Awesome / Battle of Britain

  • British Ambassador Sir David Kelly gives the Nazi Germany Ambassador's threats and false promises the only response they deserve.
    "If you think we're going to gamble on Herr Hitler's guarantees, you're making a grave mistake. All those years in England seems to have left you none the wiser. We're not easily frightened. Also we know how hard it is for an army to cross the Channel. The last little Corporal who tried came a cropper. So don't threaten or dictate to us until you're marching up Whitehall... and even then we won't listen."
    • Despite talking in a mostly calm tone of voice the entire time, the ambassador afterwards shamefully admits to his wife that he lost his temper for not fully suppressing the sheer rage he was feeling.
