same lust, the same brute force which the Germans display today under the rule of the so-called "low class Nazis," they also displayed in 1914, at a time when the "highest classes" and the "noblest specimens" capable of being produced by the German nation, the Junkers, ruled that land.

No! The problem of Germanism must not again be passed along to the next generation. The world must never again be stretched and tortured on the German rack. Ours is the problem; ours the solution.

"We Allies are no monsters. This, at least, I can say, on behalf of the United Nations, to Germany ... Peace, though based on unconditional surrender, will bring to Germany and Japan immense and immediate alleviation of suffering and agony."
1945.Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill, British prime minister (1940-45 and 1951-55)
