament, the head of the national bank, senior officers, and clergy.

A decapitation of government if ever there was one. No foul play was found, but the airplane’s black boxes have still not been released and the awful convenience of the entire affair cannot be overlooked.

Whatever halfhearted efforts at rapprochement followed ultimately died a few years later when Russia invaded another white country. Like my native Bulgaria, Ukraine is on the very fringes of Europe, and from the time of the Mongol and Arabic incursions, the hammer usually fell hardest there. From the middle of the 13th century to the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Ukrainian nation hardly enjoyed more than a few years of actual self-determination and was committed to remaining that way no matter the cost. When Viktor Yanukovych came to power with the help of a staggering amount of voter fraud, those familiar with this part of the world dreaded what would come next. He crucially suspended joint efforts with Japanese companies on developing advanced coal-burning technology as a substitute for natural gas, and his administration’s corruption nearly jeopardized the UEFA Euro 2012 Championship. The reforms he implemented in the Ukrainian Army were so profound in their destructiveness, that when he ordered a mechanized brigade to travel 20 miles to save him during the Maidan uprising in Kyiv in early 2014, it could not be done even if they had the will.

Right Sector members fighting with Berkut riot police

Russia was not pleased with their ally losing power in one of the so-called buffer states, and rapidly moved to salvage what it could.

Initially, Airborne troops dropped into Crimea and secured the port of Sevastopol in a matter of hours. Battalion-sized units crossed the Kerch strait that same day and completely cut off all land access to the peninsula. None of the soldiers had any markings on their uniforms, becoming infamously known as the “little green men” — a novelty was that violated the 1949 Geneva Convention. About a week later, entire unmarked regiments seized most of the Donetsk and Luhansk municipal areas, threatening the mineral-rich basin that provided a quarter of the country’s GDP.

Unmarked Russian mercenaries in the city of Sloviansk

Considering the miserable state Ukraine was in at the time, it is remarkable how little ground the Russian proxies were able to gain before the real shooting started. The first months of the war saw a huge infusion of nationalist volunteers from all over Europe to back up the regular Ukrainian forces that had just barely been able to hold their ground throughout the summer. The big pushback finally came in the fall and continued into the spring of 2015, with most of the region outside the two cities being recovered. The Minsk Protocol technically established a permanent ceasefire, but with Crimea now incorporated into the Russian Federation and Donetsk likely to follow suit at some point, a continued state of cold conflict is inevitable for the foreseeable future.

This brings us to the present day. Pressure from Brussels and Moscow against European sovereignty has been steadily increasing, and projects such as the Nordstream gas pipeline demonstrate a weird symbiosis between corrupt elites in both power centers. Talk of the need for European nations to go their own way has exploded recently, not least because of the weaknesses that led to the pandemic. The formation of the Three Seas Initiative with the Visegrád Group of Hungary, Poland, Czechia, and Slovakia at its core is the first step to doing exactly that. If the Eastern and Central European countries can wean themselves from negative foreign influences and are successful in creating an economic and military union of nations based on their common belief in our shared heritage and destiny, it could potentially become a safe haven for white people across the world.

    With Trump’s downfall I can hardly see any perspective for Intermarium (as it hinged on american support). More interestingly, those who are going to be appointed as US ambassador-governors in Warsaw and Kiev, will shed some light on Harris-Biden’s administration likely plans for the sub-region.

    Hopefully this “cordon sanitaire” remains only an american (and polish) wet dream. Its nothing more, never was. Just to keep Europe divided and down on her knees. With forthcoming american decline, the (massive political) changes in Germany and Russia are what really is desperatly needed, to lift Europe after 80 years from her knees…

    Central Europe is a german term, from Visegrád countries only Czech Republic and half of Poland are really central european. Hungary and Slovakia are Transleithania and historical Poland is european salvic east.

    And please, don’t use word “Czechia” ever again (to put it mildly: jdi s tim, kámo, do háje!), it comes from our ruling (atlanticist) morons in Prague.

    Salutation!

      It doesn’t matter what they are in some obscure 19th century phraseology, what matters is that the four v4 countries have a genuine, organic partnership going on, that hasn’t grown into something more ambitious because people who lead these countries are not chasers of slogans and fixed ideas, but realistic people who base their decisions on common sense and practicality (none of them are nearly perfect, but this is a comparative judgment).

      For this reason more is this Intermarium idea nonsensical, because it is basically centered around the idea of bringing together into the mix nations that are *not* as cordial as these 4 states, with wildly different political cultures and priorities, whose only common thing is that they are *not* something (not pro Russian, not pro German, etc), and they occupy the most vaguely defined geographical region. Plus, it aims to accomplish a goal which is bot stupid and fantastical, which is to integrate Belarus and Ukraine, something that even USA and EU can’t accomplish, and which is sure to fail. People have to start coping with the fact that Russia is not a social construct, but a real country with a real government and real power which is going to behave exactly the way you think its going to behave, and no other way.

      The whole of EE hasn’t moved an inch beyond 1939 in political mentality, except for Hungary, which is the only country with a sober-minded and pragmatic foreign office which is not staffed with dilettantes, dim-witted historians and ideologues and map fiddlers. (And have been before the war too). The whole of Polish foreign policy is retarded. They are the kind of people who give their streets names of Chechen opposition figures or some stupid thing like that.

        Maybe not so fantastical, if only we think about only WESTERN parts of Belarus and Ukraine, namely which were western of the Soviet Union´s border in August 1939. Those lands were violently annexed and their population did not want to be Soviet citizens. When Belarus and Ukraine fall apart, those lands will get independent and/or would be retaken by Poles, so as by Hungarians, Slovaks and Romanians. The people in those lands were Europeans, if maybe primitive too, and they want to be Europeans. The rest of Ukraine and Belarus are not Europeans and do not want to be Europeans. The Stalin´s annexation in the West in 1939-45 were his big mistake and created ethnical and cultural chimaeras and the time bombs under the Soviet Union.
        Now it would be best solution for Ukrainians and Belarusians to let them go – back to Europe. And the rest of Ukrainians and Belarusians will live good and happy without those destructive “Europeans” co-citizens, which always make some bloody and stupid revolutions, Maydans etc.

    Intermarium is just Vatican-Polish substitute for German or Russian jackboot. Everyone who thinks that Polish Winged-Hussar’s whip ( blessed by popes ) will be any better than Russian or German is a complete idiot. Interemarium is basically intermittent Polish whet dream of bringing back his Polish-Lithanian hegemony back from the cemetery and creating in some great new Polish Commonwealth zombie where Poland would be primus inter pares ( officially ) . Sorry but here is my sincere feelings about that ” fuck Poland and fuck their wet dream ” intermium would be only viable as confederation of states where no one of the members can wield commanding power. Poland would be even worse because they are more power hungry and than Germans. Even Intrmarium becomes viable Polish imperial pretensions to create it’s little empire on three seas need to be cut from the start. Only countries capable for that are Romanina and Hungary .Orban is basically cleptocratic autocrat in the similar vein like that klerofasitic cross-licker Kaczyńsky( with never proper cured erotic fixation for his mother ); But good things Orban doesn’t like to be told what to do in his backyard by some Polish yokel; plus he still has lucrative deals with Putin. So probably with that in place Polish hegemonic dreams will be stillborne. On the other hand Hungary’s big honcho is in Putin’s pocket so again we have a problem. Also Orban is trying to workout some light irredenta in the Hunariain populated areas of Romaina , Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia and Slovakia so here we also have an issue. Basically the propitious circumstances would be that Hungary gets new nomenclature that is not so gung-ho irredentic and has more guarded stance vis a vis Putin ; and so that it can find with Romaina ( and Czech Republic ) common ground and workout there issues; in order to counterbalance Poland. Then maybe and just maybe we could have viable confederation of the states that could balance between western Europe, Russia, China and USA. But for now i only see Polish zombie wet dream; for my country it is better still to deal with Germans that Polish crazies, ” like they say it is always better to deal with the devil that you know”

      Anyway Trump was right when he relocated some US troops from Germany to Poland. In the eventuality of conflict with Russia the Poles would fight, fight bravely and fight side by side with the Americans. And the Germans and particularly the French would shoot the “Amis” in the back and greet Russian “liberators” with flowers.

    The Eastern Europe ‘safe haven’ idea has gained some currency within the dissident right. If there is any evidence that Eastern Europeans, at a grass roots level, share such a vision then I’ve not seen it. If I was them, I don’t know how much sympathy I’d feel for us.

      Eastern Europeans feel about fifty-fifty for you. Given the near-monopoly of the liberal media, the majority tends to believe the official liberal narrative, but there’s a very strong minority that can see right through it. Don’t forget that we have already been vaccinated to marxism, so I think that we’re in a better position to weather version 2.0. Politics aside, Muricans are welcome here, so that is why I say overall fifty-fifty. That score may improve given the proper conditions. Don’t forget that safe haven is a long term idea.

      That said, I wish you resilience, awareness, stay sharp, keep calm and carry on. Any storm has an end.

    Years ago, I used to collect old porcelain plates I’d find in antique shops. Once I found a lovely one painted with exquisite small roses, and the mark on the back said “Silesia”. I’d never heard of Silesia and figured it must have been one of the old German ‘kingdoms’ of the 19th Century. Recently, I looked up Silesia again, when I was giving away my porcelain to a friend with children who would cherish the collection through the years — and it turned out to be an area between Germany, Poland, the now-Czech Republic and Slovakia. Previous incarnations had placed it among Bohemia, Moravia, Prussia and other obscure, long-forgotten, once-proud kingdoms and fiefdoms of the Habsburg dynasty. It was later divided and ping-ponged around after WWI and again, after all the squabbles, treaties and land-rearrangements following WWII.

    It came again to my rapt attention when hearing one of the most gorgeous pieces of music ever, “The Three Sorrowful Songs” of Henryk Gorecki. When I looked up the composer, I found he had been born, lived and worked in Upper Silesia from 1939-2010, and had been a fervent patriot of Silesian independence and Nationalism throughout all its trades and swaps among other countries. I think it’s finally now part of Poland and a bit of Germany. So, I bought a book recently which just arrived, on its history entitled “Nation and Loyalty in a German-Polish Borderland: Upper Silesia, 1848-1960” by Brendan Karch. And now this essay on Intermerium’ has jus arrived as if by magic — I have a lot of reading to do!

    Central Europe is taking on new meaning today, as I understand that Hungary is one of the main opponents of open borders in the E.U., and I think I heard that Austria is as well. This signals to me that Europe is beginning to wake up and fight back against these horrid invasions from the Middle East and Africa. Now I want to know more about this entire region and I’m thinking that, of all places in Europe, this region might lead the way out for European Nationalism to flourish; and they may also be one of our best allies in American White Nationalism.

    I urge everyone to listed to Gorecki’s “Third Symphony of Three Sorrowful Songs” — they are soul-bending cries from Silesia medieval past through WWII. And read Gorecki’s bio on Wikipedia as well as the discussion of his Third Symphony with a translation of its words. Silesia was and is primarily a Catholic country, though often flooded with refugees fleeing nearby battles over territory, including Jews fleeing pogroms, and now Jewish holocaust-wailers have claimed this piece of music as ‘their own’. I say it is not ! — it’s a hymn to all Silesians, and especially to the few brave Silesian Nationalists keeping its legacy alive today.

      Silesia is Schlesien, ein deutsches Land, now occupied by Poles. So as Eastern Prussia is divided and occupied by Poles and Russians. The so calles Slavs are just eastern German tribes which were pagans in the early Middle Ages. If you read German you can find in Net the book Die Slawenlegende by Lothar Greil (there is a Russian translation too; Лотар Грайль, Славянская легенда).

        Silesia is Śląsk, polską ziemią, now reclaimed by Poland. So as Warmia and Kaliningrad Oblast have been liberated from germanic occupation and restored for the slavic world. Western slavic lands of Polabians and Sorbs in eastern Germany will yearn for liberation as well, especially when turkish threat spreads far enough.

          Alexandra O’s comment shows how successful historical blackout can be if a whole powerful clique is conspiratorially united in eliminating facts and truth. The truth is that Schlesien -in English Silesia- has been a province in Eastern Germany, entirely populated by Germanics for as long as historical memory lasts. East Prussia, West Prussia East Brandenburg, as a rough outline are equally historically German. The Poles had already in 1848 passed a resolution at the First Pan-Slavic Congress to move the western border to the Oder-Neisse rivers, as well as to incorporate East Prussia into a future Poland. The elimination of all Germans from these purely German provinces was accepted as the necessary step to commit this act of aggression.
          With the help of Wilson in the First, and that of Roosevelt and Churchill, all of them as ignorant in history as in geography, as well as in good sense, in the second World War, this insane act of chauvinism could be realized. It cost Germany, the densest populated country in Europe, one third of its area and was realized by the most extensive “ethnic cleansing” in world history. That’s nothing to boast of. Altogether about twenty million Germans lost their homes in the course of realizing this westward move. Both the Bierut and Benes decrees spelling the expulsion out are well remembered.
          The kind of comment you make makes me wonder whether any effort to secure the survival of the white race in general, and Europe as the home continent of the white race in particular, has any prospect of success. You have obviously not moved beyond the Polish rhetoric of 14, of 1919 or 1939.

        It’s the other way around. The Eastern Germans are Germanized Slavs.
        This is supported by genetics (lots of R1a haplogroups in Eastern Germany, and almost none in the West), as well as toponymic – lots of cities with Slavic Names, and Prussian nobility names.

    Several years ago I was visiting family in the Czech Republic. There was a national election scheduled and political billboards dotted the highways. One of the pro-nationalist political parties, SPD, featured their leader, Tomio Okamura, on their signs. Under his picture were various slogans. Two in particular caught my attention. One said, “No to Isam, no to terrorism!” another objected to accepting immigration and refugees.

    I told my cousin that this SPD party looked pretty solid; in the US no political party could openly make such blunt statements. He then explained that there was nothing unusual about opposing Islam or immigrants among Czech political parties. If a party wanted to have any chance of electoral success, it had to adopt some opposition to EU dictates on accepting immigrants or “refugees.”

    To my American ears it sounded like Eastern Europe had a strong and opposite opinion on the immigration question compared to their Western European neighbors. And when you see the cultural and demographic decay and decline in Western Europe, an outsider could be forgiven for thinking Eastern Europe is the best hope for a last stand. So when I first read about Intermarium I was fascinated by the idea.

    But the more I hear from Eastern Europeans within the nations that would compose Intermarium, the more I realize how little I understand of the practical complexities. Although almost all the people in this region are Slavic, and share some history of oppression by foreign powers, they are very different. They distrust each other, sometimes for good reason.

    It seems bizarre to me that Eastern Europe is resistant to an Intermarium-like military alliance and/or trade union given how Brussels imposes political mandates that spit in the face of popular opinion. But that’s the superficial observation of an outsider. I don’t appreciate the deep historical and cultural differences between these seemingly similar Eastern bloc nations.

    I would hope that Eastern Europeans could see the threat leftist bureaucrats in Brussels pose before it’s too late. The EU certainly depends on dividing the east against itself to maintain control. But making Intermarium functional may be an impractical effort akin to herding cats.

      I’ve seen more people named Mohammad in Hungary than anywhere else. They are already everywhere, ‘staying’ there, presumably, forever. Arabs are simply bankrolling the openings of businesses there, and they hire a huge amounts of Muslims who are students (Hungarian universities are brimming with Muslims), or in any other way, and it’s all legal because muh free market and muh legal immigration. The whole sight is pathetic. I was the only guy there who explicitly refused to be seen in a Muslim-owned restaurant (they are everywhere), all of which naturally, enforce Shariah by not serving pork. I was forced to explain to them that Muslims never eat in places which are not owned by Muslims, something their walnut-sized brains were perplexed with for quite some time, riddled as they are with EU propaganda taught by local so called Academia. They actually never noticed that until I pointed it out. People already started, with their body language, to show maximum deference to Muslims, speaking to them in high-pitched voices with formal politeness and making space when a group of Muslims go by (they all walk exclusively in large groups). The blacks are frankly, behaving somewhat better. The only saving grace is the local law enforcement, which is keeping them all on tight leash, and being unforgiving if they catch them misbehaving. But we know how long that stuff will last without efforts to remove the aliens.

      You can only have your cake and eat it too for so long. They have to choose whether their country is for sale, because they are in the EU right now solely for money, but they have to play the ball too. Life doesn’t work like that. If you are getting money, you are playing by the rules, and you have to choose which one do you want. Of course, nobody has courage to come to the unwashed masses and tell them “there’s gonna be less money less year” which is why we are all stuck where we are

        Good news.
        “For the first time a political leader has referred to Political Islam. Chancellor Kurz of Austria has called out Political Islam as a criminal conspiracy that needs to be discussed and made illegal. Political Islam is responsible not only for acts of jihad, but also gives it moral and financial support.

        This is a major step forward. Instead of seeing jihadists as mentally ill, they are acknowledged as part of a political group dedicated to the destruction of Austria.

        Kurz also makes the point that European countries need to unify, since no one country can defeat Political Islam.”

        If you were meeting a lot of people named Muhammad in Hungary, you must have been spending your time in some very unusual places.

        “They are already everywhere, ‘staying’ there, presumably, forever.”

        That’s nonsense.

        “Arabs are simply bankrolling the openings of businesses there, and they hire a huge amounts of Muslims who are students (Hungarian universities are brimming with Muslims), or in any other way”

        This is absolute nonsense, unless you’re talking about some of the fast food places. The idea that Hungarian universities are “brimming with Muslims” is ridiculous. They aren’t.

        “I was the only guy there who explicitly refused to be seen in a Muslim-owned restaurant”

        You must have been in Budapest on a British stag do.

        “People already started, with their body language, to show maximum deference to Muslims, speaking to them in high-pitched voices with formal politeness and making space when a group of Muslims go by (they all walk exclusively in large groups).”

        You never see “large groups” of Muslims in Hungary ever, and the behavior you described about Hungarians in relation to Muslims is non-existent. Hungarians are never deferential to foreigners, least of all Muslims.

        “The whole sight is pathetic.”

          I agree. I’ve never visited Hungary, but my experience with Hungarians is not consistent with Arthur’s description. How do you explain Viktor Orban’s political success in a country that is supposedly flooded with and deferential to Muslim invaders?

          Eastern Europe doesn’t carry the “white guilt” ethno-masochism that Western Europe and the anglophone countries do. The average Eastern European’s default position is no to immigration, no to Islam, and pride in their identity and history. You don’t need to be an avowed nationalist to hold these opinions in Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, etc. That’s why this region is ripe for an ethno-nationalist message. And that’s why Intermarium is a great theoretical idea.

          In order to preserve each of their unique homelands for the next generation, they need to think bigger. Use Intermarium or some other loose economic/military association as a guard against EU-mandates that destroy their borders and sovereignty and identity. That sweet EU money may look attractive in the short-term, but at what cost to your children’s future?

      The New York Times is a cultural phenomenon, i.e. propaganda arm of the Jewish interpretation of America.

      In the matter of the Supreme Court, the Treasury, the Federal Reserve, the military industrial complex, the educational edifice, i.e. the propaganda complex, the Council on Foreign Relations, the CIA, media, etc., all constitute various departments of the United States of Israel. The New York Times is the voice of Israel. America is a satrapy under Israeli domination.

      Seen from that perspective U.S. policy makes sense, i.e explains much that is obscure. Certainly as well, makes sense of Canada’s subordinate behaviour in all matters. Canada has no media not suborned to exogenous influence. In that light, Canada’s elites are liars.

      My father, when watching the 11 pm news back in the late 50s and 60s, often burst out laughing. About many things he would say “…watch out for schools.” Or, “…minorities rule.” Another favourite, “…leaders always throw their people under the tram.”
      Another of his aphorisms was “ There is only one thing worse than a thief; a liar.”

      He was with the British Expeditionary Force in Palestine enforcing the Balfour Resolution in 1936. I think for him that experience was the lens through which he saw the unfolding of the 20th Century.

      That and being captured on the Island of Leros by German paratroops after Stalin and Roosevelt failed to support Churchill’s desire to invade up through the Aegean and cut of the Russian thrust into Germany. He eventually escaped from prisoner of war camp outside Munich towards the last days of the war. Between 1936 and 1945 he was with the Eighth Army in North Africa having volunteered to “make a nuisance of himself “ with the LRDG, the Long Range Desert Group, a precursor to what in America would be like being a Navy Seal.

      He was on Malta during the entire siege, and incidentally was on three ships sunk “under him.” He jumped out of planes, was landed from submarines.

      Being a man of enormous curiosity, courage and grace under pressure, and extremely well read he was also a many with integrity and a determined moral centre. He never spoke directly to me about the war or his conclusions. But of course my mother asked him questions while watching the 20th Century and Navy Log or events like President Kennedy’s assassination on TV.

      More than anything though it was his books, stacks of them, which informed. And his career after the war which disclosed he had knowledges about events not commonly disclosed until of course much more recently. As a kid we had a next door neighbour who had fought with Hitler youth. My dad could converse in rudimentary German. He had learnt this in case he was captured. He said, speaking German was most useful when he got caught escaping the first six times. Like he said, the Germans he encountered were young like him and certainly not SS or Gestapo. By the time he was captured German soldiers knew they had lost the war. By 1945 prisoner of war camps were guarded and run by old men — 17 or 18 year olds.

      He and his neighbour had the kind of relationship common among soldiers despite being from opposing armies. I probably overhead their conversations then without truly understanding their import. My sense of the war as an 8, 9, or 10 year old came from comic books — written and drawn in New York. Just like the New York Times! We had the Sunday New York Times at home every Monday evening. Dad brought it home from work.

      After the war my father joined the Royal Canadian Air Force; he and five others produced all the Public Relations for the Air Force including Radio productions heard across Canada on the CBC— until the three branches of defence were amalgamated in 1968.
      His time there included the Bomarc Missile Crisis and the demise of the Avro Arrow. The United States Air Force deployed two sites in Canada. The Bomarc Missile Crisis was a Cold War-era dispute over whether Canada should house nuclear missiles as part of its NORAD air defence agreement with the United States. Of course the Crisis required good public relations. There were lots of lines to read between.

      For instance fact that the Bomarc missiles were to have Nuclear war heads was kept from the public.

      Things are seldom what they seem, or what you are suggested to think.
