I'm writing a fiction about a guy running away from prison (he was there for revolutionary causes convicted but he never killed anyone, he was just trying to protect his people and land). He flees to another country and meets a girl under casual circumstances. This girl falls for him at first sight, but he behaves hot and cold and tries not to open up too much with her, afraid to of the consequences of him telling the truth about his past. The girl is ostracized and mistreated by her relatives and bullied at school. She changes from being a curious, smart girl to a dull and depressed person.the worst happens when the girl is raped by some racist classmates of hers whike going back home from school. She falls into depression and tries suicides 2 times. The guy she loves goes to visit her, sees her bloody wrists and she's badly traumatized, he gets mad at her because he doesnt undestand she was raped and tells her to be strong and stop complaining cause everyone has to deal with struggles. The girls hangs herself the day after. He then discovers the truth, goea crazy at her committing suicide, cries over her body and makes a scene at her home, with her mom terrified at him telling him what actually happened. The guy plans revenge and takes somw fellow countrymen to take take the guys who committed the crime and ties them in a broken down house, blindfolded.

Churchill was indeed a whisky guzzling war criminal who ordered the indiscriminate bombing of Berlin and Dresden to target civilians, specifically women and children, and brought the Blitz on London that killed our civilians.
This was totally unnecessary since Hitler made repeated peace proposals that were rejected.

The students killed in the Kent State shootings were not involved in the protests, it was completely unjustified to open fire on them, let alone the fact the NG had live ammo, when they were not supposed to.

I remember as a boy in the 1960s seeing a movie on China which then was still strongly under the control of Moa and the Communists.The Chinese poor used to make a crude pig iron and it was outside their expertise to make steel.China back in the 1950s was a very 3rd world country and the Communists punished anyone who was a free thinker.Likely one or 2 government foundries could make decent steel but for the most China saw itself as a country of poor peasants who were not allowed to show any sort of initiative and could be severely punished for appearing to do anything that was seen as above anyone else, and were held back from advancing China.

Its certainly true that if the Germans had been stopped at the Ardennes, and the war descended into an Attritional war, France and Britain had the advantage due to the endless cornucopia of resources that their world spanning colonial empires were.

In the beginning, with his blitzkrieg tactics on Europe, he was brilliant.A fast moving war front was totally unheard of until then.The Allies were totally overwhelmed.

But then...

Stupid absolutely stupid was Der Fuhrer.

When he opened up the second front (Russia), he was destined to lose the war.He way over extended his logistics lines and totally misjudged the effect of the cold Russian winters on his troops.

The Russians successfully defended their Capital Moscow before the US even entered the War. And by 1940 the British them selves were outproducing Germany in aircraft. Id say the British and Russians crush Germany and Italy (and their dozens of smaller allies) by winter of 1946-1947.
